[beasiswa] [info] PhD positions in EURANDOM NL

PhD researcher for the project 
“Analysis of the behavior of extremes under non-stationary climate conditions”

The PhD researcher is going to work at the Department Climate and Seismology, within the Climate for Knowledge Research Program. The research is a joint project of the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI) and EURANDOM.

General information
KNMI is the Dutch national centre for data and knowledge on weather, climate and seismology. KNMI performs scientific research at a recognized high international level. One of the central themes is climate change. KNMI constructs climate scenarios of future climate which are used by society to adapt to possible climate changes. KNMI uses observations, complex numerical climate models and scientific knowledge for that purpose
EURANDOM is the European Research Institute for the study of random phenomena. Research at EURANDOM covers stochastics and its applications, as well as its interfaces with other disciplines. Stochastics consists of statistics, probability theory, and stochastic operations research. The core business of EURANDOM is fundamental research in an international environment, carried out by a non-tenured staff of junior researchers and senior advisors supplemented with an extensive programme of seminars, workshops, and visitors.
 

Job description
Many applications demand knowledge of extreme values in climate. Most infrastructure is (still) designed assuming that our climate is stationary. However, series of measurements show that our climate has changed during the past decades and climate models show that these changes will continue in the future, among others due to human influence on climate. The main question in the research project will be: “How can we optimally account for climate change when the probability of extreme events is to be determined”? This “probability of extremes” is an important parameter for the design of infrastructure. The PhD researcher will contribute to statistical modeling and analysis of extreme values in observations and in projections with regional climate models, with an emphasis on extremes in precipitation and temperature. We expect the candidate to make optimal use of the unique collaboration between KNMI and EURANDOM in order to link actual knowledge in the area of climate and statistics and further develop it. For this reason the candidate will get two workplaces, one in De Bilt and one in Eindhoven

Qualifications

  • having a Master degree in science or engineering

  • broad knowledge of mathematical statistics, proved by graduation subject or relevant working experience

  • experience with statistical packages like R or comparable programming languages

  • thorough knowledge of the English language for technical and science purposes

  • interest in climate and climate change

  • entrepreneurial

Salary
first year max € 2.042 gross per month 
second year max. € 2.379 gross per month 
third year max. € 2.222,13 gross per month
fourth year max. € 2.571,64 gross per month.

Postdoctoral researcher for STW-project E-coagulation
 

EURANDOM has a vacancy for a postdoctoral researcher in Statistics who will participate in the STW project E-coagulation.

This project will be done in collaboration with the Leiden University Medical Centre, the Utrecht University Medical Centre, the University of Amsterdam, the VU University Amsterdam and Philips Research Eindhoven (Dpt. of Molecular Diagnostics). The focus of the EURANDOM part of this research project is on parameter estimation for large systems of differential equations. Appropriate parametric and semiparametric statistical techniques have to be developed. The research at EURANDOM will be done under the guidance of professors de Gunst (VU) and Klaassen (UvA).

EURANDOM is the European Research Institute for the study of random phenomena. Research at EURANDOM covers stochastics and its applications, as well as its interfaces with other disciplines. Stochastics consists of statistics, probability theory, and stochastic operations research. The core business of EURANDOM is fundamental research in an international environment, carried out by a non-tenured staff of junior researchers and senior advisors supplemented with an extensive programme of seminars, workshops, and visitors.

Research at EURANDOM is clustered into thematically organized research programmes:

  •  Multivariate Risk Modelling

  • Queueing and Performance Analysis

  •  Random Spatial Structures

  •  Statistical Information and Modelling: Statistical Signal and Image Analysis; Statistics in Biology.

At present the junior staff consists of 25-30 internationally recruited post-doctoral researchers and graduate students under the guidance of senior advisors. EURANDOM is part of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, TU/e.

Postdoctoral appointments are typically for two years.

Candidates with a mathematical background and who have a particularly strong background in Statistics, are invited to send a letter of application together with a curriculum vitae with full educational details to EURANDOM. A list of publications, an (electronic) pre-print of a selected paper, and names and contact details of three academic referees should also be included. The complete package should be sent to:

Prof.dr.ir. O.J. Boxma
Scientific Director EURANDOM
P.O. Box 513, 5600 MB Eindhoven, The Netherlands

For further information about the project you may contact Prof. C.A.J. Klaassen (c.a.j.klaassen@uva.nl) or Prof. M.C.M. de Gunst (degunst@cs.vu.nl).
