This is an opportunity to join one of the world’s most prominent and most research-active Departments of Statistics at the Assistant Professor level.
The Department’s research spans a broad range of areas in statistical methodology, computational statistics, applied statistics, theoretical and applied probability, finance and interdisciplinary collaboration. Its teaching programmes attract exceptional students at all levels. It comprises around 800 undergraduate students on degree courses in MORSE, Mathematics and Statistics and Data Science and 120 postgraduate students on the MSc Statistics, MSc Mathematical Finance and PhD degree streams. Major strategic initiatives include the establishment of the Centre for Research in Statistical Methodology (CRiSM) as a catalyst for statistical research, the Applied Statistics & Risk Unit (AS&RU), which promotes and coordinates external partnerships, and the national Academy for PhD Training in Statistics (APTS). The Department has close relations with the co-located Mathematics Institute and Department of Computer Science and with other departments such as Economics and the Warwick Business School and is strongly engaged with the Alan Turing Institute in London.
We are looking for excellent academics in Statistics to be interpreted as including applied and methodological statistics, data science, machine learning, probability and mathematical finance together with interdisciplinary topics involving one or more of these areas. Four positions are available. We are particularly keen to make appointments in the following areas:
