    UK: Research Fellow in Mathematics

    Research Fellow in Mathematics Ref 3077 School/department: School of Mathematical and Physical Sciences Hours: Full time Contract: Fixed term for three years (01 September 2018 to 31 August 2021) Reference: 3077 Salary: Starting at £32,548 and rising to £38,833 per annum Placed on: 11 April 2018 Closing date: 31 May 2018. Applications must be received by midnight of the closing date. Expected interview date: 14 June 2018 Expected start date: 01 September 2018 Job description Bayesian Inference and Approximations of High-Dimensional Network Models We seek to hire a highly motivated and talented Postdoctoral Research Fellow on a fixed term 3-year full-time position starting 1st of September 2018. This is a highly desirable position funded by the Leverhulme Trust research project grant (RPG-2017-370: Bayesian Inference and Approximations of High-Dimensional Network Models). The use of networks to model complex systems has revolutionised the way in which brains, epidemics, social interactions and more generally the flow of information are modelled. However, many of the resulting mathematical models suffer from high model dimensionality and therefore limited analytical tractability, sensitivity to incomplete information about the network, and inaccuracies due to simplifying assumptions or approximations. The aim of this research is to develop a new modelling paradigm that will tackle these challenges as well as offer several other major benefits. This paradigm relies on the specification of a new class of parametric models that are flexible enough to handle networks currently out of reach of state-of-the-art models. The inference of the parameters is formulated as Bayesian inverse problems, which in turn makes it possible to rigorously quantify the uncertainty introduced by simplifying assumptions and incomplete network data. This research will seek to harness a novel combination of techniques from stochastic analysis, partial differential equations (PDEs) and uncertainty quantification and could prove a step change in the ability of network science to deal with real-world applications. The Research Fellow will play a key role in the formulation and numerical solution of Bayesian inverse problems in the context of stochastic epidemics on networks. This will ultimately be used to infer networks and their structure from simulated or real outbreak data.
Furthermore, the post-holder will contribute to the development of rigorous uncertainty quantification for the estimated parameters, as well as for quantifying the uncertainty induced by simplifying assumptions such as closures. The post is part of a larger project funded by the Leverhulme Trust which involves a PhD Student and a Teaching Fellow. The post-holder will work closely with the principal investigator Prof Istvan Kiss and co-investigators Dr Masoumeh Dashti and Dr Luc Berthouze at University of Sussex and Prof Andrew Stuart at Caltech. The fellowship provides full support that includes salary (this will be set according to skills and abilities of successful candidate) and support for research activities. The successful candidate will benefit from interactions with leading applied mathematicians within the Department of Mathematics and research project collaborators in the UK and USA. The candidate will pursue independent research in a fast emerging field and will acquire advanced mathematical and computational techniques in areas such as Inverse Problems, Bayesian Inference, Uncertainty Quantification and numerical methods for stochastic processes on networks. Enquiries: All enquiries should be directed to Prof Istvan Kiss (i.z.kiss@sussex.ac.uk) and Dr Masoumeh Dashti (M.Dashti@sussex.ac.uk) The School of Mathematical and Physical Sciences is committed to equality and valuing diversity, and currently holds an Athena SWAN Bronze Award.

