Position TitleAssistant or Associate Professor in Statistics

Company Information

The School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences is dedicated to providing quality instruction and research in the mathematical and statistical sciences. We embrace the challenge of teaching mathematics to students with a wide variety of backgrounds, abilities and needs.

Duties and Responsibilities

The School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences (SoMSS) at Arizona State University invites applications for a tenure-eligible position in statistics at rank of Assistant or Associate Professor. Rank and tenure status will be commensurate with experience. Anticipated start date is fall 2020. The Division of Statistics and Data Science is a semi-autonomous unit within SoMSS and currently contains eight faculty members and the University intends to increase the size and scope of this division significantly within the next few years. The expanded statistics group will be expected to increase its interdisciplinary, applied and core research productivity, and foster growth in its teaching programs. In addition, the Division of Statistics and Data Science will play a key role in a new undergraduate degree program in data science (along with applied mathematics and computer science), which is scheduled to start in fall 2020. The Division of Statistics and Data Science has close ties with the applied and computational mathematics group and is very involved with interdisciplinary research.
