The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Arkansas State University seeks applications for a tenure-track, 9-month position in Statistics at the Assistant Professor level, with a starting date of August 15, 2017. The department's programs include the B.S. Mathematics, B.S.E. Mathematics, M.S. Mathematics, M.S.E. Mathematics, undergraduate minors in both mathematics and statistics, and a Ph.D. Minor in Statistics. The department teaches undergraduate and graduate statistics courses that support many degree programs on campus and enrollment is growing. The M.S. Statistics degree is being developed and there will be opportunities to design and teach courses with applications and methodologies that complement faculty research areas.
Faculty members must be devoted to teaching, maintaining strong research programs, and actively participating in local and national professional societies in statistics or mathematics. Primary teaching responsibilities will be in undergraduate and graduate courses in statistics and (if applicable) undergraduate courses in mathematics. In addition to teaching, all faculty participate in curriculum development and student advising. Each member of the faculty has the duty to deliver instruction and maintain a learning environment consistent with the highest standards of the profession. The faculty has a responsibility to set degree requirements, assess when they are met, and establish and maintain curricula that meet professional standards and fulfill the educational goals of the University. Faculty also assist the Department with administrative and committee work and are expected to assume campus-wide committee responsibilities. Faculty members teach, mentor, oversee student research, and advise a diverse student body.
University computer labs are well-equipped, with access to R, SAS®, MINITAB® and SPSS®, and allow students to program using full versions of statistical software packages often used in the market.
Applications must include a CV, letter of application describing qualifications, a statement of teaching interests/philosophy, a description of proposed research program, unofficial graduate school transcripts, and the names, addresses, phone numbers, and e-mail addresses of three references. Applications received by April 29, 2017 will receive full consideration.
