Assistant Professor of Statistics
Whitman College

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics seeks applicants for a Tenure-track position beginning August 2023, with expertise in Statistics, at the rank of assistant professor. Applicants must have a Ph.D. by the start of the position.  

The successful candidate will offer courses across the undergraduate statistics curriculum (e.g. Introductory Statistics, Statistical Modeling, Probability Theory)  as well as courses that contribute to the College's general education requirements. The standard annual teaching load is five courses. The department offers majors in mathematics, a newly developed mathematics-statistics combined major, as well as combined majors in mathematics-economics and mathematics-physics.  We have also launched an interdisciplinary minor in Data Science. The new hire will have flexibility in designing courses within our curriculum as well as their own specialty courses. The department welcomes ideas for developing interdisciplinary courses (e.g. Statistics and Justice, Sports and Statistics, Statistics and the Life Sciences). We also require a semester-long project for all of our majors and place a high premium on student-faculty research. The College provides a generous pre-tenure sabbatical leave program and professional development support for both research and teaching.

Whitman College is committed to cultivating an inclusive learning community. Applicants should be able to demonstrate their commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion and articulate how their classroom and scholarly practices work to advance antiracism in the learning environment. This statement can be included in the cover letter or the teaching statement. In their cover letter, candidates should address their interest in working at a small college with undergraduates, majors as well as non-majors, at all levels of instruction.  

Located in the historic community of Walla Walla, Whitman's beautiful tree-lined campus is home to an intellectually diverse, dynamic, and supportive community of some 500 staff and faculty serving roughly 1,500 students from the local region and across the globe.
