Statistics Tenure Track

Amherst College invites applications for a tenure-track position in statistics with an appointment to begin July 1, 2018. Within the last decade, Amherst College has profoundly transformed its student body in terms of socioeconomic status, ethnicity, and nationality, among other areas. Today, nearly one-quarter of Amherst’s students are Pell Grant recipients; 44 percent of our students are domestic students of color. Amherst College is an equal opportunity employer and encourages women, persons of color, and persons with disabilities to apply. The college is committed to enriching its educational experience and its culture through the diversity of its faculty, administration, and staff. Our expectation is that the successful candidate will excel at teaching and mentoring students who are broadly diverse with regard to race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, gender, nationality, sexual orientation, and religion.

Responsibilities include teaching two courses per semester, supervising undergraduate theses and comprehensive projects, and supporting the growing statistics program at the college. Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in statistics, biostatistics, data science or a related field, have broad intellectual interests and a strong commitment to research, and be passionate about teaching statistics to undergraduates at all levels. We seek colleagues actively engaged in research who can teach a wide range of courses and help foster the statistics and data science community at Amherst.   

Submit cover letter, curriculum vitae, research statement, teaching statement, and at least three letters of recommendation (including at least one that specifically addresses teaching) to MathJobs.Org. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled, but all applications received by October 8, 2017, will be guaranteed consideration.
