sunrise on the road to Kenilworth, May 7, 2014Seven academic positions in Statistics are currently opening at the University of Warwick! They correspond to the following levels, all permanent but for the Harrison Early-Career Assistant Professorship:

• Harrison Early-Career Assistant Professor of Statistics (3 years)
• Assistant Professor of Statistics
• Senior Teaching Fellow in Statistics
• Assistant or Associate Professor of Financial Mathematics
• Assistant or Associate Professor of Statistics (two positions)
• Full Professor of Statistics

Applicants are sought with expertise in Statistics (in the wide sense, including both applied and methodological statistics, probability, probabilistic operational research and mathematical finance together with interdisciplinary topics involving one or more of these areas). Applicants for senior positions should have an excellent publication record and ability to secure research funding. Applicants for more junior positions should show exceptional promise to become leading academics. [More details.]

Informal enquires should be addressed to any of Professors Mark Steel, David Hobson, Gareth Roberts, Wilfrid Kendall, or to any other senior member of the Department. Including me. The closing date is 3 January 2017 for all positions, except for the Full Professor position which is set to 10 January 2017.

As a completely objective observer (!), I can state that this is a fantastic department, with a strong sense of community and support among the faculty, and a tremendously diverse array of research activities and topics. And thus encourage anyone interested in joining to apply for some of those positions!

Dan Simpson pointed out to me the still open call for an assistant/associate professor (lecturer/reader) position in mathematical statistics at the University of Bath, Southwest England (Somerset to be exact), with a closing date of April 22, i.e., next week. Beside being located in a lovely town on a beautiful campus, this is certainly “a pretty great place to be an early career researcher” to quote from Dan, with an attractive PhD program. Check this link for details. [And you may notice I wisely abstained from cracking any joke about position in bath…]
