The University of Vienna, Department of Statistics and Operations Research, invites applications for the position of a Prae-Doc (3 year appointment, 30hrs) at the intersection of Mathematical Finance, Stochastic Analysis and Machine Learning.
The successful candidate will work in the START research project “Universal structures in Mathematical Finance”, run by Prof. Christa Cuchiero. The focus of the project lies on universal structures that pertain literally to both, mathematics and finance. The goal is to explore this mathematical and financial universality and to provide a unifying stochastic framework, building on process classes which have, appropriately seen, universal approximation properties, well known also from the theory of machine learning.
