Applications are invited for Project Post-Doctoral Fellow (Mathematics and Statistics) Under SERB Funded Project at IIT Kanpur for the year 2021. The last date of application is 16 November.
Applications are invited for a position of Project Post-Doctoral Fellow the project entitled, “Estimating high-dimensional covariance matrices in Markov chain Monte Carlo”, funded by the SERB, DST.
About the Project
The project focuses on constructing Monte Carlo algorithms for high-dimensional target distributions. Particularly, the estimation of large dimensional covariance matrices is of interest. Much of the project will require familiarity with Markov chain Monte Carlo, Bayesian models, and computational algorithms.
The post-doctoral fellow (PDF) will be working closely with the Principal Investigator in developing algorithms for sampling from high-dimensional target distributions.
