Opportunities are available to participate in both funded research and unfunded graduate student research, including serving on dissertation committees in other departments. New faculty members are supported in a variety of ways, such as course releases, opportunities to pursue internal funding to support research, travel funds, a relocation package, and tuition benefits. Because we seek a community with a wide range of perspectives, we encourage all interested candidates to apply.

The University of Dayton is a Catholic and Marianist institution founded in 1850 by the Society of Mary. At the University of Dayton, we value the diversity in experiences and perspectives of all community members because doing so is vital to advancing innovation, critical thinking, solving complex problems, and creating an inclusive academic community. We translate these values into action by seeking individuals who have experience working with diverse students, colleagues, and constituencies. Because we seek a community with a wide range of perspectives, we encourage all interested candidates to apply.

The person filling this tenure-track position is expected to bring to the department expertise in an area of statistics. The successful candidate is expected to maintain an active research agenda in an area of statistics and to collaborate with researchers within the department, the university, and/or the wider community when opportunities arise. The candidate is expected to participate in the life and development of the Department of Mathematics, and to work with students from diverse backgrounds both in the classroom and on research and capstone projects, as opportunities present themselves. The teaching load consists of three courses per semester including service courses populated primarily by non-majors, upper-level undergraduate courses for mathematics and other STEM majors, as well as graduate courses in statistics. The candidate is expected to support the curriculum of the department’s newly created Data Analytics Minor. The successful candidate is also expected to mentor and advise undergraduate or graduate students as opportunities arise.
