Columbia statistics department hiring teachers and researchers

Details here. Here are the four positions:

1. The Department of Statistics invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position to begin July 1, 2020. A Ph.D. in statistics or a related field is required. Candidates will be expected to sustain an active research and publication agenda and to teach in the departmental undergraduate and graduate programs. The field of research is open to any area of statistics and probability.

2. The Department of Statistics invites applications for four-year term positions at the rank of Assistant Professor to begin July 1, 2020. A PhD in statistics or a related field is required, as is a commitment to high quality research and teaching in statistics and/or probability. Candidates will be expected to sustain an active research and publication agenda and to teach in the departmental undergraduate and graduate programs. Candidates with expertise in machine learning, big data, mathematical finance and probability theory are particularly encouraged to apply.

3. The Department of Statistics invites applications for a position at the rank of Lecturer in Discipline that begins July 1, 2020. It is a full-time appointment with multi-year renewals contingent on successful reviews. This position is to contribute to the Departmental educational mission at the undergraduate and masters level. Lecturers in Discipline are officers in the University who meet a programmatic need for instruction in specialized fields.

4. The Department of Statistics invites applications for Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellowships in Statistics. These fellowships seek to bring exceptional scientists of outstanding potential to Columbia University. These two-year fellowships, with no teaching obligations, are to begin between July and September 2020. The Fellows will hold the rank of postdoctoral research scientist in the Department of Statistics. A competitive annual salary will be supplemented with generous funding for conference travel and research support. Applications in all areas of statistics and probability will be considered: the primary selection criterion will be the candidates’ exceptional promise to produce high quality and visible research.

From my perspective, it would be great to get people who work in social or physical science applications.
