I am recruiting outstanding students towards a Master or PhD degree. Full financial support is guaranteed for PhD students. Part or full financial support is also available for master students. If you
  1. are well motivated and dedicated to solve theoretical and/or applied statistical problems,
  2. have a strong background in mathematics OR statistics OR computer programming,

please send me the following items in PDF files to my email (jiguo_cao@sfu.ca ):
  1. A resume (Please tell me the schools you attended, your working experience and your publications),
  2. A copy of your graduate/undergraduate transcript, (I am not asking for an original transcript. A list in email or a photocopy is enough.)

Once I receive the above items, I will contact you and we can start from there. If you do not receive my response in two weeks, it means that your academic background does not fit my research program.
