Statistics at UC Berkeley: We are a community engaged in research and education in probability and statistics. In addition to developing fundamental theory and methodology, we are actively involved in statistical problems that arise in such diverse fields as molecular biology, geophysics, astronomy, AIDS research, neurophysiology, sociology, political science, education, demography, and the U.S. Census. We have forged strong interdisciplinary links with other departments and areas of study, particularly biostatistics, mathematics, computer science, and biology, and actively seek to recruit graduate students and faculty who can help to build and maintain such links. We also offer a statistical consulting service each semester.
Statistics Department Assistant Professor hiring for 2014: We invite applications for two tenure-track level (Assistant Professor) positions in the areas of Probability and Statistics, with a start date of July 1, 2014. We will consider strong candidates in any area of Probability or Statistics (theoretical, applied, or computational).
