We currently have two postdoc opportunities together with an industry partner in the field of wind and solar power forecasting (full time, Level B). They are suitable for recently graduated PhD students that can start between now and June-July.
The opportunities are as follows:
Wind power forecasting: 1 year contract Good programming skills in R and/or Python Solid background in Machine Learning and/or Statistics Background in time series forecasting desirable Solar power forecasting: 6 months contract Good programming skills in R and/or Python Solid background in Machine Learning and/or Statistics Data will be cloud coverage data from sky cams, so some image processing background is necessary Background in time series forecasting desirable Please contact Christoph Bergmeir if you are interested.
For students who are interested in doing a PhD at Monash under my supervision.
First, check that you satisfy the following criteria:
You must have completed a degree in statistics that involved some research component (e.g., an honours or masters thesis). A degree in computer science, mathematics or econometrics might be acceptable if it contained a substantial amount of statistics. A degree in any other field is not sufficient background to work with me.
