The Alan Turing Institute is the UK’s national institute for data science and artificial intelligence. The Institute is named in honour of the scientist Alan Turing and its mission is to make great leaps in data science and artificial intelligence research in order to change the world for the better.
Learning causality and dynamics in interconnected systems
This work package focuses on developing new theory, methods, tools, and practices for understanding causality and dynamics in complex interconnected systems under conditions of uncertainty. A crucial part of this package is discovering ways to allow for feedback that is able to adapt and update as new data arrives. We aim to develop rigorous new statistical theory as well as computational methodology that allows for the incorporation of physical, economic, and biological principles into machine learning algorithms.
We are looking to recruit two Post Doctoral Research Associates to work collaboratively: a Statistics PDRA, who will work on developing rigorous new statistical theory; and a Machine Learning PDRA, who will work on developing computational methodology that allows incorporation of physical, economic or biological principles (or prior knowledge) into machine learning algorithms and/or distilling such principles directly from data.
Duties and Responsibilities
If appointed at a Senior PDRA level, the post-holder will have additional responsibilities, such as:
