Job no: 522175
Work type: Post Doc Associate
Location: Main Campus (Gainesville, FL)
Categories: Research/Scientific/Grants
Department:16480100 - LS-STATISTICS-GENERAL

Classification Title:

Post-Doctoral Associate

Job Description:

A Post-doctoral Associate position is available in statistics to work on a project on methods of causal inference led by Dr. Joseph Antonelli in the Department of Statistics. The position will begin on August 16, 2022.

The successful candidate is expected to conduct research on causal inference. The position will be primarily supervised by Dr. Joseph Antonelli, with a focus on methods for causal inference, though other statistical areas, such as Bayesian nonparametrics and high-dimensional modeling are also of interest. Methods development will be mostly motivated by problems in environmental health, in particular those relating to the health impacts of air pollution and associated regulatory actions. Collaboration with other faculty in the Department of Statistics will be encouraged.

This position will be initially awarded for one year, and, contingent upon strong performance and conduct and availability of funds, may be renewed for up to one year.

The Department of Statistics welcomes applicants who can contribute to a diverse and inclusive environment through their scholarship, teaching, mentoring, and professional service. Please see for more information about diversity and inclusion in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. The university and greater Gainesville communities enjoy a diversity of cultural events, restaurants, year-round outdoor recreational activities, and social opportunities.

Expected Salary:The salary is competitive and commensurate with qualifications and experience, and includes a full benefits package.

Minimum Requirements:

Ph.D. in Statistics, Biostatistics, or a related field.

Preferred Qualifications:

Experience in either causal inference or environmental statistics is encouraged, though not required.
