The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at The College of New Jersey (TCNJ) invites outstanding applicants for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Statistics and/or a 10-month Visiting Assistant Professor position starting in August 2017.
We seek a broadly trained statistician who has the potential to contribute collaboratively to interdisciplinary curricular and scholarly efforts within the Department, School of Science, and the College. The successful candidate will be passionate about teaching statistics at every level of the undergraduate curriculum in a primarily undergraduate, residential, liberal arts-centered institution. The typical teaching load is 2 to 3 courses per semester and will be a mixture of upper-level and introductory-level courses. We have a special interest in candidates with experience in applied statistics and an interest in interdisciplinary applications of statistical inference. An earned doctorate in statistics, biostatistics, mathematics, applied mathematics, or a closely related field is required. Although post-doctoral experience is preferred, other backgrounds will be considered; ABDs will be considered only if the degree will be completed prior to start date.
Teaching and research are mutually supportive activities at TCNJ. Candidates should be strongly committed to the teacher-scholar model, to maintaining both high quality teaching and an active and productive research program, to encouraging and engaging highly motivated undergraduates in intensive, individual work both inside and outside the classroom (e.g., undergraduate research, independent study), and, for tenure-track candidates, to seeking external funding consistent with this mission. Faculty members also serve as academic advisors and have service responsibilities within the Department, School, and College. The Mathematics and Statistics Department is housed in a modern building that offers excellent facilities, including a new high-performance computing cluster For further information about our program, please visit: https://mathstat.tcnj.edu/.
