Statistician Vacancy for the World Engineering Index at CGE
The Centre for Global Equality is beginning a new project for which we require a statistician.
This project will develop a ‘proof of concept’ for a new ‘World Engineering Index’, which could become part of a new biennial report called ‘Engineering: the State of the Art’.
The current concept of the index is that it will be a composite index that looks at three factors across every country: Engineering Capacity, Quality and Need. The index will rank countries according to these criteria, and will allow simple visual comparisons between countries and regions, and between a country and the averages for its region and the world. It will provide a single, simple entry point for discussion of engineering policies.
We are looking for a Statistician at PhD or post-Doc level with the availability to work seven days in the next couple of months (we are flexible on the exact dates) at £100 per day (£700 in total).
The key aspects of the role are:
To develop the necessary calculations for a credible World Engineering Index.
To ensure that we have statistically sound judgments when bringing together very different kinds of data.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in joining us on this project.
