Join us as a postdoctoral fellow in Professor Susan Murphy’s Statistical Reinforcement Learning Group. Our research concerns sequential decision making in mobile health, including experimental design and reinforcement learning algorithms. We combine statistical methods with algorithms from reinforcement learning so as to provide inferential tools such as confidence intervals. The successful applicant will be expected to develop an innovative research program in sequential decision making. Our lab is involved in a number of mobile health studies in obesity, cardiac health, physical activity, mental illness and substance abuse across the US.
The appointment will be for up to three years with annual renewal based on satisfactory performance and continued availability of funding.
Ph.D. in Statistics, Computer Science, Operations Research, or Electrical Engineering at time of appointment is required.
