Oberlin College has a tenure track position open in statistics/data
science. Most likely the new person will be housed in the Mathematics
Department (with me, until I retire in a few years), but the college is
open to placing the new person in Computer Science, or Economics, or
Psychology, or wherever else they would most naturally fit, given their
background; the search is being conducted by our Statistical Methods
Committee (which I chair). We have a Statistically Modeling minor and an
Integrative Concentration in Data Science, both of which we hope the new
person's courses could support.

Review of applications will start on 28 October 2022, and will continue
until the position is filled.

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics seeks
applicants for a
Tenure-track position beginning August 2023, with expertise in Statistics,
at the rank of assistant professor. Applicants must have a Ph.D. by the
start of the position.
The successful candidate will offer courses across the undergraduate
statistics curriculum (e.g. Introductory Statistics, Statistical Modeling,
Probability Theory) as well as courses that contribute to the College’s
general education requirements. The standard annual teaching load is five
courses. The department offers majors in mathematics, a newly developed
mathematics-statistics combined major, as well as combined majors in
mathematics-economics and mathematics-physics. We have also launched an
interdisciplinary minor in Data Science. The new hire will have
flexibility in designing courses within our curriculum as well as their own
specialty courses. The department welcomes ideas for developing
interdisciplinary courses (e.g. Statistics and Justice, Sports and
Statistics, Statistics and the Life Sciences). We also require a
semester-long project for all of our majors and place a high premium on
student-faculty research. The College provides a generous pre-tenure
sabbatical leave program and professional development support for both
research and teaching.
Whitman College is committed to cultivating an inclusive learning
community. Applicants should be able to demonstrate their commitment to
