postdoctoral position on the Malaria Atlas Project, Oxford
The Malaria Atlas Project is opening a postdoctoral position in Oxford in geospatial modelling toward collaborating with other scientists to develop probabilistic maps of malaria risk at national and sub-national level to evaluate the efficacy of past intervention strategies and to assist with the planning of future interventions. An understanding of spatiotemporal modelling and expertise in geostatistics, random-field models, or equivalent are essential. An understanding of the epidemiology of a vector-borne disease such as malaria is desirable but not essential. You must have a PhD or equivalent experience in mathematics, statistics, biostatistics, or a similar quantitative discipline. You will contribute to and, as appropriate, lead in the preparation of scientific reports and journal articles for publication of research findings from this work in open access journals. Travel to collaborators in Europe, the United States, Africa, and Asia will be part of the role. This full-time position is fixed-term until 31 December 2019 in the first instance. The closing date for this position will be 12.00 noon on Wednesday 17 October 2018.

job opportunity using R-INLA at Univ Bristol
Research Associate/Senior Research Associate in Sea Level Research, University of Bristol Job number ACAD103548 Division/School School of Geographical Sciences Contract type Open Ended Working pattern Full time Salary £32,548 - £36,613 per annum on Grade I or £36,613 - £41,212 per annum on Grade J Closing date for applications 08-Oct-2018 This position is part of a five-year European Research Council grant (GlobalMass, www.globalmass.eu) including four other positions, which together tackle the challenge of assessing and predicting sea level rise, globally. A better understanding of sea level rise is crucial in the context of climate change, as millions of people live in parts of the world that are threatened by future coastal flooding. This position is responsible for the statistical framework that combines a wide range of data sets, including both ground-based and satellite, and simulations from physical models, into sea level rise assessments.  Applicants need to be familiar with modern practice in large-scale spatial statistics such as the SPDE approach to Gaussian Markov Random Fields, or the Integrated Nested Laplace Approximation approach, implemented in R.   The University of Bristol has world-class expertise in both sea level research and computational statistics.  This position is a unique opportunity for an early career statistician to develop theory and practice at the cutting edge of modern statistics, and to contribute to a complex but crucial scientific question.   Interviews are likely to be held at the end of October, and the expected start date is January 2019. Informal enquires are welcome.   Contacts:  Professor Jonathan Bamber E-mail: j.bamber@bristol.ac.uk Tel: +44 (0)117 331 4129   Professor Jonathan Rougier E-mail: j.c.rougier@bristol.ac.uk Tel: +44 (0)117 928 7782   The closing date for applications is 23.59 on 08 October 2018.
