We are currently advertising for (EPSRC funded) PhD places at Brunel University.
I’m looking for someone who has some experience (preferably a masters degree) in statistics or a related field, and is interested in applying this knowledge to network science:
The successful applicants will join the internationally recognised researchers in the Department of Mathematics. This exciting research project is focused on extending statistical theory, algorithms and tools to allow experimental design on a connected world. Design of Experiments (DOE) is a statistical field that allows scientists to maximise information derived from experiments, making stronger conclusions and/or reducing the cost of doing science. This project applies DOE to Network Science, and answers fundamental questions about how we measure and make conclusions when links between experiments are complex. It extends precious work by the supervisor, e.g. http://bura.brunel.ac.uk/handle/2438/19995
