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:

  • Applied Statistics, to contribute to AS&RU and to a newly established Centre for Applications of the Mathematical Sciences (CAMS) through applied research, engagement with external partners and delivery of outcome-driven research projects.
  • Data Science, broadly understood to include modern computational and theoretical statistics and machine learning.
  • Stochastic Finance. Applications at the interface of stochastic finance and data science/machine learning are particularly encouraged but welcome applications across the spectrum of Probability and Statistics, broadly interpreted, as described above.

The Department of Statistics is committed to promoting equality and diversity, holding an Athena SWAN Silver award which demonstrates this commitment. We welcome applicants from all sections of the community and will give due consideration to applicants seeking flexible working patterns, and to those who have taken a career break. Further information about working at the University of Warwick, including information about childcare provision, career development and relocation is at https://warwick.ac.uk/services/humanresources/workinghere/.

Informal enquires can be addressed to Professors Jon Forster (J.J.Forster@warwick.ac.uk) or Adam Johansen (A.M.Johansen@warwick.ac.uk) or to any other senior member of the Warwick Statistics Department.

Start date: flexible, although we would prefer the successful candidates to be in post by 1 September 2022.

It is expected that interviews will take place in February 2022.

All applicants should ensure that three referees send a letter of reference by email to Paula.Matthews@warwick.ac.uk (Department Administrator, Statistics, Warwick) by the closing date.
