University of California, Irvine
Department of Statistics

Faculty Positions (2)
The newly established Department of Statistics ( at the
University of California, Irvine (UCI), is recruiting two faculty positions
in 2002-03: one with tenure and one tenure-track assistant professorship.
We anticipate appointing a full-time faculty in statistics of 6-8 people
over the next seven years, with several more half-time appointments shared
with other units at UCI. It will be a department with a strongly
interdisciplinary flavor, focused both on developing methods to solve
applied problems and understanding the statistical theory that underlies
those methods.

The Department is interested in individuals with research interests
in all areas of statistics at the present time.

UCI is one of the youngest campuses in the University of California,
yet we are already ranked very highly among U.S. public universities.
UCI is projected to grow by approximately 30% by the end of the decade,
with significant increases in graduate enrollment.  The new Department
of Statistics will occupy a prominent place in this expanding academic
profile, and it will interact significantly with a wide range of
existing departments and innovative programs across the whole campus.

A detailed account of plans for the new department is available at  For more information

around UCI, see the city of Irvine web site (
and the Orange County web site (

Completed applications with a cover letter, curriculum vita,
sample research publications, and three letters of recommendation
(or names of three references for tenured candidates)
should be sent to the Chair of the Department,
