Could you please forward this opportunity to anyone who you think might be interested. 







Tenured/Tenure-Track Positions: Three Assistant Professors and One Open Rank


The Department of Statistics in the College of Arts and Sciences at The Ohio State University invites applications for three tenure track assistant professor positions and an open rank position, to begin effective Autumn Semester 2016. We seek energetic researchers in areas of modern statistical methods, computation, and data analysis with preference for expertise as follows:

For the open-rank position, expertise in statistics and machine learning. An appointment at the associate or full professor level should have a demonstrated record of scholarly leadership. The assistant professor positions span a range of areas.  One position is directed toward environmental analytics; the second position is directed toward predictive modeling for biological applications; the third position is directed toward the design and/or statistical modeling of computer experiments. In all cases, commitments to both methodological research and scientific collaboration are required. Interests in applications to decision analysis in the presence of uncertainty, complex systems, including physical and biological systems as well as those involving human behavior and well-being are of special interest. Faculty members are expected to be dedicated to the development and delivery of educational programs at all levels. Experience working in interdisciplinary teams and mentoring members of underrepresented groups is a plus.

All positions are aligned with Ohio State's Discovery Themes Initiative, a significant faculty hiring investment in key thematic areas in which the university can build on its culture of academic collaboration to make a global impact:  http://discovery.osu.edu/


Candidates are expected to have a Ph.D. in Statistics, or a related area, by the start of Autumn Semester 2016, and to present evidence of excellence in teaching and in both methodological and collaborative research. Further information about the department can be found at http://www.stat.osu.edu/
