Tenure-Track Faculty Positions

Main Content

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 University 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

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

State application at https://psu.jobs/job/66021 and must apply online and
submit application materials, including cover letter, CV, research and
teaching statements, and three letters of reference, through mathjobs.org
