The Center for Research in Mathematical Sciences Applied to Industry (CeMEAI) based in the Institute of Mathematical and Computer Sciences of University of São Paulo (São Carlos, Brazil) - one of the Research, Innovation and Dissemination Centers (RIDCs) supported by the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) - opens a post-doctoral research position in Statistics.

The selected candidate will conduct the research project entitled Medical data modeling in presence of recurrent events, under supervision of Professor Vicente Garibay Cancho.

About the Project

Medical data analysis in presence of recurrent events is important in clinical study for design of therapeutic strategies, and specific methodologies to prevent the event. The project aims to develop models for modeling of recurrent events in the medical field, which allows estimating important quantities such as the expected time between disease recurrence, factors associated with recurrences, and the impact of these factors on recurrence. Another objective of this project is to develop efficient computational methods for inferential procedures.


Applicants should have PhD in Statistics or related fields with some experience in medical data modeling, especially in multivariate survival data analysis and stochastic simulation. Candidates must have got their PhD in the last 5 years.


Please send your application before September 30, 2019. Please indicate post-doctoral application - Statistics in the subject line. Applications should include curriculum vitae, statement of research interests and two contact information for recommendation letters (only PDF files).
