Departmental Lecturer

University of Oxford
Department of Statistics

Closing Date: 9th November 2020

We are seeking up to two Departmental Lecturers to join the Department of Statistics, a world leader in research including computational statistics and statistical methodology, probability, bioinformatics and mathematical genetics. This is an exciting opportunity to engage in advanced study and primarily teach undergraduate and graduate students. These are temporary appointments until 30 September 2021 to make provision for teaching and allow the post-holders to conduct independent research. The Departmental Lecturers will have the skills and enthusiasm to contribute to teaching and assessment, and they will have the opportunity to carry out and publish original research.

As the successful Departmental Lecturer, you will have, or be close to completing, a PhD in probability, statistics or a related discipline and have an aptitude for teaching and some experience of teaching and research. You will have sufficient depth and breadth of knowledge in the subject to develop course materials and research proposals. You will also have a publication record and familiarity with the existing literature and research in the field commensurate with your career stage.
