This is an opportunity to join one of the world’s most prominent and most research active departments of Statistics at the Professor level.
We are looking for a world-leading academic in statistics (to be interpreted in the widest sense and to include both applied and methodological statistics, probability, probabilistic operational research and mathematical finance together with interdisciplinary topics involving one or more of these areas), but are particularly interested in strengthening our existing group in Data Science.
The Department is heavily involved in the Warwick Data Science Institute and the Alan Turing Institute, the national institute for data science, headquartered in London, created in 2015 by five founding universities – Cambridge, Edinburgh, Oxford, UCL and Warwick – and the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council. If interested, a successful candidate can spend part of their time at the Alan Turing Institute as a Faculty Fellow.
It is expected that interviews will take place in February, 2017.
Start date: flexible.
Informal enquires can be addressed to Professors Mark Steel (M.F.Steel@stats.warwick.ac.uk), David Firth (D.Firth@warwick.ac.uk), Saul Jacka (email@example.com) and Gareth Roberts (firstname.lastname@example.org) or to any other senior member of the Warwick Statistics Department.
