Two postdoc opportunities to work with our research group!! (apply by 15 Nov 2012)

(1) Hop the Q-Train! That is, the Columbia/NYU Quantitative Training Program, funded by the Institute of Education Sciences to create a cohort of postdoctoral scholars both to develop the new statistical methods required to meet future research challenges and to effectively train and consult with other education researchers. You’ll be working with Jennifer Hill, Marc Scott, and me on our exciting research projects, some of which are here! Candidates must be United States citizens or permanent residents. For best consideration applications must be submitted before 15 Nov 2012. Please direct administrative inquiries to Jonathan Winters at and substantive inquiries to Jennifer or me.

(2) The Earth Institute Postdoctoral Fellows program! Every year a select group of recent Ph.D.s in a variety of fields come to the Earth Institute for this two-year research fellowship. I’d love to see more statisticians applying. To apply, candidates must complete the online application and submit a proposal for research that would contribute to the goal of global sustainable development. In addition to submitting the application and proposal, candidates are encouraged to identify and contact their desired multidisciplinary mentoring team: two or more senior faculty members or research scientists/scholars at Columbia University with whom they would like to work during their appointment. We’ve had two statisticians in this program in the past (Kenny Shirley and Leontine Alkema) and they fit in really well with us and with the EI group. If you’re interested, just contact me directly. And this one has a hard deadline of 15 Nov 2012.
