		     SCHOOL OF MATHEMATICAL SCIENCES

		  Lecturer in Statistics or Probability


Applications are invited for the above post, available from 1 January
2000, or a later date by mutual agreement.
Candidates should have a strong commitment to high quality teaching,
and should have achieved an excellent research record, or have
outstanding research potential, in a branch of Statistics or
Probability.

The School of Mathematical Sciences
-----------------------------------

The School of Mathematical Sciences came into existence on
1 August 1998 with the merger of the Departments of Mathematics and
Theoretical Mechanics.  The School is currently undergoing an exciting
period of expansion, having recently made appointments to two Chairs in
Statistics, two Chairs in Pure Mathematics and to nine lectureships
across the full range of Pure Mathematics, Mathematical Physics, Statistics
and Theoretical Mechanics.

The School's current complement is 44 academic staff (including 2 vacancies),
11 support staff, 6 Research Fellows, 11 postdoctoral
research associates and 39 research students.
The School undertakes research and teaching in Pure and Applied
Mathematics and Statistics.  In the 1996 Research Assessment Exercise
the units of assessment were graded 5 (Applied Mathematics) and 4
(Pure Mathematics and Statistics).

The School offers degree programmes to about 570 undergraduates in
single honours degree programmes (both BSc and MMath) in Mathematics and
Mathematics with Engineering, 4 joint honours degree programmes in
Mathematics and Computer Science, Economics, Management Studies, and
Philosophy.  It also has an accredited joint honours degree (BEng and MEng)
in Electronic Engineering and Mathematics and teaches half of the
Mathematical Physics degree (both BSc and MSci).  In addition, the School
offers a wide range of service modules to the University at large,
notably to students in Engineering and Science.  Applications for the
School's undergraduate degree programmes are buoyant and we regularly
attract one of the best-qualified undergraduate intakes in Mathematics
in the UK.

All staff offices are equipped with Unix workstations or Pentium PCs
which are linked to the School's file servers and the University's
workstations and mainframe computers.  There are also well equipped
computing laboratories in the School for undergraduate and postgraduate use.
The School has two computer officers, responsible for both hardware and
software support, and is well served by an administrator and secretarial
staff.

The George Green Library for Science and Engineering and all the
Engineering, Science and Medical Schools are in nearby buildings.

The Statistics Division and the Lectureship
-------------------------------------------

The Statistics Division of the School of Mathematical Sciences is
currently undergoing an exciting period of development,
with the recent appointments of 2 Professors, 1 Lecturer and
1 Temporary Lecturer.
The recent appointments and the further lectureship underline the
commitment of both the University and the School to securing a grade 5 in
Statistics at the next Research Assessment Exercise.  The new lecturer will
be expected to make a positive contribution to that aim.

Applications for the Lectureship are encouraged from candidates with research
interests in any branch of Statistics or Probability.  Following this
appointment, the Statistics Division will comprise 3 Professors, 1 Reader,
1 Senior Lecturer, 2 Lecturers and 1 Temporary Lecturer.  The Division's
staff have research strengths across a wide spectrum of Statistics and
Probability, as indicated by their research interests listed below.

Professor F G Ball:
Applied probability, epidemic models, aggregated Markov
processes, ion channel models, stochastic compartmental
models, semi-Markov processes, Laplace transform based
inference, MCMC for hidden continuous time Markov chains.

Professor I L Dryden:
Statistical shape analysis, spatial statistics, Bayesian image
analysis, medical image analysis, robustness, computational
statistics, multivariate analysis, medical and biological applications
of statistics.

Dr H Le:
Stochastic processes on manifolds, stochastic geometry
with particular reference to shape spaces.

Dr C D Litton:
Bayesian methods, statistical archaeology, change-point problems.

Dr S Nadarajah:
Extreme value statistics, numerical aspects of branching processes.

Dr P D O'Neill:
Stochastic epidemic models, applied probability,
statistical inference, Markov Chain Monte Carlo methods.

Professor A T A Wood:
Bootstrap and empirical likelihood methods, simulation, asymptotic
approximations, likelihood theory, statistical aspects of fractals,
medical statistics.

The Statistics Division enjoys a number of collaborative links, both
within the University and beyond.  There are connections within the
University with other groups of statisticians, such as in the Faculty
of Medicine and Health Sciences and the School of Economics.
As a consequence of the University's formal link with IACR-Rothamsted,
the Statistics Division enjoys links with the Statistics (and other)
Departments at IACR-Rothamsted, including an annual joint seminar day,
joint supervision of research students, joint research and occasional
assistance with undergraduate teaching.  Senior members of staff of the
Statistics Department at IACR-Rothamsted hold Special Appointments at
the University.

The Statistics Division runs a lively joint seminar series with the
University of Leicester, as well as its own programme of internal
seminars.  Nottingham also regularly hosts meetings of the East Midlands
group of the Royal Statistical Society and the Midlands Probability
Seminar programme.

The University and the City of Nottingham
-----------------------------------------

The University is located on a three hundred acre woodland park just
within the western boundary of the city of Nottingham.  The University
has about 13,500 full-time and 8000 part-time students and 1000 academic
staff distributed across six Faculties.
Research activity is high with 32 units of assessment receiving
grade 4 or 5 in the 1996 Research Assessment Exercise.  Research income
has placed Nottingham in the top five institutions earning income from
private industry.
The University attracts more undergraduate applications per place than any
other UK university, and entry qualifications are high in most subjects.

The City of Nottingham is the principal city in the East Midlands and
offers a wide variety of shops, cultural and sporting activities and easy
access to the Peak District National Park.  Good quality housing and
schools are available in the locality.
