Two Chairs of Statistics at UCL

The Department of Statistical Science at UCL is currently undergoing a
programme of expansion. As part of this expansion the Department invites
applications for two Chairs of Statistics from candidates with outstanding
research records of international excellence. The two appointees will be
expected to provide research leadership as well as to contribute to the
Department’s undergraduate and postgraduate teaching programmes. An
initial task will be to provide input into the recruitment of two new
lecturers. More experienced candidates may be considered for the future
Headship of the Department.

The successful candidates will have internationally recognised track
records of research and will be able to contribute to the strong research
profile of the Department. They are expected to have continuing track
records of external research grant funding and doctoral research
supervision, experience of teaching at undergraduate or postgraduate level
and excellent interpersonal, oral and written communication skills.

Both posts are available from 1 October 2011. Salary is negotiable on the
professorial scale but will not be less than £61,960 per annum inclusive
of London Allowance. Provision of an additional market supplement on top
of the basic salary is currently under review.
