Tenure Track, Open Rank Professor Position

The Department of Statistical Science at Duke University invites applications for tenure-track appointments at any level, beginning in Fall 2017. Appointments will be made in connection with the Quantitative Initiative at Duke. Preference will be given to candidates whose core statistical science research interests are complemented by applied and collaborative research interests in priority areas for the department, including macroeconomics and policy sciences, finance and business, genetics/genomics and neuroscience. Applicants whose interests interact with mathematics, computer science and the environmental sciences are also encouraged.
 
The Department is an internationally recognized center of excellence for research and education in contemporary statistical methodology. With leading strengths in Bayesian analysis, interdisciplinary applications and computationally intensive methods, the Department offers outstanding computational facilities and opportunities for interdisciplinary research. We currently have 20 regular rank faculty, 16 visiting, adjunct, and postdoctoral faculty, and over 100 graduate students. Beyond core research in theory and methodology of statistical and computational sciences, collaborative interactions exist with a range of Duke departments, institutes and centers, including the Information Initiative at Duke (iiD), Duke Institute for Brain Sciences (DIBS), and Social Science Research Institute (SSRI). Complementary interactions involve long-standing associations with the Statistical and Applied Mathematical Sciences Institute (SAMSI) and the National Institute of Statistical Science (NISS), and with institutes and companies around the US and worldwide.  The PhD program is complemented by our MS and BA/BS degrees in Statistical Science.
