This is an opportunity to join one of the world’s most prominent and most research-active Departments of Statistics as a Harrison Assistant Professor. This 3-year fixed-term post is part of a rolling programme of Harrison early-career posts. The appointment will carry a lower teaching load and is intended for applicants with evidence or promise of world-class research excellence in statistics (to be interpreted in the widest sense and to include both applied and methodological statistics, data science, machine learning, probability and mathematical finance together with interdisciplinary topics involving one or more of these areas). Previous holders of Harrison posts have typically progressed to permanent academic positions at top institutions, including Warwick.

The Department of Statistics is one of the most successful departments at the University of Warwick. Its 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.

The Department of Statistics is committed to promoting equality and diversity, holding an Athena SWAN Bronze award which demonstrates this commitment.
