MS/PhD w/ Valle Lab: development and application of novel Bayesian models

Denis Valle (University of Florida) asked me to pass along that he currently has an opening for a MS/PhD student focused on the development and application of novel Bayesian models in ecology.

Dr. Valle is affiliated with the Tropical Conservation and Development program (http://www.tcd.ufl.edu/) and the Emerging Pathogens Institute (http://www.epi.ufl.edu/) at UF. Research in Dr. Valle’s group focuses on tackling important applied problems in environmental sciences and malaria epidemiology by creating and using innovative Bayesian statistical models. Examples of ongoing research projects can be found at http://denisvalle.weebly.com. Given the wide range of problems tackled by this group, there is considerable flexibility regarding the specific scientific application. Nevertheless, this position will involve the development and application of novel Bayesian models and interactive tools to aid decision-making.  Interested parties should contact drvalle@ufl.edu, application deadline is Jan. 30th, 2019
