Supervisor: Bryan Clair, 314-***-****

email: ac8ww1@r.postjobfree.com

40 hours/week

Salary: $ 65,000

Visiting Assistant Professor

During the Fall 2018 semester I taught Foundations of Statistics with R (MATH 3850), a calculus based introduction to probability and Time Series (MATH 4840); this semester I am teaching two sections of MATH 3850 and Calculus I (MATH 1510). I conduct research in statistics, and serve on university committees as required. I have submitted a paper, Optimal Allocation of a Stratified Simple Random Sample with Multiple Estimation Objectives, to the journal Computational Statistics (Springer-Verlag). I continue a research collaboration with personnel at the National Agricultural Statistics Service (USDA).

Mathematical Statistician, GS-13, Step 10

Provided consultation for clients, both internal and external. Participated substantially in all phases of the consultation process: eliciting and formalizing the estimation goals of the client, doing the background research required to understand the subject matter and data, designing the survey instrument, developing an efficient, practical sample design to meet the estimation goals of the client, communicating proposed sampling plans and rationale to the client and participating in the ensuing discussions and negotiations. Prepared formal written documentation of the statistical methodology used for sampling and estimation, as well as the code used to realize those methods.

Developed statistical methodology and applied mathematical tools as appropriate; communicated methods and rationale to colleagues and clients. Developed methodology and SAS code for realizing targeted measures of precision with minimal sample sizes.

Deputy Director – Biostatistics, GS-14, Step 5.

Used SAS SQL to extract data from extremely large, poorly documented data sets. The data obtained were used to construct statistical samples of patient records to investigate compliance with program standards, and thereby produce measures of quality for health care delivery.

40 hours/week

Salary: $ 110,906

Mathematical Statistician, GS-13, Step 8

Researched potential applications of mathematics and statistics to estimation, prediction, imputation and simulation to improve the accuracy of published estimates and increase cost effectiveness. Provided consultation and advice as required, both inside and outside the agency.

Took the initiative to acquire basic knowledge of biology and agronomy on which to base statistical models for making early season predictions of crop yield. Was the principal NASS investigator in a multi-year cooperative agreement with Southern Illinois University-Carbondale to develop data collection techniques and statistical methodology on which to base early season predictions of soybean yield.

Applied mathematical techniques for composite estimation to develop a means of combining multiple indications of yield into a single indication in an optimal manner. This technique has been implemented as part of the analytic package used by the Agricultural Statistics Board in setting published estimates of yield and production.

Worked as a member of a team reviewing imputation methods for US Census of Agriculture. Developed methods for improving and extending the nearest-neighbor methodology used for item non-response on the US Census of Agriculture.

Kept current on developments in mathematics and statistics, and disseminated information about those developments to other investigators in the agency. Represented the agency at professional meetings.
