Yesterday, I went once again to Marseille for a second hiring committee meeting. Apart from seeing the above skater using cars for pulling him up the street (!), I had an interesting afternoon listening to candidates at the margin between game theory, stochastic processes and mathematical economics. None from Statistics. Nonetheless, the range of fields and abilities was quite impressive. I particularly liked the work of Marie and Rousseau on randomised ergodic dynamical systems (even though I presumably missed the important details…) This is the last week of the hiring committees I take part in, an interesting but exhausting exercise!
