**Assistant Professor in Data Science/Statistics**

School of Mathematical Sciences, The University of Nottingham

Closing Date: Wednesday, 7th October 2020

Job Type: Research & Teaching - permanent post available from 04 Jan 2021.

Salary: £36914 to £49553 per annum (pro-rata if applicable) depending on skills and experience. Salary progression beyond this scale is subject to performance.

We are looking for an Assistant Professor to deliver outstanding teaching and research in Data Science or Statistics. This post, jointly funded for the first four years by Horizon (horizon.ac.uk) and the School of Mathematical Sciences (School of Mathematical Sciences - The University of Nottingham ), provides a pathway to a permanent academic position for an early-career researcher. The role-holder will initially focus on research within Horizon (horizon.ac.uk), with minimal teaching, then transition by the fourth year to working evenly between research within Horizon and teaching in Mathematical Sciences. After four years, the role-holder will become a permanent member of staff within the School of Mathematical Sciences, complementing and enhancing activity in the Statistics and Probability Section.

We are particularly seeking candidates with expertise in computational statistics, especially Bayesian methodology and applications, and machine learning, though we welcome applications from any candidates who can show how their expertise fits with the Horizon, the Statistics and Probability Section, and/or other research groups within the School of Mathematical Sciences. Importantly, candidates must be keen to bring their skills and experience into the interdisciplinary team within Horizon addressing the overall socio-technical challenges of the future Digital Economy. Applicants should hold (or shortly expect to receive) a PhD or equivalent in Statistics, Data Science or related area.

We believe that talented and inclusive teams deliver the highest quality research and are seeking applications from excellent candidates who enhance the diversity of our existing team. The School is committed to creating opportunities for people traditionally under-represented in Mathematical Sciences.

You will have a proven track record, or demonstrated potential, in publishing research of international quality in Statistics, Data Science or related area, and be able to evidence how you will:

- Develop research proposals to attract funding from Research Councils, Industry, EU, and other sources
- Contribute to disseminating research outputs at national/international conferences, workshops, and meetings
- Plan and deliver high quality teaching on Statistics modules
- Provide curriculum development within your own area of expertise and collaborate with colleagues to design modules and/or programmes
- Demonstrate excellent communication, organisation, interpersonal and time management skills
