We are not really looking for a physicist or a mathematician, but for a person with a strong mathematical background (not necessarily a BA or higher in math) and good analytical skills. The candidate has to be able to understand and develop solutions to specific problems. Candidates with some knowledge of ruby and python will be preferred, but being able to write an algorithm or provide a mathematical analysis is sufficient.
Since we have had some candidates that were unable to carry out the work, we ask to complete the assignment attached (up until it says stop here). If you're selected, you will have to complete it, and you will be payed 2 hours now, and 4 hours at the end of the project (if you finish it).