  7. Andrija Martinovic looked skyward and screamed. The Bozeman senior’s bellow echoed across Montana State’s Bobcat-Anderson Tennis Complex on Thursday afternoon after his overhead smash slammed into the net. Martinovic, who was competing in the Southern AA Divisional semifinal with partner Jackson Pedersen, knew he had squandered an opportunity to break Helena’s serve to begin the second set. Frustration simmered. Moments later, however, the Serbian smirked after delivering one of his many impressive hits during the straight-sets victory. He was playing forward when a return bounded off the top of the net and over his left shoulder. Martinovic twisted, lunged backward and swatted a cross-court, backhand winner. He collected himself after the point and he and Pedersen cruised to a 6-0 victory after dropping three games in the first set. They will play in the final this morning. A pair that’s only been playing together for three weeks quickly has ascended by virtue of their individual skills. Their on-court chemistry, though, may lift them to a state title. “We have fun on the court,” said Pedersen, who was often animated after Martinovic delivered booming forehand winners or aces. “Both of us have (anger) issues, but once we get past that, then we’re good.” Martinovic preferred a bigger declaration. “I don’t want to be cocky, but I think we’re the best team in the whole state,” the exchange student said. “We can win the state, easily.” It’s hard to dispute his claim when he and Pedersen both possess dominant serves, powerful ground strokes and are exceptional athletes. Martinovic, who lived in Indiana last semester, said he’s been playing tennis since he was 4 in addition to playing soccer. He’s also a mixed martial artist and surfer. Pedersen won the state doubles titles last year with Logan Derby and qualified in singles two years ago as a sophomore. “They have all the shots they need to do well and go forward,” Hawks assistant coach Bo Bullock said. “The biggest thing is just communication and finding that chemistry because they haven’t played much, and that’s the only thing holding them back a little bit.” Martinovic’s confidence is something not normally seen among Bozeman’s better athletes, who typically remain humble and quiet. The bravado is a refreshing change, Pedersen said. “It’s something new and I think we needed it,” he added. “It lightens up the team and he’s funny; we crack jokes all the time. When we do, that’s when we’re at our best, when we keep it loose.” Added Bullock, “Confidence is a good thing. Once you get to this part of the season, everybody’s so tight and so much is riding on it, it’s hard for them to let go and play loose and be confident; the nerves get in the way. It’s nice to see people play with confidence and believe in themselves in that way.” Martinovic and Pedersen have already qualified for state because of their finals appearance, and two other Hawks pairs hope to join them. Johnny Kamp and Hudson Hart won their opener, 6-0, 6-0, before falling in the quarterfinals. They logged a 6-3, 6-2 victory in the consolation bracket and need two more wins to advance to the third-place match and clinch a state berth. Levi Collins and Tal Rogers cruised into the semifinals, where they played the longest match of the day. They won the first set, 6-3, but then dropped the second and third in tiebreakers, 7-6 (3) and 7-6 (2). “They should not feel bad about that match at all,” said Bullock, whose pupils need just one win today to advance to next week. “It could’ve gone either way and they still have a lot of tennis to play tomorrow.” Laurel Ward and Annika Linkenbach highlighted the girls effort with three straight-sets wins. They dominated their semifinal with a 6-4, 6-1 triumph. “I think they executed really well setting each other up and playing as a team,” assistant Jamie Booth said. “They put a lot of expectations on themselves so some of it is battling themselves and their opponents, and they did a really good job keeping their composure.” They will play defending state champions Bridget and Fiona Powers of Helena Capital in the final. Sasha Hathaway and Victoria Peterson plus Bree Luther and Rosie Mokwa are still competing in consolation. “Overall, the team played exceptional against some stiff competition,” Booth said. “Everybody came to play and left everything they could on the court.” https://www.bozemandailychronicle.com/sports/prep/tennis/serbian-exchange-student-sparks-hawks-boys/article_9c9b3563-e715-5f5e-b742-efb63186d0f2.html

Call for Applications: Religious Freedom Research Project Graduate Summer Research Fellowship The Religious Freedom Research Project (RFRP) at Georgetown University’s Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs—made possible through the support of its strategic partner, Baylor University’s Institute for Studies of Religion—is offering summer Ph.D. dissertation fellowships for students exploring the sources, development, and impact of religious freedom in history and the present day. The fellowships are funded through generous support from the William E. Simon Foundation and the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation. We seek proposals for dissertations that explore the relationship between religious liberty and the global common good; the importance of religious freedom for democracy, social and economic development, or countering violent religious extremism; the religious freedom of groups and institutions; and/or the relationship between institutional religious freedom and the common good of Western and non-Western societies in history and today. Successful proposals will root the study of religious freedom in particular academic disciplines in order to generate new knowledge about the importance of religious liberty (or its absence) to the global common good; the promotion of economic development, political freedom, and a robust and dynamic civil society; and/or the elimination, prevention, moderation, or mitigation of religiously-driven extremism and violence. The Nature of the Awards Four (4) dissertation research/completion fellowships will be awarded for the summer of 2018 (June 1-August 31). Awards will amount up to $5,000. Awarded funds may be used for travel, research, and living expenses. Fellowship winners will be required to submit a paper detailing research findings, which the RFRP may publish online and in project publications. Additionally, winners may be asked to share their work at an RFRP-sponsored event after the award period. Eligibility, Terms, and Conditions This fellowship is offered to Ph.D. candidates from any college or university. The fellowship is not limited to any single academic discipline or department. Accordingly, candidates from departments across the humanities and social sciences may apply. Guidelines for the research and completion fellowships are below.
