Statistical Analysis Internship

Extreme values modeling and estimation are a key challenge in climate data analysis. Understanding the statistical properties of extremes in a climate data set is of high interest to scientists, planners and engineers. The characterization of the distribution and frequency of the extreme values is used to answer questions on how often certain climatic phenomena would occur and whether there are trends in the data. This research project involves describing and discussing approaches for various statistical methods involved in estimating extremes. Specifically, the project will entail analyzing precipitation data at a state level using a generalized extreme value analysis method and comparing it with other extreme value analysis methods.

This will be a paid, part-time internship position, working remotely. For details and to apply, please go to:
