One PhD Student Position, SimTech Cluster of Excellence, University of Stuttgart

PhD Position “Bayesian Distributional Latent-Variable-Models”

The Cluster of Excellence “Data-Integrated Simulation Science” (EXC 2075) is an interdisciplinary research center with more than 200 scientists of different ages, gender identities, nationalities and different subject areas, jointly performing research towards a common goal: We target a new class of modeling and computational methods based on available data from various sources, in order to take the usability, precision and reliability of simulations to a new level.

Your tasks:
• Development of statistical methods to fit Bayesian distributional latent-variable models
• Execution of extensive simulations to evaluate the newly developed methods and compare them to competing approaches
• Development of software to implement the new methods in open-source programming languages such as most notably extensions of the R package brms
• Close cooperation with other scientists within the research group and at the Cluster of Excellence SimTech
• Publication of research results in international scientific journals and conference proceedings
• Active participation at national and international conferences
