Postdoctoral fellow
Statistical modelling of sediment records
to study environment and climate change

The successful applicant is expected to develop and apply statistical methods to analyse properties of varved lake sediments with high temporal resolution over long time periods. The objective is to study past changes in the environment, in particular climate variability, based on an existing 4000 years record of lake sediment data.

The position is for a time period of one year with a possible prolongation for another period of one year. The post doc will be based at the Department of Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics, within a project run in close collaboration with scientists at the Department of Ecology and Environmental Science. Therefore an interest to collaborate across disciplines is essential.

To qualify for the position you need a PhD degree in mathematical statistics or statistics, preferably not older than five years. Experience relevant to the project is an advantage, but applicants will be ranked primarily based on their scientific achievements. Topics relevant to the project include time series analysis, multivariate analysis and functional data analysis.

For further information, please contact associate professor Sara Sjöstedt de Luna, +46-90-786 51 29, , or associate professor Anders Fällström (Head of department), +46-90-786 53 76, . For a general presentation of the department, see . See also the International office, for a general presentation of Umeå and the University.

The application should contain Curriculum Vitae, copies of degree certificates, names and contact details of at least two references, and short accounts of scientific and pedagogic activities. Scientific articles, and other documents the applicant wants to refer to, should be attached.

Union information is available from SACO, +46-(0)90-786 53 65, SEKO civil, +46-(0)90-786 52 96 and ST, +46-(0)90-786 54 31.

Applications will be discarded or, if the applicant so wishes, returned two years after the position has been filled. Documents sent electronically should be in MS Word or PDF format.

Your complete application, marked with reference number 315-155-08 should be sent to or to the Registrar, Umeå University, SE-901 87 Umeå, Sweden to arrive March 17, 2008 at the latest.

We look forward to receiving your application!
