We are seeking an enthusiastic colleague to work with us to expand our research and educational offerings in statistics, data science, and stochastic modelling. Willingness to engage with industry would be an asset.

The School is strongly committed to increasing the diversity of its staff and students. These two available positions are directed at applicants who are able to contribute to the diversity of the School community.

To be successful at Level B you will need:

  • Demonstrated research ability that supports the School's research strengths in statistics, data science, stochastic modelling, or a related field
  • Record of research achievements as evidenced by publications in high-quality journals or conference proceedings
  • Ability to teach effectively using evidence-based pedagogy that promotes student engagement
  • Commitment to the principles of equity, diversity and inclusion, and ability to contribute to the diversity of the School community

In addition to the above, to be successful at Level C you will need:

  • Demonstrated ability to win significant research funding
  • Record of successful curriculum development or pedagogical innovation
  • Demonstrated ability to attract and supervise postgraduate students
