We seek doctors in Statistics (or related areas) with strong research
potential that can develop supervised work on the aforementioned topics. It
is desirable that the candidates have proven experience in data analysis
and computer skills. The selected researchers will work in São Paulo
(University of São Paulo's Institute of Mathematics and Statistics
[ME-USP], Institute of Education and Research [INSPER]) or Campinas
(University of Campinas's Institute of Mathematics, Statistics and
Scientific Computation [IMECC-UNICAMP]) under the supervision of one the
project’s principal investigators.

Interested candidates should apply to *stodad at ime.unicamp.br*
<stodad at ime.unicamp.br>. The application email should contain the following:

(i) A letter (pdf file) explaining the candidate’s background, in which
topic(s) they’d like to work and the reasons why they feel they are
suitable for the proposed task.

(ii) Candidate’s CV (pdf file).

(iii) PhD dissertation summary (pdf file) and a two-page summary of
published works (pdf file).

(iv) E-mail and postal (official university or professional) addresses for
two former research supervisors or course professors which are willing to
write recommendation letters.

 I don't mind not knowing.  It doesn't scare me.  - Richard Feynman

To consult the statistician after an experiment is finished is often merely
to ask him to conduct a post mortem examination. He can perhaps say
what the experiment died of. -Ronald A. Fisher.
