*Two Lectureships in Statistics *

*School of Mathematics, University of Edinburgh*

*Closing date: 1st February 2016*

The School of Mathematics at the University of Edinburgh is looking to appoint two new lectureships in statistics as part of the ongoing expansion of the statistics group. The School has over 50 permanent members of academic staff and over twenty research fellows/associates across a broad range of research areas in applied mathematics, operations research, pure mathematics and statistics. Research in statistics within the School is led by Professor Ruth King, holder of the Thomas Bayes’ Chair of Statistics. The research interests of the group include Bayesian inference, computer-intensive methods, hidden process models, statistical emulators, inverse problems and extreme value theory with applications across a wide-spectrum of areas, including the physical, biological and environmental sciences.

Applicants should hold a PhD in Statistics, or closely related discipline, and be able to demonstrate an outstanding research record in any area of statistics, including mathematical, methodological and applied statistics. Applicants will have the opportunity to contribute to the continuing development of the University of Edinburgh into an international centre of excellence in statistics, to deliver high quality undergraduate and postgraduate level lectures, and to take part in some of the administration of the School. Applicants will be expected to interact with existing statistical activities within the University of Edinburgh and with the mathematical sciences as represented in the University of Edinburgh and Heriot-Watt University through the Maxwell Institute, and to play an active role within The Alan Turing Institute (a major EPSRC-sponsored centre for Data Science).
