New Team Member: Statistician

The NYS Beekeeper Tech Team is looking to independently contract a statistician to work part time hours remotely from now until January. This person will conduct statistical analyses on previously collected datasets and create statistical figures. Their work will be incorporated into a summary report on honey bee health for the New York State Dept of Agriculture and Markets and the state’s beekeeping industry. This person must exhibit strong quantitative skills in mixed effects models and generalized linear models (especially modeling count-data and survival data). They must also keep well-documented statistical workflows (e.g., well-commented R codes), and be able to meet frequently through Zoom or Skype with project team members to share progress and challenges.
