Applications are sought from candidates with a track record of methodological statistics research arising from real-world challenges. We particularly encourage applications from those with established collaborations in the medical, environmental or social sciences. You should have a proven track-record of publishing research work of international quality and demonstrate a clear potential for attracting research funding and research studentships.
This is an exciting time to be joining one of the largest and strongest Statistics groups in the UK, comprising 25 academic staff, 10 research associates and over 40 FTE research students. In the 2014 UK-wide assessment of research (REF), Mathematical Sciences at Lancaster was ranked fifth overall and third in terms of the impact of its research. The Statistics group has a vibrant research environment playing a lead role in major research activities including the EPSRC-funded StatScale and i-like Programme Grants (www.statscale.org; www.i-like.org.uk). The department is also one of the key partners in Lancaster’s thriving Data Science Institute (www.lancs.ac.uk/dsi) which has core themes focusing on health; environment and society.
In collaboration with the Department of Management Science, we host the EPSRC-funded Centre for Doctoral Training in Statistics and Operational Research in partnership with industry, STOR-i (www.stor-i.lancs.ac.uk). The Statistics group is actively involved with the ESRC North West Social Science DTP (www.nwdtc.ac.uk/) and the Medical and Pharmaceutical Statistics unit leads the EU-funded research training network IDEAS (www.ideas-itn.eu). These programmes build on flourishing undergraduate and masters-level programmes in Statistics.
The Department provides a research environment that strongly supports the individual needs of each member, promoting a healthy work-life balance. To help you grow into the role, we offer reduced teaching load for the first three years. We are committed to family-friendly and flexible working policies on an individual basis, as well as the Athena SWAN Charter, which recognises and celebrates good employment practice undertaken to address gender equality in higher education and research.
Informal enquiries can be made to: Prof Andrey Lazarev (Head of Department) firstname.lastname@example.org or Prof Peter Neal (Head of Statistics) email@example.com.
This post is available from 1 September 2017 or as soon as possible thereafter.
