Continuing an ambitious long-term plan, which includes expansion into part of the new £40M Bayes Centre, the School of Mathematics is making a number of permanent appointments in the Mathematical Sciences.

We are recruiting candidates with a track record of high quality research and teaching in Statistics and Data Science to start on 1 August 2018 or by agreement. The successful applicants will contribute to the growing reputation of the University as an international hub for Statistics and will join the recently established University-wide Centre for Statistics. They will interact with colleagues in the Bayes Centre, a new interdisciplinary Data Science Institute within the University, as well as the Maxwell Institute, a longstanding research partnership between the University of Edinburgh and Heriot-Watt University. They will also have opportunities to be actively involved with the Alan Turing Institute, a UK wide initiative in Data Science.

All applications must be submitted online and include a full CV, a research statement and a teaching statement. We also require details of four referees, three to comment on your research and one on your teaching.

Salary Scale: £39,992 – £47,722 per annum. Very strong and experienced applicants may be appointed to a Readership, for which the salary is £50,618 – £56,950 per annum.

Applications close at 5pm (UK time) on 3rd January 2018.

Informal enquiries may be made to Professor Ruth King (Thomas Bayes’ Chair of Statistics)
