Position TitleAssistant Professor in Statistics

Company Information

The University of Washington Tacoma serves a dynamic and culturally diverse population of over 5000 undergraduate and graduate students. A majority of our student population is first generation in college.

The Tacoma campus of the University of Washington was founded in 1990 with an interdisciplinary approach at its foundation. It has evolved into a thriving downtown campus that
serves students of a wide variety of ages and backgrounds in the South Puget Sound. Faculty
have access to the resources of the University of Washington, a major research university,
including an extensive library system, but work and teach within a small campus setting. Our
campus provides a supportive environment for the development of creative teaching, research
and community collaborations. The campus commitment to equity and inclusion is central to
maintaining an atmosphere where students, staff, and faculty find abundant opportunities for
intellectual, personal and professional growth within our campus and broader community.

Candidates should have a strong research agenda from any area of applied statistics, in or outside of academia.
They are expected to conduct scholarship of high quality and impact and to involve undergraduate students in their research.
