Lecturer in Statistics

Closing date : 29/08/2014
Reference : E&PS-04479
Faculty / Organisational unit : Engineering & Physical Sciences 
School / Directorate : School of Mathematics 
Division : Mathematics General Admin 
Employment type : Permanent
Location : Oxford Road, Manchester
Salary : £33,562 to £46,400 per annum
Hours per week : Full Time

 

Applications are invited for two Lectureships in Statistics, with interests in any area of statistics, who will help to enhance and extend the School's expertise and capacity in this area, both through teaching (at undergraduate and postgraduate level) and research (including the supervision of PhD students).  This forms a part of a number of strategic appointments to strengthen the statistics in the School of Mathematics.

At present, the School has eight permanent members of staff in statistics who are part of the Probability and Statistics Group, but there are also close links with statisticians elsewhere in the University, particularly those in the School of Community-Based Medicine and the School of Social Sciences; the Probability and Statistics Group also has strong ties with Manchester Business School.

The main duties of the posts will lie in teaching and research. The former will include teaching undergraduate and postgraduate students by means of lectures, seminars, tutorials and examples classes, continually developing teaching material and learning experiences for students and acting as academic advisor to undergraduate students in accordance with the School’s current practice.

You will be expected to undertake high-quality research in relevant areas and publish the results in world-leading journals, books or similar organs and make applications for research grants and funding.

You should have a PhD or equivalent relevant experience and are expected to be a recognised researcher in a relevant area of statistics or, if in an earlier career stage, to show exceptional promise and ability; have a record of original high-impact research, as evidenced by publications in internationally-leading journals or, if at an earlier career stage, show very strong potential to do so; be willing and able to supervise postgraduate research students.
