The Institute for Defense Analyses – Operational Evaluation Division (OED) is looking for a Bayesian statistician to join its Test Science team.  Test Science is a group of statisticians, data scientists, and psychologists that provides expertise on experimentation to the DoD.

In particular, we are looking for a Bayesian statistician to help our naval warfare group use the results from past test events to inform the design and analysis of future test events. Candidates will also need to have a background in experimental design, strong public speaking and writing skills, and be able to work well on group projects.

US citizenship required.

Possibly of interest for statisticians / social scientists looking for a post doc we have an opportunity now at WZB Berlin that should be interesting. We are working with 7 teams implementing network scale up, RDS and other methods side by side in six countries to assess relative performance for measuring the prevalence of hidden populations (human trafficking).

We are focused on the meta-analytic part of this.

If you know good people it’s a good place to be and a really interesting topic.
