MIT has launched a cross-Institute center focusing on research and education in Statistics and Information Systems within its newly formed Institute for Data, Systems, and Society (IDSS). Consequently, MIT is seeking candidates for faculty positions starting in July 2018 or on a mutually agreed date thereafter. Appointments will be at the assistant or untenured associate professor level, and will be made in partnership with another MIT department. Faculty duties include teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels, research, and supervision of student research.

We will consider candidates with backgrounds and interests in the broad areas of Statistics ranging from fundamental theoretical focus to applications of Statistics in various domains in Engineering, Management, Science, Life Science and Social Science. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in Statistics, Engineering, Computer Science, Operations Research, Economics, Mathematics or a related field by the start of their employment.

Candidates must register with the Faculty Search website at https://school-of-engineering-faculty-search.mit.edu/ and must submit application materials electronically to this website. Candidate applications should include a description of professional interests and goals in both teaching and research. In view of the joint nature of the position, candidates are encouraged to identify a home department from the School of Engineering. Each application should include a curriculum vitae and the names and addresses of three or more individuals who will provide letters of recommendation. Letter writers should submit their letters directly to MIT, preferably on the website or by mailing to the address below. Responses received by December 15, 2017 will be given priority.
