The Mathematics Department at Bucknell University invites applications for two tenure-track faculty positions in Statistics, to begin August 1, 2022. We typically hire at the Assistant Professor level, but outstanding candidates will be considered at the Associate Professor or Professor level. Finalists for this position who wish to be considered for tenure upon appointment will be asked to submit a complete tenure dossier. Qualifications for the positions include a Ph.D. in Statistics, Biostatistics, Data Science, or a closely related field, a strong commitment to teaching, and a high potential for research. We seek teacher-scholars who will contribute to the department’s focus on inclusiveness and the liberal arts mission, and who display a strong commitment to collaboration and interdisciplinarity. The successful candidates will join a team of four other statisticians teaching a variety of statistics courses while maintaining an active research program.

Applications include a curriculum vita, graduate transcripts (unofficial copies accepted), a teaching statement, a research statement including a section addressing opportunities for undergraduate research, and a diversity statement including experiences and leadership in diversity, equity, and inclusion, or the potential to make contributions in these areas. Please submit these and all other supporting materials electronically at mathjobs.org. Please arrange for three letters of recommendation (at least one of which addresses teaching beyond what may be found in student evaluations) to be uploaded at mathjobs.org. Review of applications will begin no later than October 11, 2021, and will continue until the positions are filled. Bucknell University is a private, highly ranked, primarily undergraduate, national liberal arts institution that also offers strong professional programs in engineering, management, education, and music.

Bucknell is an Equal Opportunity Employer. The university 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. We seek candidates who are committed to Bucknell’s efforts to create a climate that fosters inclusion, growth, and development for a diverse student body, and we encourage applications from members of groups that have been historically underrepresented in higher education. Bucknell is committed to supporting the teacher-scholar model of faculty development. The teaching load is five courses per year. The university sponsors a range of activities to support the development of its faculty, including a Teaching-Learning Center and generous research support and leave policies. Bucknell has entered a partnership with Geisinger Health System to promote research and educational collaborations.
