The Carleton College Department of Mathematics and Statistics anticipates hiring a Visiting Assistant Professor in Statistics for a one-year appointment to begin September 1, 2023.

Responsibilities include teaching six statistics courses (spread out over our calendar of three ten-week terms) and participating in departmental discussions on our evolving statistics program. The department, which includes four statisticians, offers a major in statistics. We offer unique undergraduate opportunities including research experiences and a statistical consulting class in which students work in teams on data analysis projects solicited from the local community.

Carleton is a highly selective liberal arts college with a student body of approximately 2,000. Located in the thriving two-college town of Northfield, Minnesota, it is forty-five miles from the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, in easy reach of a vibrant metropolitan area that is home to three million people and rich cultural resources. The fourteen-member Department of Mathematics and Statistics resides in a modern building with excellent facilities including a dedicated computing lab. The faculty is passionate about teaching and active in scholarship. We are particularly interested in applicants who will contribute to a vibrant college-wide culture of undergraduate research, and who have a commitment to attracting and retaining students from underserved groups.
