Successful candidates will conduct research in the area of graphical models, algebraic statistics, and/or causality with Liam Solus and other members of the mathematics department at KTH. Of particular interest are questions related to causal inference, model selection and underlying algebraic, geometric, and combinatorial structure.
The position is a time-limited, full-time, one year position (with the possibility of extension) starting August 2021 or at an agreed upon date (either earlier or later). The successful applicant will be a member of the new Department of Mathematics for Data and AI at KTH, a quickly growing group working in the mathematical foundations of AI and data science. The position includes generous travel support, and it is financed through the Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program (WASP).
