The Department of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences at the University of Alberta invites applications for a tenure-track position in the area of Statistics.  Appointment at a higher level may be possible under exceptional circumstances.  We offer an excellent research environment with a normal teaching load of 2.5 courses per year.

The University of Alberta has one of the leading joint Mathematics/Statistics departments in Canada and has strong connections with other scientific institutes, such as the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences (PIMS), Mathematics of Information Technology and Complex Systems (MITACS), and the Banff International Research Station (BIRS).  For more information about the Department, please visit our websites at www.mathstats.ualberta.ca and www.stat.ualberta.ca/stat_centre/.
