The Department of Statistics invites applications for multiple positions at the rank of Lecturer in Discipline to begin July 1, 2021. These are full-time appointments with multi-year renewal contingent on successful review. These positions will contribute to the departmental educational mission at the undergraduate and masters levels.
Lecturers in Discipline are officers in the University who meet a programmatic need for instruction in specialized fields. The selected candidates will be expected to teach 3 courses per semester.
