Non-Tenure Track Faculty Positions at the Assistant or Associate Level
Colorado State University
April 10, 2018
Fort Collins, Colorado
Full Time - Entry Level
The Department of Statistics at Colorado State University invites applications for two non-tenure track faculty positions with rank of Assistant or Associate Professor. The responsibilities of these positions include consulting/collaborative research (50%) and teaching (50%). We seek exceptionally strong candidates with interests and experience relevant to environmental health biostatistics. Faculty will be associated with the Graybill Statistical Laboratory.
For the consulting/collaborative research portion of the positions, the faculty member will provide advice on statistical design, analysis, and interpretation, and collaborate with environmental epidemiologists, and more broadly environmental and occupational health faculty in CSU’s Department of Environmental and Radiological Health Sciences (http://csu-cvmbs.colostate.edu/academics/erhs/Pages/Epidemiology.aspx). Teaching duties will include teaching courses in the Department of Statistics with a focus on service courses in introductory and applied statistics as well as serving on graduate student committees.
A Ph.D. in statistics, biostatistics, or a related discipline is required. Several years of experience in applied statistics, especially biostatistics for environmental health applications, is strongly preferred. Outstanding verbal and written English communication skills are essential. Demonstrated potential for excellence in teaching is also expected. This is a 9-month academic year non-tenure track position that has the possibility for renewal. In addition, there is opportunity to support summer salary with research funding.
An application includes a cover letter, complete CV, three letters of reference, and a statement (1-3 pages) describing both the candidate’s experience in collaboration and/or consulting and teaching experience and philosophy. Application materials can be uploaded at https://jobs.colostate.edu/postings/55547. Complete application instructions are available at that site.
Applications completed by April 30, 2018 will receive full consideration, but applications will be accepted after this date until the positions are filled.
The Department of Statistics is committed to diversity and inclusion and expects candidates to have the ability to advance the department's efforts in these areas.
CSU is an EO/EA/AA employer and conducts background checks on all final candidates.
