In the past days, I received emails about two openings in statistics, in the beautiful and attractive [if geographically opposed!] cities of Bath, Britain, and Vancouver, British Columbia, and in two great departments:

  • The Department of Mathematical Sciences, University of Bath, UK is inviting applications for the posts of Professor of Statistics and Lecturer/Senior Lecture/Reader in Statistics. Deadline for application is Monday 16 October 2017.
  • The Department of Statistics at the University of British Columbia (UBC) invites applications from outstanding new investigators for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor. Computational Statistics is targeted as a priority area for the search. Deadline for application is November 1, 2017.

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!
