The Korteweg-de Vries Institute for Mathematics (KdVI) at the University of Amsterdam (UvA) is inviting applications for a full professor in Mathematical Statistics.
The KdVI statistics group covers a variety of topics in statistics. This ranges from theoretical work on the performance and design of procedures in high-dimensional, or nonparametric models, to more applied work in areas such as forensic statistics or climate science. The statistics group operates within the stochastics programme, which coordinates the Grativation Programme NETWORKS, and in which topics such as probability theory, stochastic analysis, mathematical finance and queuing theory are covered.
Within the Faculty of Science there are interesting related research groups. In particular in the area of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning there are closely related activities within the Institute Logic, Language and Computation (ILLC) and within the Informatics Institute (IvI). An interesting development is the recent launching of the Innovation Center for Artificial Intelligence (ICAI), which promotes public-private partnerships in the general area of AI.
We are seeking a full professor in Statistics whose research connects to the emerging fields of machine learning and artificial intelligence and their application. You will actively engage in collaboration with other research groups within the faculty of science focussing on these themes. In the near future the KdVI statistics group will have one or more open positions at associate / assistant professor level that will strengthen the research focus. Your research vision will be an important aspect for the hiring process.
Many important activities in mathematical statistics are organised on a national level in The Netherlands. We are actively involved in these national efforts, for instance through the national research cluster STAR, one of the four mathematics clusters funded by the national science foundation NWO, and various national seminar series such as the Van Dantzig seminar, The Bayes Club and the Thematic Seminar. We also contribute to the national programme Mastermath by offering courses on statistics on a master and PhD level.
