OVERALL PURPOSE OF THE JOB:
Teaching and Research in Statistics & Data Analytics.
We are seeking to fill two positions, a Lecturer and a Lecturer below the bar in Statistics & Data Analytics in the Department of Mathematics & Statistics. The department is responsible for teaching mathematics and statistics at all levels across the University, and also has a thriving research programme in applied mathematics and statistics. In December 2015 the department was successful in obtaining an Athena SWAN Bronze award, one of the first departmental awards given in the county, which demonstrates its commitment to addressing gender equality.
Research interests in the department include the development of statistical and applied mathematical methods (and hybrids thereof) for a range of real-world applications. Examples of specific statistical topics include Bayesian modelling, functional data analysis, survival analysis, mixed effect models, and meta analyses, but further linking between statistics and applied mathematics, e.g., as part of MACSI (the Mathematics Applications Consortium for Science and Industry), would be particularly welcome.
Applicants are invited from any area of statistics with particular relevance to data analytics. The successful candidate’s will have a doctoral degree (level 10NFQ) in statistics, data analytics or a closely related area, a track record in research and publication in any area of statistics and data analytics and should demonstrate a commitment to teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Experience of working in collaborative and interdisciplinary projects is also desirable, as is an awareness of how their work can impact more broadly on industry and society, and an ability to demonstrate this.
The successful candidate’s will be required to contribute to the delivery and organisation of teaching their subject within the Department of Mathematics & Statistics, both at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and to develop a research programme which complements existing research themes within the department in the area(s) of statistics and data analytics.
Other relevant duties commensurate with the grade of the post as may be assigned by the Head of the Department.
