Professor of Probability or Statistics

Vacant position

Applications in the general areas of probability theory and statistics are welcome. The successful candidate is expected to be an internationally highly recognized researcher and the research must have excellence status in the applicant’s area of specialization.

Applicants are required to have teaching experience and documented teaching competencies at university level, and must be able to explain and reflect upon their own teaching practice and portfolio. Formal pedagogical training or supervision equivalent to the University of Copenhagen teacher training programme for assistant professors is required.

Duties include conduct of research, development of the field, assessment tasks, grant applications, and research management such as supervision and training of research fellows and other staff. The successful applicant must also teach and supervise undergraduate and graduate students, prepare and participate in examinations, and fulfill other tasks requested by the Department.

Assessment of applicants will primarily be based on their level of documented, original scientific production at an international level, including contributions to the development of their field, as well as their documented teaching qualifications. Managerial and out-reach experience of the applicants, including their ability to attract external funding, will also be considered.

The Department is a leading mathematics institution with a lively international research environment that spans several areas of pure and applied mathematics. It has strong groups in, e.g., statistics, actuarial mathematics and mathematical physics, and intends to become stronger in probability theory. The Department teaches a large portfolio of undergraduate and graduate courses both for students in the mathematical sciences and for students of other subjects at the Faculty of Science.

Further information on the Department can be found here. Inquiries about the position can be made to the Head of Department Michael Sørensen.

The position is open from 1 November 2017 or as soon as possible thereafter.

Application deadline: 11-06-2017
