While we’re on the topic of what you plan to do with your PhD in statistics – UCLA department of statistics recently announced that it is looking for a new professor.
Applications and nominations are invited for the position of Professor of Statistics, any level (tenure-track Assistant Professor, tenured Associate Professor or tenured Full Professor), in the Department of Statistics at the University of California, Los Angeles.
The position targets candidates with high quality research, a strong teaching record, and with expertise preferably in one or more of the following areas: Environmental Statistics, Social Statistics, and Spatial Statistics. Qualified candidates must have a Ph.D. in Statistics or Biostatistics. The position is effective July 1, 2009.
UCLA department of statistics is one of the best stat programs in the country with a talented faculty and really cool students. Albeit, I might be a little biased, but still. If you’re interested, go for it; or if you know anyone who might be qualified, do them a solid and forward them the information.
They are also interviewing candidates for a joint appointment in CS and Stats for Machine Learning (but not vision). I so cannot wait until this person starts. We need someone like that.
Is this joint CS and Stats position still open? I am interested in applying in case it is…
yeah, it should be – “Reviews for the position begin May 1, 2008” from:
But this is for the Statistics faculty position, there is no mention of the joint CS and Stats position in this post and hence I was wondering.
