Appointment for a Marie Curie Experienced Researcher (Approximately 17
months) at the University of Cyprus.
Salary: Approximately 4500 Euro salary per month
Applications are invited for a Marie Curie Experienced Researcher
fellowship (Around to 17 months) at the University of Cyprus. The
candidate should have a PhD and no more than 10 years of research
experience after the MSc. In addition the candidates must not have
lived in Cyprus more than a year during the last four years.
Applicants must have expertise in computational statistics,
optimization and numerical methods which are supported by publications
in the areas of model selection, robust procedures, numerical
estimation, and parallel computing.
The project aims to extend recent research in the development of
computational strategies for tackling large-scale statistical model
selection and estimation problems. The various aspects of the
o Development of numerically efficient methods for estimating
o Development of computationally efficient strategies for solving
statistical model selection and other combinatorial problems in
o The computational efficient solution of the various matrix
problems arising in the estimation methods.
o Parallelization of the algorithms.
Research is expected to be pursued in most of the four areas listed
above. The working language is English.
The DEADLINE for applications for this positions is the 15th of
February 2009, or until the position is filled. The successful
