The department of mathematics & statistics at McMaster has an open position for a tenure-track assistant professor in probability & statistics: specifically, for “candidates with a PhD in Statistics, Mathematics, Computer Science or a related field and a proven record of research excellence in Probability or Statistics in an area bridging fundamental and applied approaches”. We would happy to be see applications from any researchers with a creative and thoughtful research program.

McMaster is a research-intensive university in Hamilton, Ontario with strengths in health sciences and engineering; applicants with applied interests would find lots of potential collaborators in the biology and psychology, neuroscience and behaviour departments and in the faculty of health science (among many others).

We will start to review applications on November 15 (sorry for the short notice!); feel free to give me (Ben Bolker, a heads-up if you are planning to apply but won’t be able to complete your application by that time, or with any other questions.

There are many competing, open positions in statistics this year at excellent universities throughout Canada and the US (maybe even at your own institution); I’d encourage you (or your early-career associates) to consider McMaster as one of your options.
