>We are a market research company based in Bristol in the UK. We are conducting
>research into the buying behaviour of consumers in products such as General
>Insurance. 
> 
>The research is breaking new ground in both the volume and depth of data
>being collected.  Unfortunately we have so much data that it is proving
>difficult to find meaningful results in it.
> 
>We are looking for someone for a short-term assignment to help us understand
>how we could better apply statistical techniques to this data to help us
>explain hidden relationships in it.
> 
>For instance, can the data help us understand why some people renew their
>car insurance with certain companies whereas other people donít. We have
>been considering non-parametric testing and neural networks, but you may be
>aware of other techniques that might help.
> 
>Our eventual aim is to build a tool that would allow our customers, who are
>not statistically minded, to explore relationships themselves.  So they can understand
>why their customers are leaving them more frequently than other peopleís
>customers (for instance).
> 
>Having knowledge of both Stats and web programming would be a major plus.
> 
>The assignment is for 2-3 months, starting immediately in Bristol, UK.  We
>can help provide accommodation and up to £40,000 pro-rata for the period of
>the contract.
> 
>There is a possibility for the right candidate to stay on more permanently
>if they want to, but this a short-term project to start off with.
