Tenure-Track Position in Probability and Stochastic Processes

Position # 002353TT-2022-MAT

The University of Windsor's Department of Mathematics and Statistics, in the Faculty of Science, invites applications for a Tenure-Track position at the rank of Assistant Professor, in the area of Probability and Stochastic Processes, commencing July 1, 2022.  This position is subject to final budgetary approval.
 

The University of Windsor is a medium-sized university with a solid reputation in teaching and research, offering a friendly and supportive environment for both living and learning. It is Canada’s southernmost university, and its border location provides unique cultural, recreational, and educational opportunities for faculty and students.
 

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics consists of 14 professors, 1 Sessional Lecturer, 1 Ancillary Academic Staff (Director of the Math and Stats Learning Centre), 2 support staff, about 100 undergraduate students, and about 40 graduate students, both masters and doctoral. For further information about the Department, including information on our research areas, visit http://www.uwindsor.ca/math/. The department is in the Faculty of Science, which has a 1 to 16 faculty to student ratio, has more than \$2M annually in scholarships, involves more than 65% of its students in research, and has more than \$10M in annual research support.


The position in probability and stochastic processes is intended to enhance our current areas of expertise (Statistical inference, Biostatistics, Statistical/machine learning and data analytics) and would strengthen teaching and cross-disciplinary collaboration in finance, stochastic operations research, health care, biology, and population dynamics and epidemics.
 

The ideal candidate must possess a PhD in Statistics (or in Probability and/or Stochastic Processes) supported by a demonstrated record of excellence in research demonstrated by refereed publications, grants and fellowships. Preference will be given to candidates with a strong research program in probability and stochastic processes, especially with evidence of collaboration and research in applications of stochastic processes in some or all the following areas: Finance, Health Care, Epidemic Modeling (e.g., SIS models, Markov models), Image Analysis (e.g., stochastic point processes in neuroimaging, ophthalmology, etc.), and population dynamics. The preferred candidate must also have proven strong computational skills as the above applications require such skills. In addition, strong English communication and interpersonal skills, and the ability to teach undergraduate and graduate courses is essential, as is the ability to contribute to our strong graduate program through the supervision of graduate students.
