We are seeking to support a talented and enthusiastic RA with experience in Bayesian statistical modelling or similar discipline to work pro-actively with a multi-university research consortium to learn new skills and bring state-of-the-art statistical modelling techniques to problems in data-centric engineering. You will conduct research with 2 main components:

  1. Using Bayesian hierarchical modelling to develop network scale performance models by integrating geotechnical numerical models of asset condition and deterioration with available network data.
  2. Using spatio-temporal modelling techniques to properly quantify and propagate uncertainty associated with missing data and future weather/climate.

You should have a PhD in Statistics, or a closely related discipline (awarded or nearing completion) with experience in computational Bayesian statistics, statistical modelling, and the production of high quality journal publications. Knowledge of hierarchical models, computer model emulation, and engineering applications is highly desirable.

You will be based in the School of Mathematics, Statistics and Physics, working on the EPSRC funded ACHILLES (Assessment, Costing and enHancement of long life Long Linear Assets) Programme.

The University holds a silver Athena SWAN award in recognition of our good employment practices for the advancement of gender equality.

This is a full time, fixed term post available for the duration of 24 months.
