The University of Wollongong Australia invites applications for the PhD Scholarship in Statistical / Machine Learning open to domestic and international students who are able to commence their PhD studies at the University of Wollongong in 2018.

An exciting PhD scholarship is available in the School of Mathematics and Applied Statistics (SMAS) at the University of Wollongong Australia in the area of spatio temporal modelling of environmental phenomena using techniques inspired from machine learning.

The successful applicant will explore the use of statistical deep-learning models for
environmental processes. Challenges unique to this application domain motivate the need for new mathematical and computational developments. Specifically, the candidate will mathematically develop deep-learning models that operate under physical constraints, and devise approximate Bayesian inference techniques that can deal with these complex models and large datasets. In particular, inference needs to be made from large datasets originating from satellite remote-sensing instruments, that may have different spatial footprints.
