The Faculty of Mathematics at Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (UC Chile) invites applications for two (2) full time positions in its Department of Statistics at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor starting in March or August of 2024. Candidates in all areas of Theoretical and Applied Statistics are encouraged to apply.

 

Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile is among the top universities in Latin America and its Faculty of Mathematics is the academic unit responsible for the development and promotion of Mathematics and Statistics. It has a large academic body that has grown significantly in the last few years, diversifying the scope of its areas, and attracting young researchers from around the world. We provide a rich research environment and plenty of resources to support our professors. Moreover, the National Agency for Research and Development (ANID) offers individual research grants on a competitive basis. UC supports these applications, and our proposals enjoy a high degree of success. 

 

The teaching load is 3 courses per year, distributed over two semesters. Command of Spanish is not required for applying; however, the selected candidate is expected to start teaching in Spanish during her/his second year at UC. Applicants who do not speak Spanish will receive support by the University to learn the language at an adequate level. 

 

To support the initial stages of the academic career, the incorporations as Assistant Professors can benefit from an initial reduction of the teaching load in addition to a starting fund. 

 

Applicants must hold a Ph.D. degree in Statistics, or equivalent, a strong record of publications in their area of research and sufficient teaching experience at the university level. Depending on the experience of each applicant, other aspects of the academic performance may be considered during the selection process, such as service and outreach. The salary offered is competitive. The applicant's position and salary will be adjusted according to the policies and regulations at the starting date of the applicant. These will be determined according to the previous experience of the candidate.

 

Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile is committed to the values of diversity regarding the origin, gender, and ethnicity to build a more diverse and inclusive community. For the current call, women are especially encouraged to apply.
