Department of Statistics, 24-29 St Giles, Oxford, OX1 3LB
The Department of Statistics is recruiting to four Florence Nightingale Bicentenary Fellow in Statistics posts. These are career development positions intended to carry around half the teaching load of an ordinary Oxford faculty position. The successful candidates would be expected to take up their roles by 1 September 2024 at the latest. Start-up funding of £2,000 per year will be available. These roles are fixed-term, with two available for five years, and two available for two years.
The postholders will join the dynamic and collaborative Department of Statistics. The Department carries out world-leading research in computational statistics, machine learning, theoretical statistics, and probability as well as applied statistics fields, including statistical finance (including arbitrage and market microstructure), statistical and population genetics, bioinformatics and statistical epidemiology.
The successful candidate will hold a relevant PhD/DPhil with post- qualification research experience in the area of statistics or a related subject. For Grade 7, the successful applicant is not required to have post- qualification research experience, but will hold or be close to completion of a relevant PhD/DPhil. They will have a strong publication record and sufficient specialist knowledge to develop research projects, along with effective teaching and supervision skills.
