Department of Statistics, University of Florida


The Statistics Department of the University of Florida anticipates the appointment of one or two lecturers to full-time academic year teaching positions beginning with the spring semester of 2001. Lecturer postions are not tenure accruing but annual reappointment is possible and there is no time limit on length of service. Summer teaching opportunities are usually available. We project three lecturer positions in a department of approximately 33 faculty members.

Duties connected to these position are primarily the teaching of undergraduate courses. The Department of Statistics teaches approximately 7000 undergraduate students per year in a wide array of introductory and specialty courses. These students come from nearly all colleges on campus. A full-time teaching load is 12 hours per semester.

Applicants for this position should have a master's degree in statistics or a closely allied field and have some teaching experience. Some experience with modern statistical computing is highly recommended.

Those wishing to apply must send by postal mail a letter of application, current C.V., a photocopy of graduate transcript, and three letters of reference by November 1, 2000.
