The Department of Mathematics at Bucknell University invites applications for a tenure-track, open-rank position in statistics, beginning August 2014. Qualifications for the position include a Ph.D. (which is preferred to an ABD, but the latter is considered) in statistics or another field of the mathematical sciences, a solid background in statistics, strong commitment to teaching statistics, and high potential for research. The successful candidate will teach a variety of statistics courses, maintain an active research program, and contribute to the department’s focus on effectively serving a diverse student body.
Bucknell is a private, highly selective, primarily undergraduate university of about 3500 students. Its broad curriculum in the liberal arts is complemented by strong professional programs in engineering, education, music, and management. The University is situated in the picturesque and historic town of Lewisburg, on the banks of the Susquehanna River in central Pennsylvania. Bucknell University, an Equal Opportunity Employer, believes that students learn best in a diverse, inclusive community and is therefore committed to academic excellence through diversity in its faculty, staff, and students. Thus, we seek candidates who are committed to Bucknell’s efforts to create a climate that fosters the growth and development of a diverse student body. We welcome applications from members of groups that have been historically underrepresented in higher education.
Applications include curriculum vitae, graduate transcripts (unofficial copies accepted), a research statement, and a teaching statement. Please submit these and all other supporting materials electronically at mathjobs.org. Please arrange for three letters of recommendation (at least one of which should address teaching) to be uploaded at mathjobs.org. The application deadline is December 2, 2013 although late responses may be considered.
