New WKU Applied Statistics Center seeking students, faculty & staff

Many researchers and companies need to make data-driven decisions, using statistically valid analyses of their data.  The newly created Applied Statistics Center at WKU aims to provide student-led, faculty/staff-mentored statistical consulting.  Under the guidance of affiliate faculty/staff members, students in the Applied Statistics Center will collaborate with both academic researchers and industry clients to find statistical solutions to problems.  The center will provide hands-on experience for students by allowing them to work on real projects and to participate in the different stages of research and statistical consulting.

We are seeking statistically-minded faculty/staff members who are interested in serving as mentors and members of the Applied Statistics Center.  We are also looking for qualified students to work for the center (and to be paid for doing so).

If you are interested in serving as a member, know of students who may be qualified to work in the center, or would like more information about the center, please contact us.

Sincerely,
Melanie Autin (Co-Director) and Ngoc Nguyen (Co-Director)
