Two positions are available in Oslo, Norway:

1. A PhD research fellowship in statistics is available at the Department of Mathematics of the University of Oslo, Norway.

This PhD project is part of our research activities in model-based big data studies. Rather than being merely data driven, we want to investigate approaches that in addition exploit statistical models which describe dynamics, mechanisms and structures of the underlying processes. In this way we answer detailed and sophisticated questions about complex systems. The case we will work on is the modelling and prediction of viral marketing on a network of users: we want to predict if a product will go viral in the market, spreading quickly through the network. In this Phd project we will investigate the use of sophisticated stochastic models and Bayesian inference to understand and predict individual behavior and information flow on a network.

Deadline: 20.03.2018. More details here.

2. A Postdoctoral Research Fellow in statistics is available at the Department of Mathematics at the University of Oslo, Norway

The position will focus on sensor data and autonomous ships, in collaboration with our industrial partners ABB and DNV-GL. The project is targeted to develop multi-sensor, multi-scale statistical methods for condition and performance monitoring in real time, including anomaly prediction, change point detection and prediction, with uncertainty quantification.

Deadline: 02.04.2018. More details here.
