From time to time vacancies arise within the department. Posts will be advertised on this page as and when they arise.

Research Associate in Statistical Signal Processing for Multivariate Time Series

The growing number and variety of low-carbon green technologies poses new and interesting challenges for the modern, smart power grid. This project, funded jointly by the EPSRC and Innovate UK, will draw upon advanced statistical signal processing ideas to develop key underlying methodology for a smart sensor, event monitoring, system. In collaboration with market-leading commercial partners including Intel and the University of Bath, this work will contribute directly towards a novel, marketable, product.

Candidates should hold or be close to submitting a PhD (or equivalent qualification) in Statistics, or a closely related field. It is essential that the successful candidate has a strong background and publication record in either statistical signal processing, multivariate time series analysis, or machine learning for longitudinal data, along with very strong programming skills in Matlab, R, Python, or C/C++.

The post is available from 1 May 2015 (or as soon as possible thereafter) and is funded for 2 years in the first instance. It offers the opportunity for an ambitious RA to straddle both academia and industry, develop and publish new methodology, as well as produce algorithms that will run in real-world products.

Closing date: 3 May 2015
