Eberly College of Science


The Department of Statistics at The Pennsylvania State University invites applications for one or more tenure-track positions, including at least one assistant professor position and the possibility of an additional open-rank position. Penn State has launched a multi-college data sciences degree program, and one of these positions is expected to support this effort. The Statistics Department is part of the Eberly College of Science at Penn State, which accounts for over one hundred million dollars of research expenditures annually. A conservative analysis of the most recent National Research Council (NRC) data for basic science programs at research universities places Penn State Science clearly in the top ten in the United States. The Statistics Department itself has more than 25 tenure-line faculty members and more than 40 faculty members total, engaged in a wide variety of teaching and research. The research activity is both theoretical and applied, with collaborative ties to other departments in the College of Science (e.g., biology and astronomy) as well as other colleges across the university (e.g., Earth and Mineral Sciences, Engineering, Health and Human Development, and Medicine). Multiple institutes at Penn State (e.g., the Huck Institutes of Life Sciences, Penn State Institutes of Energy and the Environment, and the Institute for Cyberscience) support inter-disciplinary research and involve multiple statistics faculty members in collaborative research. Penn State is located in the center of Pennsylvania, in a valley surrounded by the Appalachian Mountains and state forestland. The adjoining town of State College combines many amenities typically found in large metropolitan areas with the benefits of a small town boasting a highly educated population. Additional information about the department can be found at https://psu.jobs/job/66021. In addition to completing the Penn State on-line application, applicants must submit application materials, including cover letter, CV, research and teaching statements, and three letters of reference, through https://www.mathjobs.org/jobs/jobs/9028
