Positions in Statistics

The Williams College Department of Mathematics and Statistics invites applications for two tenure track positions in statistics, beginning fall 2016, at the rank of assistant professor (in an exceptional case, a more advanced appointment may be considered).  We are seeking highly qualified candidates who have demonstrated excellence in teaching and research and who are committed to working with an increasingly diverse student body.  The candidates will become the fourth and fifth tenure-track statisticians in the department, joining a vibrant and active statistics group with a newly established statistics major.  The teaching load is two courses per 12-week semester and a winter term course every other January.  In addition to excellence in teaching, an active and successful research program is expected.  The candidate should have a Ph.D. by the time of appointment.  We welcome applications from members of groups traditionally underrepresented in the field.

Candidates may apply via interfolio.com by uploading their vita and having three letters of recommendation on teaching and research uploaded to http://apply.interfolio.com/30206.  Teaching and research statements are also welcome.  Evaluations of applications will begin on or after November 15 and will continue until the position is filled.  All offers of employment are contingent upon completion of a background check.  Further information is available upon request.  For more information on the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, visit http://.math.williams.edu/.
