Position Overview

The Department of Statistics at The Ohio State University seeks to fill four tenure-track faculty positions at the following ranks: assistant (two positions), assistant or associate (one position), and open rank (one position). Successful candidates will be expected to contribute to the research, teaching and service missions of the department. Candidates with expertise in all research areas of statistics are encouraged to apply. Preferred areas of interest include (i) high-dimensional data; (ii) the foundations of data science; and (iii) complex dependence structures. We interpret each of these areas broadly. High-dimensional data analysis, for example, is motivated by modern, massive data sets that present computational, modeling, and/or statistical challenges. It is also motivated by data whose dimension is of the same order or exceeds the sample size. The foundations of data science include, for example, algorithmic modeling, large-scale computation, and theory for understanding algorithmic models and their evaluation, as well as related applications. Complex data structures include, as examples, data that are measured in space and time, live in non-standard spaces (functional data, shape data, network data), include individual heterogeneity (random effects), or have unmeasured covariates and unknown relationships (latent variable models). The appointment will be at a level commensurate with the applicant’s experience. Applicants must specify the desired appointment rank in their cover letter.

Education and Experience Requirements

Required: A Ph.D. in Statistics or related field by the start of employment. Candidates should demonstrate a commitment to building a culturally diverse intellectual community, in line with OSU’s Shared Values. (https://oaa.osu.edu/shared-values-initiative)

Desired: We expect a commitment to methodological research and scientific collaboration and to the development and delivery of courses at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Applicants at the Associate or Full rank are expected to have established an excellent record of research, mentorship, and service to the profession.
