The Research Fellow will be involved in research projects associated with the grant, under the direction of Prof Gael Martin and Dr David Frazier.

To be successful you will have a relevant doctoral qualification in econometrics or statistics (or equivalent relevant research experience) with specific expertise in one or more of the following areas: Bayesian statistical methods, including modern computational techniques; frequentist simulation-based inference; statistical theory; asymptotic analysis.

You will also possess sound interpersonal skills, along with excellent written and oral communication abilities.

If you believe you fit this profile, we look forward to receiving your application.
