Statistical Learning and Data Mining Section : Tenure track position at Clemson University

The School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences (SMSS) at Clemson University invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position starting with the Fall 2021 semester. The position will be targeted toward individuals with demonstrated research excellence at the interface of statistics and optimization as it applies to methodological and theoretical development in machine learning and artificial intelligence, as well as interest in how such learning methods can be leveraged in application areas such as genetics, precision medicine, medical imaging, engineering, cybersecurity, etc. Targeted recruiting is at the assistant professor rank, but applicants at all ranks will be considered. The ideal candidate will be able to teach statistics courses at all levels and have strong potential for effective research in the mathematical sciences. Specific desirable attributes for candidates include strong interest in: 1) collaboration with faculty members in the School; 2) collaboration with subject-matter researchers throughout the University; 3) interest in building industrial partnerships; and 4) innovative non-traditional teaching approaches.

The Division of Statistics and Operations Research within the SMSS is comprised of the research groups of data science, operations research, and probability and mathematical statistics, and many faculty members within this division collaborate with faculty from the Division of Mathematics, which includes the research groups of algebra and discrete mathematics, computational mathematics, and pure and applied analysis. The school offers the full range of Baccalaureate, Master's, and Doctoral degrees. For further information regarding the school and its programs, please visit the web site http://www.math.clemson.edu.

Clemson University has the highest Carnegie research designation (Very High, R1), and recently completed its Clemson Forward plan with strategic focus on advancing our doctoral programs and strengthening our research and scholarly impact while still preserving the outstanding signature undergraduate experience that is at the heart of Clemson. The Clemson Forward plan directed the building of a new world-class College of Science that harnesses the disciplines of Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Genetics and Biochemistry, Mathematical Sciences, and Physics & Astronomy to solve tomorrow's greatest challenges. Clemson Forward has at its core the mission of inclusive excellence in our students and faculty that will help Clemson ascend to a top 20 public university and a model for the 21st Century land grant university.

Moreover, the University, the College of Science, and the School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences are committed to building a community of inclusive excellence, where faculty scholars are dedicated to working/teaching in a multi-cultural environment (www.clemson.edu/inclusion/). We are particularly interested in receiving applications from women, underrepresented minorities, and from those who have experience and/or a commitment toward mentoring students from diverse backgrounds, as well as those who have demonstrated a commitment to understanding the challenges in promoting diversity and inclusion in Statistics. In addition, the college is supportive of the needs of dual career couples. Clemson is funded by an NSF ADVANCE institutional transformation grant: www.clemson.edu/provost/tigers-advance/.

Qualifications

An earned doctorate in Statistics, Operations Research, or equivalent is required for this tenure track position.

Application Instructions

Review of applications will begin on December 1, 2020 and will continue until the position is filled. Applications received by January 15, 2021 will receive full consideration.

Applicants should indicate their research specialties and interests in their cover letter. Vita, statements on teaching, research, and a one-page statement describing the candidate's experience mentoring diverse individuals and/or how the candidate plans to contribute to the inclusive excellence of the School and the contact information for our system to secure three confidential reference letters should be submitted at apply.interfolio.com/81883.

MS Exam

The comprehensive exam will have three theoretical questions related to the underpinnings of Statistics as taught in 582 and 583 and three more “word problem like” applications of Statistics questions which are related to prerequisite classes (i.e. 484) and applications classes 563 and 586. Students will choose 5 of the 6 questions to answer and be graded on. We have now posted solutions to Applied and Theoretical questions from previous Masters Comprehensive Exams (which were given separately for Applied and Theoretical questions) and to the new format exam (Applied / Theoretical combined) that has been given since Fall 2019.
Given the current situation with COVID the exam will be conducted on-line. Detailed instructions for students taking exam will follow.
