RAND Statistics Group

Two Ph.D. level openings

Challenging Statistics Problems The RAND Statistics Group anticipates one or two Ph.D. level openings with exciting opportunities to collaborate on multidisciplinary research projects in public policy areas such as health, national security, criminal and civil justice, education, and environment; to conduct research on statistical methods; to teach; and to consult. RAND projects typically pose novel challenges in design, sampling, measurement, analysis, and computing. Location options include Santa Monica, CA (RAND's headquarters) and Washington, DC (with Tom Louis). For more information, including details on opportunities for Masters-level statisticians, please visit http://www.rand.org/centers/stat .

Candidates should have strong theoretical training and a genuine interest in applied statistics. Openings are available for both recent graduates, and experienced statisticians with substantial publication records and extensive applied experience. Excellent oral and written communication skills are essential. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.

Screening of completed applications will begin December 15, 2000. Submit vita, a statement of research interests and consulting experience, copies of papers or other written work, three letters of reference, and graduate transcripts (for candidates with a Ph.D. since 1998) by mail to:
