XV Conferencia Española de Biometría y V Encuentro Iberoamericano de Biometría.

Nos complace invitarle a la XV Edición de la Conferencia Española de Biometría organizada por el Departamento de Matemática Aplicada y Estadística e Investigación Operativa de UPV/EHU a instancias de la Sociedad Española de Biometría, que en esta ocasión se celebra junto al V Encuentro Iberoamericano de Biometría. El evento tendrá lugar en Bilbao, en el Bizkaia Aretoa, los días 22, 23, 24 y 25 de septiembre de 2015.

Asistiendo al evento tendrá la oportunidad de descubrir Bilbao, una ciudad que por su historia y situación, ofrece un coctel formidable donde arquitectura, gastronomía, tradición, mar y montaña, caracter e historia se conjugan para ofrecer al visitante un sinfín de planes y propuestas de ocio y cultura.

JOB: Lectureship in the Mathematics of Data Science, The University of Edinburgh

Applications are invited for a lectureship in the Mathematics of Data Science. The University of Edinburgh and the School of Mathematics are partners in a consortium that will lead the UK’s Alan Turing Institute, a major initiative that will drive research and investment in the data science area in coming years. We seek an outstanding candidate with either an existing track record of high-quality research in an area which is related to data science, or strong evidence of high research potential. The post is open to all areas of data science, and in particular this strongly includes the area of Statistics. It is an exciting time at the University of Edinburgh which, as well as being a member of the Alan Turing Institute Joint Venture, has recently expanded its Statistics group with multiple appointments (including Ruth King to the Thomas Bayes Chair of Statistics). The successful applicant will be expected to carry out independent research and to contribute to the teaching of undergraduate and postgraduate courses.  Sigue leyendo

Postdoctoral Associate in Bayesian Data Science

This position is focused on development and application of methods for the analysis of high-dimensional data, with an emphasis on scalable Bayesian methods.  The fellow will work under the direction of Professor David Dunson in the Department of Statistical Science at Duke University.  Methods will be motivated by a variety of applications with a particular emphasis on neurosciences, including relating brain networks to behavior, abilities and neuropsychiatric diseases.  The overarching emphasis is on developing transformative probabilistic models and computational algorithms, which change routine practice in analyzing data sets in the motivating applications, lead to new biological insights, have theoretical guarantees, and can be applied in broad high dimensional low sample size applications.   Sigue leyendo

Postdoctoral Fellow in Statistical Genetics

Applications are invited for Postdoctoral Researchers to join Xiang Zhou’s research group in the Department of Biostatistics at the University of Michigan. Research in the Zhou lab focuses on the development of statistical methods and computational tools for the analysis of large-scale and high-dimensional biological data from genetic association studies and functional genomic sequencing studies. Recent work includes: Bayesian hierarchical models to quantify genome-wide inheritance, Bayesian sparse regression models for risk/phenotype prediction, mixed effects models to control for population stratification, multivariate models to jointly analyze multiple correlated phenotypes, and QTL mapping and allelic specific expression analysis.
