Description:

The School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences at Clemson University invites applications for a Tenure-Track faculty position at the rank of Assistant Professor starting in the Fall 2024 semester. The position is geared towards individuals with expertise in spatial-temporal modeling, non-/semi-parametric high-dimensional regression, and with applications in climate studies or precision medicine. However, candidates with expertise and interests in emerging areas of statistics and data science will also be considered.

The successful candidate will be expected to teach courses in statistics and related areas typically covered by faculty within the Statistics and Operations Research Division of the School. Specific desirable attributes for candidates include a strong interest in collaborating with faculty members within the school and engaging in interdisciplinary work with subject-matter researchers throughout the University.

About the School & University

The School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences is dedicated to Clemson’s overall mission of discovery, learning, and engagement. The School’s faculty includes tenured/tenure-track faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and teaching-focused faculty, and fosters professional growth for all faculty. The School offers the full range of Baccalaureate, Master’s, and Doctoral degrees.

The School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences is organized into three Divisions:

• Statistics and Operations Research: includes faculty in Applied Statistics and Data Science, Operations Research, and Statistics and Probability.

• Mathematics: includes faculty in Algebra and Discrete Mathematics, Computational Mathematics, and Pure and Applied Analysis.

• Mathematics and Statistics Education: includes faculty in Mathematics Education and Statistics Education. Lecturers (of all ranks) belong to the Mathematics and Statistics Education division.

Clemson University has the highest Carnegie research designation (Very High, R1), and recently completed its Clemson Elevate plan with strategic focus on advancing our doctoral programs and strengthening our research and scholarly impact while still preserving the outstanding signature undergraduate experience that is at the heart of Clemson.

Clemson University is located at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains and surrounded by Lake Hartwell and the Clemson Experimental Forest. Clemson University provides a hands-on education — in the lab, in the classroom, and in the field. Academic programs lay the groundwork for innovative research, and real-world experiences carry forward to rewarding careers. The strikingly beautiful campus enjoys a temperate and pleasant climate. We welcome applications and nominations of outstanding scholar-educators to come join the Clemson Family.

The College of Science advances the life, physical, and mathematical and statistical sciences as it mobilizes curiosity-driven faculty and students through innovative academic programs and research, including transdisciplinary research at the intersection of many fields.

Organization

Working at Clemson University

Clemson is a dynamic research university located in Upstate South Carolina at the center of the booming I-85 corridor between Charlotte, N.C., and Atlanta, Ga. One of the nation’s most selective public research universities according to U.S. News & World Report and The Princeton Review, Clemson University is the school of choice among top students in South Carolina and is increasingly competitive for the best students in the region and the nation. More than 17,100 students select from 70 undergraduate and 100 graduate degree programs through five academic colleges: Agriculture, Forestry and Life SciencesArchitecture, Arts and HumanitiesBusiness and Behavioral ScienceEngineering and Science; and Health, Education and Human Development.

Clemson’s transformation into a leading research institution — currently attracting in excess of $140 million in externally funded research and sponsored program awards per year — is based upon an academic plan that identifies eight emphasis areas in which the University has opportunities to increase education and research, to align with South Carolina’s economic development needs and to draw upon faculty strengths. Emphasis areas include automotive and transportation technology, advanced materials, biotechnology and biomedical sciences, leadership and entrepreneurship, sustainable environment, information and communication technology, family and community living, and general education.

Major economic development initiatives that have emerged from the academic plan include the Clemson International Center for Automotive Research — a 250-acre campus in Greenville, which has generated more than $225 million in public and private commitments in just four years; an advanced materials initiative at the Clemson Research Park, which includes a new LEED Silver-certified facility; and the South Carolina Health Sciences Collaborative — an initiative of the state’s three research universities and major health-care systems.

As the state’s land-grant university, Clemson reaches out to citizens, communities and businesses all over South Carolina. The Public Service Activities division includes the county-based Cooperative Extension Service, five off-campus research and education centers through the Clemson University Experiment Station and critical regulatory responsibilities for plant and animal health.

The University boasts a 1,400-acre campus on the shores of Lake Hartwell within view of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Surrounding the campus are 18,000 acres of University farms and woodlands devoted to research. A warm campus environment, great weather and recreational activities offered by proximity to both the natural surroundings and large cities are part of the Clemson Experience.

 

Points of interest at Clemson include the following:

The Clemson Conference Center and Inn is a state-of-the-art facility for symposia, meetings, seminars and special events. The complex includes the Madren Continuing Education and Conference Center, the Walker Golf Course and the Martin Inn.

The South Carolina Botanical Garden, a 295-acre public garden, features several thousand varieties of ornamental plants and a unique collection of nature-based sculptures.

The Robert Howell Brooks Center for the Performing Arts brings an exciting array of concert, theater, dance, comedy and other live performances to the community.

The Robert Campbell Geology Museum at the Botanical Garden displays meteorites, minerals, dinosaur fossils and the largest faceted-stone collection in the Southeast.

The T. Ed Garrison Livestock Arena is a showplace for livestock activities in the state and has hosted horse and livestock shows, rodeos, sales, 4-H activities, educational programs, and industrial and agricultural exhibitions.

Fort Hill, the home of John C. Calhoun and later of his son-in-law, University founder Thomas Green Clemson, is a registered National Historic Landmark located in the center of campus.

The Class of 1944 Visitors Center is the front door to Clemson — a friendly place to get tours, information, assistance and an introduction to this beautiful, historic university and community.
