Dear students,

Here is an opportunity to keep in mind if you will be graduating in  
the coming year (or for future reference if your graduate is further  
off).  I would recommend that those in the stochastics area may wish  
to visit SAMSI for one of their workshops, etc.  This would give you  
a good chance to meet the professors who might be potential post-doc  

Best regards,

> Subject: SAMSI Postdoctoral Positions Available in 2007-08
> The Statistical and Applied Mathematical Sciences Institute (SAMSI)  
> is soliciting applications from statistical and mathematical  
> scientists for up to eight postdoctoral positions, to begin in  
> September, 2007 or January, 2008. Appointments, at extremely  
> competitive salaries, will typically be for two years and be made  
> jointly between SAMSI and one of its Partners. Applicants should  
> have received (or expect to complete) a doctorate in 2002 or later.  
> Members of under-represented groups are particularly encouraged to  
> apply.
> SAMSI, located in Research Triangle Park in North Carolina, is a  
> partnership between the National Science Foundation and the  
> consortium of Duke University, North Carolina State University  
> (NCSU), the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC), and  
> the National Institute of Statistical Sciences (NISS).  SAMSI is  
> forging a new synthesis of the statistical sciences and the applied  
> mathematical sciences with disciplinary science to confront the  
> very hardest and most important data- and model-driven scientific  
> challenges.  For more information, see www.samsi.info.
> SAMSI programs planned for the year 2007-08 are:
> • Risk Analysis, Extreme Events and Decision Theory will address  
> fundamental issues in risk analysis, as well as associated problems  
> associated with extreme events and decision theory through  
> collaboration of statistical, applied mathematical and decision  
> sciences, including operations research (Fall 2007, Spring 2008).
> • Random Media will provide a forum to investigate statistical and  
> deterministic components of random media for applications  
> including, but not limited to, time reversal, interface problems,  
> imaging in random media, and scattering theory for discontinuous  
> media (Fall 2007, Spring 2008).
> • Environmental Sensor Networks will bring together ecologists,  
> mathematicians, statisticians, and computer scientists with the  
> objective of formulating and addressing optimization of data  
> gathering, data analysis, data coverage, modeling and inference  
> when the network itself is a dynamic system of self-organizing  
> nodes (Spring 2008).
> Postdoctoral Fellows will participate in one or more of these  
> research programs, in collaboration with statisticians, applied  
> mathematicians and disciplinary scientists from universities,  
> industry, national laboratories and government agencies.  Criteria  
> for selection include demonstrated research ability in statistical  
> and/or applied mathematical sciences, interest and (to a lesser  
> degree) experience in the SAMSI program areas and vision, and  
> strength in computation and in verbal and written communication.
> The deadline for full consideration of applications is January 31,  
> 2007 although later applications will be considered as resources  
> permit. Postdoctoral appointments may be made at any time.  SAMSI  
> accepts only electronic applications. Additional information and  
> the electronic application can be accessed at www.samsi.info/ 
> opportunities/postdoc.shtml.
