Dear Professor Swartz,

I am hoping that you might help us advertise an open position in the Department of Statistics at The Ohio State University by forwarding this email to graduate students in your program and others who you think would find the position to be of interest.  This open rank Associated Faculty / Data Analytics Program Specialist position will help support Ohio State University's undergraduate major in Data Analytics.

I have included the text of the position description below as well as a pdf version as an attachment.

Thank you in advance.

Major in Data Analytics:


The Department of Statistics in the College of Arts and Sciences at The Ohio State University invites applications for an Open Rank Faculty / Data Analytics Program Specialist position to begin in the autumn semester of 2016.

The focus of this non-tenure-track faculty position is the enhancement of student learning in the university’s new undergraduate Data Analytics major (http://data-analytics.osu.edu) through teaching and program support and development. We seek individuals who are committed to excellence in undergraduate teaching and education and have interests and expertise in areas of statistics related to data analytics.

This faculty position—which has been designed to allow a motivated individual to impact undergraduate education both inside and outside of the classroom—is a hybrid position that consists of a 45% appointment as a non-tenure-track faculty member and a 55% appointment as a data analytics program specialist. The faculty portion of the appointment entails teaching three to four undergraduate statistics courses per year (nine contact credit hours). The program specialist portion of the appointment entails, in conjunction with other statistics faculty, coordination and development of the major program.

For appointment at the associate or full level, applicants should have demonstrated ability for leadership in the practice of data analytics and in statistical pedagogy and academic program development at the undergraduate level. For appointment at the assistant level, applicants should have evidence of excellence in teaching at the undergraduate level and expertise in modern data analytic methods.

Candidates are expected to have a Ph.D. in Statistics (or related area) by August 16, 2016, and to present evidence of excellence in teaching and of expertise in statistical methodology related to data analytics.

Further information about the department can be found at http://www.stat.osu.edu/, and information about the undergraduate Data Analytics major can be found at http://data-analytics.osu.edu/.
