Research Associate on Principled Foundations for Probabilistic Programming

Applications for this vacancy closed on 2 April 2020 at 12:00PM
THIS VACANCY IS FOR INTERNAL APPLICATIONS ONLY



A full-time postdoctoral researcher post, fixed-term for 10 months, reporting
to Sam Staton, is available to investigate foundational aspects of the theory
of probabilistic programming.



The appointee will develop foundational aspects of the theory of probabilistic
programming, for example, developing category theoretic foundations for
synthetic measure theory, using tools such as s-finite kernels and quasi-Borel
spaces. The exact scope of the research will depend on the skills and
experience of the successful candidate.



Candidates should have a PhD (or be very near completion) in computer science
or mathematics with a strong background in category theory and measure theory,
evidenced by published papers that substantially use these methods.



The primary selection criteria include the abilities to conduct and complete
research projects (as witnessed by peer-reviewed publications), and contribute
ideas for new research projects; and writing skills.



We would particularly welcome applications from women and black and minority
ethnic applicants who are currently under-represented within the Computer
Science Department.



The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 2 April 2020.



Our staff and students come from all over the world and we proudly promote a
friendly and inclusive culture. Diversity is positively encouraged, through
diversity groups and champions, for example www.cs.ox.ac.uk/aboutus/women-cs-
oxford/index.html, as well as a number of family-friendly policies, such as
the right to apply for flexible working and support for staff returning from
periods of extended absence, for example maternity leave.
