(In addition the Department hopes to announce shortly a two year post doc
position in the area of computing for HSSS)



DEPARTMENT OF STATISTICS
University of Dublin, Trinity College

Applications are invited for the above post in the Department of Statistics
at Trinity College, Dublin. The appointment will be tenable for a period of
one
year, commencing on 1st October, 1999. The principal responsibilities of
the successful candidate will include both teaching duties and research at a
post-doctoral level in one of the following areas:

Data Mining: Current projects include (i) working with Dublin bus to
exploit the data routinely logged by the use of automatic ticket inspection
and (ii)
working on the Central Applications Office data base, which contains
details on second-level students applying for places in Irish third level
education.
Expertise in working with very large data sets and with modern clustering
techniques is desirable.

Spatial Aggregation and Correlation Analysis: The Modifiable Areal Unit
Problem is one name given to the apparent paradox observed when
conducting analysis on multivariate data associated with individuals and/or
small areas. The data may be aggregated spatially in a number of ways and
this can seriously impact the empirical cross-correlation structure. It is
proposed to use a model, built on spatially smooth latent variables, to
explain the
cross correlation at any structure. A number of technologies, including
MCMC, are being considered for the estimating the underlying latent
variables and
their spatial correlation structure. Expertise in working with spatial data
is important.

Deletion Diagnostics and EM: Recent research in linear models with
correlated data has successfully exploited the fact that case (or subset)
deletion
is often exactly equivalent to replacing the deleted data with the
conditional expected value of the associated random variables, give the
remaining data.
This is clearly very similar to the EM algorithm's method of handling
missing data. Expertise in the associated theoretical statistics is desirable.

Appointment will be made within the salary range 16,486-23,264 per annum
at a point to accord with qualifications and experience to date.

Application forms and further particulars may be obtained from:
