Summer job opportunity using Splus/R in Corvallis, Oregon:

Great opportunity to gain experience in application of survey
designs to natural resources.  Graduate level statistician/programmer
competent in the development of algorithms using the statistical
software SPlus or R to work as a summer hire as part of the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency's Environmental Monitoring and
Assessment Program (EMAP) Design Team, located in Corvallis, Oregon.
EMAP develops survey designs for aquatic resources using unequal
probability sampling based on a hierarchical grid randomization
process.  The person filling the position will write SPlus/R
functions to implement this process.  Research level functions
currently exist for parts of the process.  The objective is to
generalize these functions and make into a coherent survey design
library in SPlus/R.

The person will work in collaboration with several research
statisticians and geographers who will provide specific guidance.
No specific knowledge of survey design is expected.  Development
of the functions may include identifying portions that are best
completed as C functions.  Although it would be beneficial if the
person knew C programming, that is not a requirement.  Work will
be completed in a Windows computing environment.  Must be a U.S.
citizen and a student in good standing.  Approximate pay scale:
GS-7 (in the range of $13-$14/hr.; no travel/housing allowance).
Duration of employment: June - September (flexible start/stop
dates).  Deadline for applications:  15 May 2002.

Contact: Phil Larsen (larsen.david at epa.gov) or
         Tony Olsen (olsen.tony at epa.gov).
