Wes, Sorry to contact you directly. I answered to this ad on 05/24, sending a cover letter and a link to my resume to Matt. However, I didn't get any news since. Do you mind telling me how to check the status of my application ? If it is rejected, so it goes, but I'd still like to know. In other news, I have plenty of free time in front of me and need a project of some sort to stay busy. That'd be a good opportunity to work on a standard way to deal w/ time series in Numpy/Scipy, eg providing bridges between scikits.timeseries and pandas... Let me know what you think. Sincerely, P.
Oops, somebody should double check who's in copy before sending his emails... Sorry about the noise all. However, feel free to contact me offlist w/ your ideas regarding handling time series in numpy. All my apologies again. P.
