Fixed-term contract for 3 years starting on 1 September 2023, 1.0 FTE.

This is an opportunity to join one of the world’s most prominent and most research-active Departments of Statistics as a CRiSM Research Fellow. This 3-year research fellowship is part of a rolling programme arising from university investment in CRiSM, a research centre of the Department of Statistics which acts as a catalyst for research across the breadth of the Department. The Department’s research spans a broad range of areas in applied, computational, methodological and theoretical statistics, data science, machine learning, theoretical and applied probability, finance and interdisciplinary collaboration. Other strategic initiatives include 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 seeking applicants who have evidence or promise of world-class research excellence in Statistics, to be interpreted in the widest sense as above. The CRiSM fellowship is designed to allow an excellent early-career academic to develop their own high-quality research programme, with mentoring provided by Warwick colleagues. Previous holders of CRiSM fellowships have typically progressed to permanent academic positions at top institutions, including Warwick.

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 here.

If you are near submission or have recently submitted your PhD but have not yet had it conferred, any offers of employment will be made as Research Assistant at the top of level 5 of the University grade structure (£31,411). Upon receipt of evidence of the successful award of your PhD, you will be promoted to Research Fellow on the first point of level 6 of the University grade structure (£32,348).

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.

As part of the application, applicants are expected to submit a research plan, of up to 3 pages, detailing their planned research programme for the duration of the fellowship. Applicants should also ask their referees to send letters of recommendation in advance of the closing date to Paula.Matthews@warwick.ac.uk.

Interview Date: TBC.
