Dear R-lings,

I did not know which list to post to, because it is a studentship so not really a job, so it did not fit the r-sig-jobs list .... and it is about devloping an extension package interfaced with R .... I hope I did not upset anyone. If so apologies.

The Centre For Complex systems Analysis at the University of York (YCCSA) in UK in collaboration with Stockholm Environment Institute is looking for a highly motivated student in Computer Science, Applied Mathematics, Applied Statistics or related fields for a 10 weeks paid student internship over the summer 2011, starting in july, to collaborate in development of a R package. The student will participate in research projects to develop prototypes for toolkits for statistical predictions of diversity and dissimilarity and the generation of spatial landscapes, with applications in the biological and environmental sciences. We require excellent development skills and experience in CUDA/openCL, and a strong foundation in Computing, Statistics / Applied Mathematics and COmputer Graphics. We need an excellent problem solver, able to innovate, find solutions and work independently.

For further information on the project please contact ct529_at_york.ac.uk or go to http://www.york.ac.u...2011/201107.pdf

For further information on the studentship programme please look at http://www.york.ac.u...olarships.html.
