Postdoctoral fellowship (2 years) in Mathematical Statistics

Umeå University | Umeå, Sweden

Classification: Mathematical Statistics

The Department of Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics is offering a postdoctoral scholarship within the project “Advanced functional clustering methods for analyzing complex winter climate data from Scandinavia”. The scholarship is full-time for two years, with access on 1 May 2024 or by agreement. Project description The project focuses on developing innovative statistical functional clustering methods, with special emphasis on being suitable for the challenging types of complex functional data objects that annually laminated (varved) lake sediment and annual tree rings (densities) constitute, with respect to climate reconstruction. The methods should be able to jointly handle the clustering of dependent misaligned functions together with auxiliary information. The appointed candidate will get the opportunity to carry out collaborative research according to a mutually agreed research plan. They will also be given the opportunity to present their research at international conferences and to participate actively in joint workshops and seminars. This postdoctoral scholarship is financed and administered by The Kempe Foundation (JCSMK23-0230). The stipend is tax-free and will be 700 000 SEK for two years, meaning 350 000 SEK per year. Umeå offers excellent working and living conditions. The city is young and located right next to a large river. It is surrounded by forests and lakes and lies close by the sea. In the vicinity there are plenty of opportunities for both indoor and outdoor activities. For further information and instructions on how to apply, see:
