Lund University announces a position as
Associate Senior University Lecturer in Mathematical Statistics with
Specialisation in Statistical Methods and Models in Biology and Medicine
The division of Mathematical Statistics in the centre for Mathematical
Sciences constitutes of personal from both the science faculty and the
technical faculty (LTH) at Lund University. Currently, 25 teachers,
researchers and PhD students work in several areas in fundamental
statistics as well as different application areas.
The appointment is initially limited to four years, but can be made
permanent following an evaluation procedure. The successful candidate
will do research in statistical methods and models in biology and/or
medicine, and teaching in mainly the same areas. Examples of such
research areas include development and analysis of stochastic models
with applications in biology and/or medicine; biostatistics;
bioinformatics; medical statistical signal processing. Responsibilities
will also include supervision of masters students, and later also
supervision of postgraduate students. It is expected that the successful
candidate will be active in applying for external funding for the
divisionís research programme and in further developing collaborations
with university departments in the areas of biology and medicine, i.e.
in contributing to building a solid research programme in statistical
models and methods with applications in those areas.

corresponding scientific competence in a relevant subject area. Basic
qualifications are a PhD in statistics or a related area with
substantial content in mathematics and statistics. A person who holds a
foreign degree that is deemed equivalent to a doctorate shall be
qualified for appointment as associate senior lecturer. Priority should
be given to candidates who have completed their degree no more than five
years before the last date for applications. Candidates who have
