The Department of Statistics at the University of Virginia (UVA), College and Graduate School of Arts & Sciences, invites applicants for two positions at the rank of Assistant Professor, General Faculty.
These positions are non-tenure track. One position will carry a three-year contract and the other will carry a one-year contract. Successful candidates will teach three courses per semester, typically with only one or two distinct course preparations. Other duties, in particular for the three-year candidate, include student advising, curriculum development, and other departmental and university service. Annual reviews are based primarily on teaching and service; professional activity that enhances teaching is strongly encouraged.
The area of specialization is open, but the Department is experiencing increased student demand in both statistics and computing, so we particularly welcome those whose teaching experience spans statistics, computing, and computational sciences.
The appointment begins in fall term of 2023. The salary is market-competitive, and optional summer teaching for additional compensation is usually available. Renewal is possible depending on annual reviews and Department needs, though it is not presently anticipated.
The Department of Statistics at UVA was established in 1999 and currently has 16 research and teaching faculty. The Department works closely with the Biostatistics Department at the Medical School, the Quantitative Collaborative (Social Sciences), the newly created School of Data Science, and other departments and schools. Faculty interests range from theoretical to applied statistics (including statistics in the social, medical, and physical sciences), and we supervise a growing number of students at all levels. The department offers Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Arts, Master of Science, and Ph.D. degrees in Statistics.
Applicants must have Ph.D. in Statistics, Biostatistics, or a related field, by start date. Previous teaching, grading, and/or tutoring experience, preferably in the context of a university that offers large undergraduate courses in statistics, is desirable.
