(02) Postdoctoral Position:

Summary of postdoc position: We are seeking a full-time Postdoctoral Research Assistant to work on an ERC-funded project (MUSMICRO) to explore the causes and consequences of natural variation in the mammalian gut microbiome. The post is fixed-term for 3 years in the first instance, with the possibility of extension. The post will focus on asking how naturally occurring variation in the gut microbiome affects host physiology, and ultimately host fitness traits (survival and reproduction), using wild house mice as a model system. The post will involve both collecting and analysing observational data from the wild, and performing controlled gnotobiotic (microbiome transfer) experiments in the lab.

(10) Postdoctoral Position:

Summary of postdoc position: We are seeking a Postdoctoral Research Assistant, to join our group at the Department of Statistics. The Postdoctoral Research Assistant will be carrying out research for the ERC project General Theory for Big Bayes, reporting to Professor Judith Rousseau. They will provide guidance to junior members of the research group such as PhD students, and/or project volunteers. The aim of this project is to develop a general theory for the analysis of Bayesian methods in complex and high (or infinite) dimensional models which will cover not only fine understanding of the posterior distributions but also an analysis of the output of the algorithms used to implement the approaches. The main objectives of the project are (briefly): 1) Asymptotic analysis of the posterior distribution of complex high dimensional models 2) Interactions between the asymptotic theory of high dimensional posterior distributions and computational complexity. We will also enrich these theoretical developments by 3) strongly related domains of applications, namely neuroscience, terrorism and crimes and ecology.
