Applications are invited for a full-time 3-year Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Causal Inference and/or Causal Machine Learning motivated by Health Applications. The project is part of a wider collaboration with Novo Nordisk and the University of Manchester within a network of researchers that includes UC Berkeley and Copenhagen. The postholder will research novel statistical and machine learning methodologies that have the potential to improve causal inference and prediction in large scale systems, with a particular emphasis towards understanding the co-occurrence of diseases within individuals.
You will develop research questions and conduct individual research, utilising access to detailed real-world quantitative data from a variety of sources to motivate new methodologies. You will develop and implement novel scalable methods for causal inference and learning, and regularly write research articles and publish outcomes of research in relevant high-profile international journals and conferences. There is significant funding to support attendance at international conferences and travel visits across the research network mentioned above. You will provide guidance to junior members of the research group including PhD students. You will act as a source of information and advice to other members of the group on methodologies or procedures and represent the research group at conferences, external meetings, and seminars.
We are seeking an exceptional candidate who holds (or is close to completing) a PhD in Statistics, Machine Learning, or a related field, together with relevant experience in probabilistic models and/or causal inference. You will possess sufficient specialist knowledge in scalable probabilistic models and can manage your own academic research and associated activities. Previous experience of contributing to publications and presentations is essential.
This post is fixed-term up to three years, in the first instance.
Only applications received before 12.00 midday on 25 June 2021 will be considered. Interviews will be held on 7 July 2021.
