Two Tenure track positions in Mathematical Statistics as Assistant/Associate professor

University of Amsterdam - Korteweg-de Vries Institute for Mathematics

Are you a mathematical statistician who is passionate about scientific research
and education and enjoys participating in multi-disciplinary projects?

At the Statistics group of the Korteweg-de Vries Instituut voor Wiskunde
(KdVI), the mathematical research institute of the Faculty of Science of the
University of Amsterdam, we are looking for new colleagues with expertise in
mathematical statistics or mathematical data science, including (but not
restricted to) computational statistics, statistical learning, and statistical
data science.

The position comes with a start-up package consisting of one PhD student and a
travel budget.

The Korteweg-de Vries Institute strives for a better gender balance in its
staff. We therefore strongly encourage women to apply for this position.

Application deadline: December 1, 2019

The Statistics group of the KdVI aims to develop new statistical theory and
methodology, including their rigorous justification. The group will be headed
by dr. Joris Mooij. The Statistics group is part of the larger Stochastics
programme, which also contains the Probability group, headed by Prof. Michel
Mandjes. Within the science faculty there are interesting related groups. In
particular, in the area of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning there
are closely related activities within the Computer Science department (IvI) and
the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation (ILLC). An interesting
development is the recent launch of the Innovation Center for Artificial
Intelligence (ICAI), which promotes public-private partnerships in the general
area of AI.
