We are looking for first class researchers to enhance or complement those strengths, who are self-starting, and have a keen interest in statistics as part of the scientific process of figuring out how the world works. The role will also include the supervision of student projects and involvement in assessment of students, helping to develop courses and programmes where this is appropriate, and teaching related administration. The School takes career development seriously, and will provide appropriately tailored mentoring in both research and teaching.

A PhD in Statistics (or closely related discipline) and some experience of teaching statistics at University level is essential, as well as being able to demonstrate independence, effective team working, good communication and interpersonal skills.
