Outstanding and enthusiastic academics are sought to be part of the Department of Statistics at Warwick, one of the world’s most prominent and most research active departments of Statistics. The department has close relations with the co-located Mathematics Institute and Department of Computer Science and with other departments such as Economics and the Warwick Business School, and is strongly engaged with the Alan Turing Institute in London. We are advertising three permanent posts, which reflects the strong commitment of the University of Warwick to invest in Statistics.
We are looking for applicants with evidence or promise of world-class research excellence to join the Department at Assistant or Associate Professor level. You will have expertise in statistics (to be interpreted in the widest sense and to include both applied and methodological statistics, machine learning and financial data modelling, together with interdisciplinary topics involving one or more of these areas). You will help shape research at Warwick in this fast-developing discipline and deliver high quality teaching across our broad range of degree programmes. Applicants at the Associate Professor level should have an excellent publication record. Other positive indicators include a proven ability to secure research funding and a track record of research impact outside of the area of academic dissemination. Applicants at the Assistant Professor level should show exceptional promise to become internationally leading academics.
The Department of Statistics is committed to promoting equality and diversity, and holds an Athena SWAN Bronze award demonstrating this commitment. We welcome applicants from all sections of the community and will give due consideration to applicants seeking flexible working patterns and to those who have taken a career break.
Informal enquires can be addressed to Professors Jon Forster (J.J.Forster@warwick.ac.uk), Gareth Roberts (Gareth.O.Roberts@warwick.ac.uk) or to any other senior member of the Warwick Statistics Department.
Closing date: January 12, 2020.
