Applications are invited for three positions in Statistics / Statistical Data Science within the School of Mathematics, Statistics & Physics from September 2019, or such other date as may be agreed. The positions are open to researchers in all areas of statistics or statistical data science.

The Statistics group seeks excellent researchers and dedicated teachers who will strengthen or complement our existing areas or who may further broaden our range of expertise. At Newcastle we have a wide span of interests in statistics. Research themes include Bayesian methodology for complex models; big data, scalability and computation; biostatistics; stochastic systems biology; and spatial and environmental statistics. Candidates should have strong research records and should have excellent teaching potential and communication skills.

Our aim is to employ a rich mix of people with different backgrounds that will help us to:
– bring new ideas and different perspectives to both teaching and research;
– refresh our engagement with one another and challenge our thinking;
– enhance our collegiate environment;
– provide more diverse role models, attract a wider range of bright, active and engaged students and enhance our pastoral care.

All applicants who fulfill the criteria are welcome. We are keen to offer opportunities, where possible, to people from groups who are currently underrepresented in mathematical sciences in the UK.

The closing date for applications is 11 August 2019.
