Work will focus on developing Bayesian methods and statistical software for fitting sophisticated astrophysical models to complex data collected with high-tech instruments. This often involves a sequence of statistical analyses and methodological development will focus on properly accounting for errors and carrying uncertainty forward within such sequences of analyses, paying particular attention to assessment of model and systematic uncertainties. Particular applications will include analysing the morphology of extended astrophysical images, accounting for uncertainty in instrumental effects such as point spread functions, and accounting for classification errors when analysing populations of sources

Requirements:

You must hold a PhD (or equivalent) in Statistics, Biostatistics, Astrophysics, or closely related discipline. You will have research interests in a relevant area of statistical science. You will have a specialist knowledge of statistics, particularly in statistical computation, Bayesian method and/or astrostatistics or closely related areas, together with extensive experience in the development of statistical methods in a collaborative scientific setting
