---------------------------------------------------------------------

      UNIVERSITY OF NOTTINGHAM AND UNIVERSITY OF LANCASTER
      ----------------------------------------------------

  POST-GRAD. RESEARCH STUDENTSHIP and POST-DOC. RESEARCH ASSISTANT
  ----------------------------------------------------------------


We are seeking individuals to fill the two above-named posts for
the following EPSRC-funded project. Both posts are funded for 3
years, and are available from 1st Oct 1999 or from a suitable later
date.


== MARKOV CHAIN MONTE CARLO METHODS FOR STOCHASTIC EPIDEMIC MODELS ==

Summary: This project aims to develop and apply efficient Markov
Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) algorithms for performing Bayesian inference
for stochastic epidemic models. The project brings together a
number of topics such as: developing new MCMC algorithms based
on recent theoretical advances; performing Bayesian analyses for
infectious disease data; developing and analysing stochastic
epidemic models.


Post-graduate Research Studentship
==================================

The Research Studentship, expected to result in a PhD, is based in
the Division of Statistics in the School of Mathematical Sciences
at the University of Nottingham. The Division, which achieved a 4
rating in the last Research Assessment Exercise, is currently enjoying
a period of expansion, with four recent staff appointments creating a
total of 9 academic staff. There are also currently 8 research
students and research staff. The Student would join an
internationally-recognized research group in Stochastic Epidemic
Models. The Studentship project will be mostly (but not exclusively)
concerned with models for the spread of epidemics among groups of
households, and applying the models to real data.

Applicants for the Studentship should have, or will shortly obtain, a
first or good upper second degree or Masters in Mathematics or
Statistics.


Post-doctoral Research Assistant
================================

The Post-doctoral Research Assistant would be based in the Statistics
Group in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University
of Lancaster. The Statistics Group includes 12 academic staff and
25 research students and research associates, and achieved Grade 5
rating in each of the last two Research Assessment Exercises.
The RA would be concerned with the development and implementation of
state-of-the-art MCMC methods, particularly with a view to application
to single-outbreak epidemic models and network epidemic models.

Applicants for the Post-Doctoral RA should have, or will
shortly obtain, a PhD in Statistics or Applied Probability.


Project Team
============

The two principal investigators are Dr. Philip O'Neill (Nottingham)
and Prof. Gareth Roberts (Lancaster). In addition, Prof. Niels Becker
(ANU, Australia) is acting in an advisory capacity. The project team
will have regular meetings in both Nottingham and Lancaster, and it
is anticipated that there will also be opportunities to visit Prof.
Becker in Canberra. Funds are also available for conference
attendance.


Enquiries
=========

The positions will be advertised formally within a few weeks.
Until then informal enquiries regarding either position should
be made to

Dr. Philip D. O'Neill (Currently at The University of Liverpool)
