2. FURTHER PARTICULARS

We are looking for two full-time temporary Lecturers with an
interest in time series, actuarial statistics, applied probability
or social statistics.

The London School of Economics and Political Science is an
independent and autonomous institution with the status of a School
within the federal University of London. The School was founded
in 1895 and since 1901 has been incorporated under the Companies
Act as a company limited by guarantee. It occupies a compact site
in the heart of London close to Westminster, Whitehall, the City,
the Law Courts and the media. At present there are eighteen
academic departments, five interdisciplinary institutes and
several research centres. The School also houses the British
Library of Political and Economic Science, probably the finest
collection in the world of social science materials.

The School has approximately 7,000 students and is one of the
largest colleges in the University of London. About half of the
School's full-time students are post-graduate. The School employs
about 1,000 staff.

The Department of Statistics has 16 academic staff, several
research staff and 3 administrative support staff. Research
interests of staff are listed separately. The Department runs an
MSc in Statistics. At the undergraduate level, the Department
offers BSc degrees in Actuarial Science and in Business
Mathematics and Statistics. The Department has 11 students who
are working towards PhDs in areas of research including
multivariate time series models, robustness, regression
diagnostics, optimum experimental design, response errors in
surveys, census undercount, and volatility in financial markets.

The Department has a network of Sun SPARCstations 20. In addition
there is an extensive School network of IBM and Pentium machines,
both in staff offices and in teaching rooms.

The broad range of interests in the Department makes for a
stimulating environment and provides ample opportunity for
interaction at all levels of teaching and research. Generous
funding is available from the Staff Research Fund to aid research.
In addition, the Department plays an important role in the
intellectual life of the School and has contacts with many other
Departments. The Statistics Department has particularly close
links with the Departments of Economics, Mathematics and
Operational Research, and, through the Methodology Institute, with
the Departments of Sociology and Social Psychology.

The Department runs its own Departmental Seminars and is an active
member of the University of London's Statistics Seminar series and
the School's Econometric and Statistics Seminar series. Recent
visitors to the Department have included Alan Agresti and Karl
Joreskog.

Any candidate who wishes to discuss relevant issues informally is
invited to contact Dr Martin Knott on 0171-955 7636 in the
Department of Statistics.
