*** this position has been closed. ***

The Department of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences at the University of Alberta invites applications for a tenure-track position in the area of Statistics, at the Assistant or Associate Professor level. The position is restricted to qualified individuals who self-identify as persons of Black African or Black Caribbean descent and lived experience. Though priority is given to statisticians, exceptional candidates in Mathematics will be considered.

We offer an excellent research environment with a normal teaching load of 2.5 courses per year. The successful candidate will establish his/her own research program, supervise graduate students, and teach at both the graduate and undergraduate levels.

This hire is part of a major initiative by the University of Alberta to diversify the institution’s professoriate through an inclusive excellence initiative that includes hiring up to eleven Black scholars across a range of disciplines and faculties. This cohort hire is designed to make an immediate and substantive contribution to advancing Black academic excellence at the University of Alberta. A commitment to recruiting and retaining an increasingly diverse group of excellent scholars is essential to addressing the cumulative impacts of biases and inequalities that have stood in the way of inclusive excellence. This is part of the University of Alberta’s ongoing commitment to equity, diversity and inclusivity.
