More information can be found at:

Whom are we looking for exactly? We are looking for researchers who have completed their Ph.D. in the past four years, or will complete their Ph.D. soon, who have an ambition to do research on the application of time series models to real data, including the development of novel statistical models and the associated computation. Your tasks:

- Develop time-series based models for applications in biostatistics, such as brain imaging

- Develop novel computational (Markov chain based) sampling methodologies for the application of the afore-mentioned models

- Application of the models and methods via code. This includes implementation possibly using parallel computing.

- Work with students and junior researchers

- Write research papers and present research results at conferences Why join us?
