The Department of Mathematics at Syracuse University invites applications for a tenure-track position in the area of Statistics at the Assistant Professor level, beginning August 2021.
This recruitment is part of an ambitious Invest Syracuse Cluster Hire Initiative. As an integral part of this investment, Syracuse University will recruit multiple candidates for faculty positions for a research cluster in the focus area of Big Data and Data Analytics. Faculty hired into these positions will participate in an organized research cluster that spans multiple departments in the College of Arts and Sciences and in the College of Engineering and Computer Science, Falk College of Sport and Human Dynamics, Whitman School of Management, and School of Information Studies.
The proposed position is for a Statistician whose research interests are in developing methodologies for the analysis of high-dimensional complex data related to physical and biological science applications. The position will also create strong synergistic effect on current statisticians in Mathematics, whose research interests include Bayesian Statistics & nonparametric/semi-parametric analysis. See http://thecollege.syr.edu/mathematics for more information. The new hire will also provide support for statistics education at the undergraduate/graduate level, including creating new courses in Data Science in the Mathematics Department.
A PhD in Statistics or in Mathematics with an emphasis in Statistics is required. Previous postdoctoral experience is preferred. Candidates should have a record of accomplishment and potential in both research and teaching.
The department seeks candidates whose research, teaching, or service has prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and inclusion. Women and other members of groups who are underrepresented in higher education, and in mathematics specifically, are strongly encouraged to apply.
Step 2: Candidates must submit a cover letter, CV, research and teaching statements, three letters of recommendation addressing research qualifications, and at least one letter of recommendation addressing teaching at Mathjobs.org. (http://www.mathjobs.org/jobs).
Screening of candidates begins immediately and continues until the position is filled.
