Department: School of Criminal Justice at the University of Lausanne
Duration: 18 m        Workload: 100%
Duties: The School of Criminal Justice is seeking ascientist to start a PhD research project on probabilistic evaluation of comparative handwriting examinations using graphical models (i.e., Bayesian networks). The primary objective - is to rely on Bayesian networks within a general methodology for structured expert knowledge elicitation and analysis in order to build diagrammatic interpretation structures that have the potential to become part of the scope of resources that forensic experts need to substantiate probabilistic evaluations and conclusions in cases involving the results of comparative handwriting examinations. The appointed PhD candidate in this project will work closely with practising forensic handwriting examiners and conduct both fundamental research on probabilistic interpretation in the context of forensic handwriting examination and in-depth case studies
Minimum Requirements: Applicants must have a strong background in science, preferably forensic science or mathematics/statistics, with an emphasis on Bayesian inference and data analysis. Further, applicants should have or be willing to acquire a thorough understanding of the belief-type (i.e., subjectivist) interpretation of probability, case based probabilistic reasoning and methods for probability elicitation (in particular when data are scarce). Knowledge and experience in graphical probability models (i.e. Bayesian networks) and practical skills with the R computer language are also highly welcomed and would be a real advantage
