The Department is seeking applications from qualified individuals whose research complements that of the existing Statistics faculty and has relevance to biostatistics and/or the modeling of complex systems. Successful candidates will be expected to undertake an active program of research that leads to publication and/or presentation in peer- reviewed scholarly outlets and, where available, to seek extramural funding for that research.

These positions provide outstanding opportunities for collaborative/interdisciplinary research with the Larner College of Medicine, the UVM Cancer Center, the Vermont Complex Systems Center, the UVM Transportation Research Center, the Vermont Advanced Computing Core, and the Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources.

We are seeking candidates with demonstrated interest and expertise in any area of biostatistics. The successful candidate will have strong training, ability to maintain an excellent research program, interest in undertaking collaborative research with other groups at UVM, and potential to secure extramural funding. The ability to teach a variety of undergraduate and graduate statistics courses, and the potential to supervise graduate students, is required. A competitive startup package is available.

Assistant Professor of Statistics (tenure track, 9-month appointment) Candidates are required to have a doctorate in biostatistics, epidemiology or a related discipline, and a research focus on infectious diseases of global significance.
