Reader/Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Statistics and Probability
The Department of Mathematical Sciences at Durham University has a
vacancy for a Reader/Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Probability and Statistics.
You will have an excellent research record in an area of Probability as
appropriate for the level for which you apply; preference may be given
to candidates whose research areas are compatible with existing
interests of the Probability Group.
You will be expected to make a substantial commitment to the research
activities of the Statistics & Probability Group, and to undertake
teaching and administrative duties as assigned by the Head of Department
of Mathematical Sciences. For appointment as Reader, candidates must
have a substantial record of excellent publications at internationally
leading level, experience with postgraduate supervision and substantial
teaching experience at University level, and a record of successful
