We welcome applicants in any areas of Statistics and Data Science, in particular but not limited to Mathematical Statistics, Computational Statistics, Medical Statistics, Statistical and Machine Learning, Optimization and AI for Science (e.g., Scientific Machine Learning and Data-driven Modelling). Applicants for the Associate Professor posts are typically expected to have a track-record of successful external research funding. The School is a supportive and people-focused friendly environment, committed to equality, diversity and inclusivity, which aims to allow colleagues to develop as researchers and educators. We encourage applications from the widest community and provide equal opportunities in our recruitment processes. The School of Mathematics holds an Athena SWAN Bronze award, supports the London Mathematical Society Good Practice Scheme and is a member of the Piscopia. The University of Birmingham holds the Advance HE's Race Equality Charter Bronze award, a framework through which we are working to self-reflect, identify and remove barriers standing in the way of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic staff and students.
