Two full-time positions are available.

The University of Adelaide is seeking to grow the statistics, data science, and stochastic modelling team in the School of Mathematical Sciences. This is an opportunity for a highly motivated researcher and committed educator to join a School that is a leader in pedagogical innovation and received the highest possible rating of research quality in the mathematical sciences overall and in each of its disciplines in the two most recent ERA assessments.

The School has identified data science, broadly construed, as one of its strategic priorities. We are seeking an enthusiastic colleague to work with us to expand our research and educational offerings in statistics, data science, and stochastic modelling. Willingness to engage with industry would be an asset. 

The School is strongly committed to increasing the diversity of its staff and students. These two available positions are directed at applicants who are able to contribute to the diversity of the School community.
