Time to apply for an Earth Institute postdoc!

The economy isn’t going so well, but there are some interesting possibilities here at Columbia University. One such option that you should be thinking about is the Earth Institute Fellowship, which pays well, includes a research stipend, and puts you in an exciting interdisciplinary community of faculty and postdoctoral researchers. The Earth Institute at Columbia brings in several postdocs each year–it’s a two-year gig–and some of them have been statisticians (recently, Kenny Shirley and Leontine Alkema). We’re particularly interested in statisticians who have research interests in development and public health. It’s fine–not just fine, but ideal–if you are interested in statistical methods also. The EI postdoc can be a place to do interesting work and begin a research career.

If you’re a statistician who’s interested in this fellowship, feel free to contact me directly–you have to apply to the Earth Institute directly (see link above), but I’m happy to give you advice about whether your goals fit into our program. It’s important to me, and to others in the EI, to have statisticians involved in our research.

Deadline for applications is 1 Dec.
