The Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Bath is inviting applications for two professorial appointments in Statistics and its applications in all areas, including Uncertainty Quantification, Data Science, Machine Learning, Evolution, Public Health and Operational Research.

Applicants must have a strong research vision, and a track record of engagement within their Department and across the wider statistical community. Applicants are expected to have an excellent track record of publications and research grant acquisition, commensurate to their stage of career, as well as a keen interest in pursuing excellence in teaching and in supervising graduate students. Key attributes are strategic leadership and the ability to influence and shape the output and success of the Department, including the immediate and future hiring strategy in statistics. We particularly welcome applications from established Professors, as well as from Readers/Senior Lecturers who can demonstrate a significant upward trajectory.
