The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Jyväskylä in central Finland is a world class research institution training mathematicians and statisticians for diverse jobs in industry, education, and academic research. The main research areas in the department are mathematical analysis, geometry, stochastics, inverse problems, and statistics with their applications. In mathematical analysis and geometry the research is focused on geometric analysis, nonlinear partial differential equations, and geometry of metric groups. In stochastics the key research area is stochastic analysis. The research group in Inverse problems focuses its research on inverse problems in geometry and partial differential equations. These have applications e.g. in medical and industrial imaging. In statistics the main research areas are spatial statistics, time series analysis, nonparametric and robust multivariate methods, cost-efficient design, biometry and environmental statistics. The department is a member of the network of the Finnish Centre of Excellence in Inverse Problems. 

The main duties of the University Lecturer include teaching, research and supervision. It is also expected that lecturers take part in developing the department and actively apply for research funding.
