Research Associate in Statistics

Applications are invited for a Research Associate position in the Department of Mathematics at Imperial College London to work in the area of Bayesian Non-Parametric statistics. The position is funded through the EPSRC Grant EP/R013519/1. The Research Associate will work directly with Dr Sarah Filippi and in collaboration with Prof Chris Holmes (Alan Turing Institute).

The post holder will work on developing a novel Bayesian Non-Parametric Test for Conditional Independence. This is at the core of modern causal discovery, itself of paramount importance throughout the sciences and in Machine Learning. In particular, the discovery of causal relationships is fundamental in public health and epidemiology, in life and earth sciences, in sociological studies and in econometrics.
