Subject: [d-ssc] Manitoba; Two Tenure-Track Positions in Statistics (Assistant & Assistant/Associate Professor)

The Department of Statistics at the University of Manitoba invites applications for two tenure-track positions—one (#13846) at the rank of Assistant Professor and the other  (#13847) at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor, commensurate with qualifications and experience.  The appointments will begin on July 1, 2012, or on a mutually agreed upon date.  Individuals with expertise in any area of statistics are encouraged to apply, although it would be an asset for a candidate to have research strengths in one or more areas identified in the Department’s strategic research plan.  These areas include biostatistics, computational statistics, environmental statistics, generalized linear models, spatial statistics, statistical image analysis and other areas that complement the existing research strengths of the Department. Candidates with strong records of collaboration with researchers in other disciplines are also encouraged to apply.  To be successful, a candidate must have a Ph.D. degree in statistics or a related discipline (or, for an Assistant Professor position, a Ph.D. degree to be completed by the starting date) and have a strong record or outstanding promise in both research and teaching.  Duties will include research, undergraduate and graduate teaching, student supervision, and service-related activities. An individual who is hired at the Associate Professor level will be expected to play a leadership role in research.
