Sponsored Postdoctoral Fellowship with Battelle Memorial Institute
Qualifications: PhD in Statistics or Biostatistics with a demonstrated
interest in spatial and spatial-temporal statistical
modeling including applications in disease mapping.
Description and Duties: Recent advances in scientific computing have
made the inclusion of complex spatial and spatial-temporal structures in
statistical models feasible, especially within a Bayesian hierarchical
modeling framework. One area in which these complex models find wide
applicability is in the area of exposure modeling and disease mapping.
The postdoctoral researcher will share a joint appointment between the
Mathematical Biosciences Institute and Battelle Memorial Institute with
a half-time commitment to each group. Duties of the postdoctoral
researcher at Battelle will include the development of statistical models,
methodology, and software related to spatial-temporal modeling; for more
information, contact Dr. Steven Bortnick (email@example.com).
conducted at the MBI will include disease and biomarker mapping; Dr. Noel Cressie (firstname.lastname@example.org) of the Department of
Statistics at Ohio State will serve as the MRI postdoc mentor. Candidates must have excellent communication and computing skills.
Deadline: Screening of applications will start February 2, 2004, until the position is filled.
Applications: Applications should include the MBI application
form (available on-line at http://mbi.osu.edu/forms/postdocapplication.html);
statement of scientific activities and accomplishments, future research plans, and reasons for wishing to participate in the program; a curriculum vitae and a list of publications; and three letters of recommendation.
Applications and letters should be sent to:
