Worcester Polytechnic Institute Mathematical Sciences Department

One visiting assistant professorship

The Worcester Polytechnic Institute Mathematical Sciences Department anticipates at least one visiting assistant professorship in statistics to begin in the fall of 2001. A Ph.D. or equivalent degree is required. Strong research and quality teaching potential are expected. Applicants are especially encouraged in the areas of time series, experimental design, Bayesian methods, Monte Carlo methods, data mining methods, biostatistics, sample survey methods, and survival analysis.

Appointments are for two years, contingent on satisfactory teaching, with possible renewal for a third year at the discretion of WPI and the appointee.
