Exceptional candidates are sought in applied probability and related areas. Priority areas include exact distribution theory, statistical inference for stochastic processes, financial mathematics, stochastic control, optimal stopping, and time series analysis. A typical candidate will be an early- or mid-career scholar with an exceptional record of publications in first-tier probability and statistics journals and/or of funding from federal sources, in several of these areas. A nationally established record of excellence is essential. Evidence of international reach is desirable, and strength in this area is essential for the rank of Full Professor. Exceptional candidates in other areas of the statistical sciences and probability will be considered. Evidence of past work and/or plans for real-world applications including data analysis will be appreciated. Potential areas of application include, but are not limited to, the environmental sciences and climate change, human medicine, operations research, quantitative finance, and actuarial science.
Doctorate -Statistics or closely related discipline
Exceptional research program, evidence of high-quality teaching in undergraduate and/or graduate level statistics courses.
Priority areas include exact distribution theory, statistical inference for stochastic processes, financial mathematics, stochastic control, optimal stopping, and time series analysis.
Required Application Materials
Online application is required. To complete the online application, please go to https://www.mathjobs.org/ (position ID#13148). Applications should include a cover letter, a full CV, a statement of research achievements and plans of no more than 4 pages, not including references, and a teaching statement of no more than 2 pages, all in a single PDF file. Since this is a position with tenure, for all applicants, a list of no more than 10 and no less than 5 names of references should be included as the last pages of the CV. Reference letters from no more than 5 individuals from this list will be obtained by STT at MSU for any finalist for this position.
