Associated Researcher in Applied Statistics

Three partners, l’Institut IRAMAT - CRPAA in Bordeaux, the Laboratoire de mathématiques Jean Leray in Nantes and the Laboratoire Geosciences in Rennes, involved in Chronomodel project (ANR 2011-2015) developed an original software, named chronomodel, which is dedicated to the chronological modeling with a Bayesian statistical approach. This software provides support for the development of chronological scenarios from a large number of data involving time, using models more or less complex (via the stratigraphy, the phasing, the correlation data, the calibration functions,…).
The associated researcher should develop, with the chronomodel software, Bayesian statistical methods and tools for data processing involving time in the Archeology, Archaeometry and Earth Sciences areas.
In particular, the associated researcher will be responsible to:
• Develop new tools for statistical Bayesian chronological modeling;
• Integrate additional modules to the chronomodel software;
• Develop an interface between the R software and chronomodel software;
• Conduct statistical studies asked by laboratories or local government;
• Assist the users of chronomodel software.
During the appointment, the associated researcher could have the opportunity to participate in other projects of Lebesgue Center on applied Statistics. The successful candidate will be placed under the scientific responsibility of Anne Philippe, Professor in Mathematics at the Laboratoire de Mathématiques Jean Leray.
