One (permanent) position at the Lecturer, Senior Lecturer

The Statistics Group in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Bath seeks to fill one (permanent) position at the Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, or Reader level in Statistics, tenable from 1st September 2001 or earlier by mutual agreement (we would be happy to find an established researcher who would like to join us by 1st February 2001, but we are equally interested in new PhDs or postdocs who might not come until the summer or autumn of next year).

The successful applicant will be expected to contribute to the research and teaching activities of the Statistics Group, which obtained Grade 5 (the maximum numerical score) in both the 1992 and 1996 Research Assessment Exercises (RAEs) and 24 points (the maximum possible score) in a QAA teaching assessment in 2000 (Bath is the only university in the UK with this joint research and teaching distinction).

Candidates for the advertised post should have a strong research record in any area within statistics and probability, but an interest in one of the following areas would be particularly welcome: applied statistics, with particular emphasis on computational aspects of statistical methods; financial mathematics; and/or probability theory.

Salary in the range of #24,227 - #30,967 (Lecturer Grade B) or #32,510 - #36,740 (Senior Lecturer/Reader) per annum, according to qualifications and experience (note that the University of Bath hires beginning lecturers at Grade B, not Grade A).
