Assistant Professor of Statistics, Middlebury College, Middlebury, Vermont.

The Department of Mathematics invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor of statistics to begin in fall 2023. A PhD in statistics, data science, or a closely related field should normally be in hand by the time of appointment. Successful candidates will teach undergraduate courses at all levels---including the senior capstone seminar, the four-week winter term, and the first-year seminar program---and will contribute to advising and mentoring.

This addition to our faculty reflects the robust and growing interest in statistics and data science, both within our department and across the campus. Roughly 10% of all Middlebury College students enrolled in introductory data science last year. The new hire will contribute to expanding and shaping the departmental curriculum for majors and minors to pursue statistically oriented programs of study. Interdisciplinary collaborations are also available and encouraged by working in partnership with the midd.data initiative (https://www.middlebury.edu/office/midddata), which is a point of focus for the College's strategic vision. Candidates are invited to share how their interests and expertise can contribute to these ambitious goals.

Middlebury College is a top-tier liberal arts college with a demonstrated commitment to excellence in faculty teaching and research and where diversity, equity, and inclusion are core values. The College is committed to hiring a diverse faculty as we work to foster innovation in our curriculum and to provide a rich and varied educational experience to our increasingly diverse student body.To this end, the College recruits talented and diverse faculty, staff, and students from across the United States and around the world.
