Assistant Professor of Statistics, Middlebury College, MIDDLEBURY, VERMONT.
The Department of Mathematics invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor of statistics to begin in fall 2022. A PhD in statistics or a closely related field should normally be in hand by the time of appointment. Successful candidates will advise, mentor, and teach undergraduate courses at all levels including the senior seminar, first-year seminar program, and winter term.
This addition to our faculty is a reflection of the robust interest in statistics and data science, both from within our department and across the campus. Roughly 10% of all Middlebury College students enrolled in introductory data science last year. The new hire will contribute to expanding and shaping the departmental curriculum for majors and minors to pursue statistically oriented programs of study. Interdisciplinary collaborations are also available and encouraged by working in partnership with the midd.data initiative (https://www.middlebury.edu/office/midddata
), which is a point of focus for the College's strategic vision. Candidates are invited to share how their interests and expertise can contribute to these ambitious goals.
Located in the scenic Champlain Valley of western Vermont, Middlebury College is a top-tier liberal arts college with a demonstrated commitment to excellence in faculty teaching and research. An Equal Opportunity Employer, the College is committed to hiring a diverse faculty as we work to foster innovation in our curriculum and to provide a rich and varied educational experience for our increasingly diverse student body.
