About the Project
These questions include
• How many molecular ’species’ are present?
• What is the abundance of a particular species in a sample for which we have imperfect sampling, and what can we infer about the dynamics?
• To what degree do two species have the opportunity to interact?
This project will look to develop and apply methods to answer these and similar questions, drawing on the large corpus of work addressing analogous problems in statistical ecology.
Applicants should have a good first degree in mathematics, statistics or another discipline (e.g., biology, computer science), with substantial statistical component. A masters-level degree is an advantage.
