Significance early-career writing competition
We’ve just issued the call for entries for our 2018 writing competition for early-career statisticians. Details of the competition are available online here.
The competition is open to: (1) Students currently studying for a first degree, Master’s or PhD in statistics or related subjects; and (2) Graduates whose last qualification in statistics or related subjects (whether first degree, Master’s or PhD) was not more than five years ago.
Last year’s winner, Kevin Lin, analysed user activity on the social media site, Reddit, to see whether young people were now more engaged with political news and topics. The year before that, Adam B. Kashlak won for his analysis of State of the Union addresses throughout history, showing how use of the word “America” by sitting US presidents had increased over time.
The closing date is 28 May 2018.
