Apologies if you have received more than one copy: this advert
is being cross-posted to several news-groups !

As C.A. Gilligan is away from Cambridge in the next week or so, please
contact me asap (A. Kleczkowski, ak133@cus.cam.ac.uk) if interested.

POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH ASSISTANT

STATISTICIAN, APPLIED MATHEMATICIAN, PHYSICIST

DEPARTMENT OF PLANT SCIENCES STATISTICS DEPARTMENT
UNIVERSITY OF CAMBRIDGE ROTHAMSTED EXPERIMENTAL STATION


A three year post (Salary scale RA1A) is available for a BBSRC-funded
project on:

ESTIMATION OF PARAMETERS IN NONLINEAR MODELS OF ECOLOGICAL PROCESSES

SUMMARY ***********************************************************

A statistician, applied mathematician or physicist is required to work
on the interface between mathematical modelling and problems of
statistical estimation in ecological population dynamics. The work will
concentrate on maximum likelihood estimation of parameters of nonlinear
ode, pde and matrix models using a range of modern techniques. The post
offers the opportunity to collaborate in a strategically important area
of statistics that will help to link ecological and environmental
experimentation with mathematical modelling.

QUALIFICATIONS ****************************************************

The post would ideally suit a statistician with experience in maximum
likelihood estimation or an applied mathematician or physicist with
experience in nonlinear modelling but others with qualifications in
other areas of statistics and modelling are encouraged to apply.
Willingness to use recent advances in maximum-likelihood estimation is
essential. A Ph.D. is desirable but applications from candidates with an
M.Sc in an appropriate discipline will also be considered.

LOCATION **********************************************************

The position will be based in Cambridge, within a group working on
theoretical and experimental aspects of plant, animal and microbial
populations. The Research Assistant will also work in the Statistics
Department at Rothamsted Experimental Station (about 60 mins drive
away). A valid driving licence is therefore essential. The project will
be jointly supervised by Dr C.A. Gilligan, a mathematical biologist, and
Mr G.J.S. Ross, statistician, and developer of the maximum likelihood
package (MLP) for the estimation of parameters of a broad class of
nonlinear models.

APPLICATION ******************************************************

Applications, including a Curriculum Vitae and the names of two referees
should be sent to:

Dr C.A. Gilligan, Department of Plant Sciences, University of Cambridge,
Downing Street, Cambridge, CB2 3EA, by 2 JULY 1996 from whom further
details may be obtained.
