Dear colleagues,

The ACMS department at Notre Dame is hiring two statistics professors, one tenured and one tenure-track.  The department strongly supports interdisciplinary and collaborative research, so researchers who focus on statistical applications in neuroscience are encouraged to apply.  Applications should be received by Dec 1.  See the full advertisement below.  

The University of Notre Dame has committed four new faculty positions to the Department of Applied and Computational Mathematics and Statistics (ACMS) to be filled over the next two years. Positions at both the junior and senior level are available. This year we seek to hire a statistician at the tenured level, and a statistician at the tenure-track level, in any areas of research that build on our existing activities. Preference will be given to applicants whose statistical research includes multi-disciplinary collaborations.

ACMS includes research groups in applied mathematics, statistics and computational science. The current fourteen faculty members have research interests in Bayesian statistics, statistical bioinformatics and high-dimensional data, finance, statistics in networks and Big Data, multiscale modeling of blood clotting and biofilms, mathematical modeling in cell biology and tumor growth, MEMS, and numerical and computational algorithms and computational neuroscience. ACMS offers a Bachelor of Science, a doctoral degree, a research masters degree and a professional masters degree. ACMS is a member of the College of Science.

The successful applicant must have a doctorate in statistics, biostatistics or a closely related field, and a record of success in both research and teaching. The teaching load in ACMS is 3 courses per year, and the position begins in August 2015. Applications received by December 1, 2014 will be given full consideration.

Applications, including a cover letter, curriculum vitae and research and teaching statements, should be filed through MathJobs (www.MathJobs.org). Applicants should also arrange for at least three letters of recommendation to be submitted through the MathJobs system. These letters should address the applicant's research accomplishments and supply evidence that the applicant has the ability to communicate articulately and teach effectively. Senior faculty are invited to contact the Department Chair, Steven Buechler, at buechler.1 at nd.edu, at any time.

Notre Dame is an equal opportunity employer, and we particularly welcome applications from women and minority candidates.
