Current Team Members

The Approximate Bayesian Inference Team is a diverse group of people that encourages a multi-cultural environment. We think this is a key ingredient for any successful workplace, even more so for research. We are committed to establishing a welcoming environment for people of any background, and as such we encourage applications from any minority.

If you are interested in joining us, please check the news for open positions or see here for available RIKEN programmes.
