|Description :||The Centre for Statistics at the Georg-August-University Göttingen, Germany, is inviting
applications for a PostDoc Position in Statistics (100 % E 13 TV-L, 39.8 h/week) within the Research Training Group (RTG) 1644 ‘Scaling Problems in Statistics’, starting October 1, 2017. The position is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and limited to two years.
The highly interdisciplinary RTG ‘Scaling Problems in Statistics’ studies scaling problems in the
areas of agricultural economics, ecology, econometrics, genetics, remote sensing and statistics with
the aim of developing, extending and applying general statistical methods that are designed to
account for different notions of scale. Specifically, methods from spatial statistics, mixed models
and distributional regression are in the focus of the statistical developments. The successful
candidate for this postdoc position should supplement the methodological competencies of the RTG
in either of these areas.
The RTG involves working groups from Agroecology, Agricultural Economics and Rural
Development, Animal Breeding and Genetics, Ecosystem Modelling, Forest Inventory and Remote
Sensing, Genetic Epidemiology, Mathematical Stochastics, Statistics and Econometrics. For more
information, visit www.uni-goettingen.de/rtg1644. The advertised position is located at the Chair
of Statistics with Prof. Dr. Thomas Kneib (https://www.uni-goettingen.de/en/215408.html).
Successful candidates hold an excellent Ph.D. in statistics, econometrics or mathematics with a
specialization in statistics and have a strong background in statistical modelling, ideally with a
focus on spatial statistics, mixed models, distributional regression or computational statistics. They
should have demonstrated their ability for interdisciplinary collaboration with applied researchers
and a corresponding track record of publications. Further, the willingness to contribute to the
teaching program of the Research Training Group and to offer consulting for Ph.D. students of the
RTG is required. Very good command of English is a prerequisite.
To apply for this position, please send your application including motivation letter, CV, certificates,
two reference contacts, and a short exposé with an outline of your research interests and ideas as
one single PDF file to firstname.lastname@example.org. Notice that the closing date was August 13, 2017, but additional applications are still welcome (although not guaranteed to be considered).
For general questions, please contact our coordinator Barbara Strauss (email@example.com). Questions concerning scientific aspects of the position, you can address to Thomas Kneib (firstname.lastname@example.org).|
