The Department of Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics at Umeå University is opening a postdoctoral position in mathematical statistics, within the programme Wallenberg AI, Autonomous systems and software program (WASP), with an emphasis on statistical learning with sparsity.

The successful candidate is encouraged to develop their own research agenda, in close collaboration with mentors and colleagues. Potential areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

+ Learning with multiple structures (such as sparsity and rank constraints)

+ Intelligent data sampling and uncertainty quantification in medical imaging

+ Time-data trade-offs in learning

+ Statistical learning with generative adversarial networks and their geometry

+ Streaming and distributed algorithms for dimensionality reduction (such as sparse principal component analysis)

+ Defence against adversarial examples in deep neural nets.

The appointment is for two years at the Department of Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics. Starting date is fall 2019 or as otherwise agreed.
