The DFG-fun­ded pro­ject "Ana­ly­sis of maxi­mum a pos­te­riori esti­ma­tors: Com­mon con­ver­gence theo­ries for Baye­sian and varia­tio­nal inverse pro­blems" aims to advance the state of the art in rigo­rous mathe­ma­ti­cal under­stan­ding of MAP esti­ma­tors in infi­nite-dimen­sio­nal sta­tis­ti­cal inverse pro­blems. As part of this pro­ject, a post­doc­to­ral rese­ar­cher is sought for a posi­tion to last two years.

rese­arch assi­stant (post­doc) (m/f/d)

full-time job | limi­ted to 2 years |Ent­gelt­gruppe 13 TV-L FU | refe­rence code: MAP-Ana­ly­sis

Work­ing field:

The post­doc­to­ral rese­ar­cher will con­duct mathe­ma­ti­cal rese­arch into the defi­ni­tion and ana­ly­sis of MAP esti­ma­tors in infi­nite-dimen­sio­nal spaces, in the spi­rit of the "small balls" approach pionee­red by Dashti, Law, Stuart, and Voss. The aim is to deve­lop a mathe­ma­ti­cal struc­ture that links the con­ver­gence theory for MAP esti­ma­tors to the fully Baye­sian approach.


  • Doc­to­rate in mathe­ma­tics or sta­tis­tics

Readi­ness for mathe­ma­ti­cal rese­arch at the inter­face of mea­sure theory and varia­tio­nal cal­cu­lus. It is desi­ra­ble that the can­di­date's PhD topic be clo­sely rela­ted to Baye­sian non-para­metric sta­tis­tics, inverse pro­blems, or the cal­cu­lus of varia­ti­ons. Pro­gramming skills are not essen­tial but advan­ta­ge­ous, and will open up addi­tio­nal rese­arch direc­tions wit­hin the pro­ject.

How to ap­ply:
