I just received this announcement for the opening of a (tenured/civil servant) position in the national research institute in biostatistics, genetics, and agronomy, INRA:

Position opening with profile Approximate inference techniques in complex systems

Key activities and required skills: You will develop methodological research in the field of statistical inference for models used in environmental sciences. These inference techniques will account for the complex dependency structure due to the temporal, spatial and evolutionary organisation of the observations, for the heterogeneity of the data and for the existence of unobserved variables or incomplete data. Solid experience in statistical modelling of complex data (graphic models, multi-scale spatio-temporal data) and a strong orientation towards the applications in environment and biology would be appreciated. Skills in approximation techniques (variational inference, ABC techniques) will be welcome.

Contact person: Stéphane Robin (robin [chez] agroparistech [lepoint] fr)

Location:  Versailles-Grignon (Paris)

Deadline: February 25, 2012

Website: INRA offer

This should appeal to (some) readers of the blog, esp. since the offer has no nationality constraint.
