Two Tenure-Track Positions in Statistics Announced at University of Michigan

The Department of Statistics at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, invites applications for two opportunities, to start on August 30, 2022.  One is a tenure-track assistant professor position, although exceptional candidates at higher ranks may be considered subject to additional approval from the administration.   The second opportunity is to apply through the  LSA Collegiate Fellows program for those eligible (see website for details); a tenure-track assistant professor offer can be made concurrently with a fellowship offer.   We strongly encourage eligible applicants to apply for both positions.

A Ph.D. in statistics or a related field is required. Applicants in all research areas of statistics and data science who have demonstrated outstanding research potential, excellence in teaching and commitment to diversity will be considered. For the collegiate fellow position, we especially encourage applications in the area of fairness in machine learning.

To apply, submit your curriculum vitae, a statement of current and future research plans, a statement of teaching philosophy and experience, evidence of teaching excellence, a statement demonstrating your commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, up to three selected publications, and arrange for three recommendation letters to be sent directly.  Apply directly to the Assistant Professor position on mathjobs.org (also upload your academic transcript) and to the Collegiate Fellow position on https://lsa.umich.edu/ncid/fellowships-awards/lsa-collegiate-postdoctoral-fellowship.html  (also upload your dissertation abstract, and limit selected publications to one).

Assistant professor position is a university-year (9 months) appointment.   Application deadline for both positions is November 1, 2021. 

We strongly encourage all qualified individuals and particularly women and minorities to apply.   The University of Michigan is supportive of the needs of dual career couples and is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.
