Position Description:    

The Department of Mathematical Sciences invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor position at the intersection of non-life insurance and data science. The position is open from 1 March 2021 or as soon as possible thereafter.

The tenure-track assistant professor’s duties primarily include research, including obligations with regard to publication/scientific communication and research-based teaching with associated examination obligations within actuarial mathematics and data science. Research and teaching obligations include activities with industrial partners in industry-related research projects and in our Continued Professional Development programme for the industry.

It is not necessary that applicants have done research in both of the areas of non-life insurance and data science, but they must be interested in and willing to do research and to teach in the border area between the two.

The tenure track assistant professor must have an academic standing showing internationally competitive research, have an internationally recognized potential for outstanding research achievements, have strong teaching credentials, and have aptitude to work on industry-related projects.

Assessment of applicants will primarily consider their level of documented, internationally competitive research. The ability to attract external funding will be considered together with outreach qualifications. Teaching qualifications are not mandatory but documented teaching qualifications and teaching experience will be considered.

The department is a leading mathematics institution with a vibrant international research environment that spans several areas of pure and applied mathematics. It has strong groups in, e.g., insurance mathematics, statistics and mathematical biology.

Further information on the Department is linked at Inquiries about the position can be made to the Head of Department Michael Sørensen,

The University wishes our staff to reflect the diversity of society and thus welcomes applications from all qualified candidates regardless of personal background.
