Working in the Centre for Multilevel Modelling, you will be a computational statistician/statistical programmer to join an interdisciplinary research team specialising in the production of statistical software that is used for the analysis of social data with complex structure to address important substantive research questions.
You will carry out research with Professor William Browne, Dr George Leckie and other colleagues both in Bristol and elsewhere as part of the quantitative research node in the ESRC’s Digital Social Research program. You will be employed as a research associate with skills in statistics and/or computing as part of a large team of researchers based in several universities. The project is producing a series of tools which will enhance the entire research process. These include a new piece of software, STAT-JR for fitting statistical models primarily by Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) methods. This software generates code to fit specific models given user input and you will have involvement in the development and testing of this software.
