Applications are sought for a 2-year postdoctoral position (with possible 
extension) to work on large scale data assimilation problems using nonlinear 
Bayesian filtering. The position is part of a joint research project between 
Prof. Ibrahim Hoteit at the Applied Math and Computational Science program at 
King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), and Drs Chris 
Farmer and Irene Moroz at the Oxford Centre for Collaborative Applied 
Mathematics (OCCAM) at the University of Oxford. The postdoc is expected to 
spend about 75% of her/his time at KAUST and 25% at OCCAM, but this can be 

The postdoc will work with already established teams in data assimilation on 
proposing and implementing new nonlinear Bayesian filtering methodologies for 
large scale estimation and management of uncertainties problems

Qualified applicants should possess a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics and 
Computational sciences, or a closely related field. We are looking for 
candidates with experience in reservoir modeling and/or ensemble and nonlinear 
Kalman filtering. Familiarity with scientific programming in Fortran and 
Matlab, high performance computing, and with good publishing record will be 
given preference.

The compensation package includes a competitive salary; housing at KAUST and 
Oxford; health care (medical and dental); and 4 weeks annual vacation. Travel 
expenses between KAUST and Oxford will be also covered.

To apply, please send a curriculum vitae and a letter of interest with the 
names and contact information of at least two references to Dr. Ibrahim
