Sharing another job opening in the Penn State system (this is distinct from the one I
shared previously). Penn State Behrend (below; Erie PA) & Penn State's University
Park campus (State College, PA) are currently the only two (among ~ 25?) in the Penn State
system to offer an undergraduate statistics credential. Behrend is also developing a new
bachelor's degree in Data Analytics as well, so really cool things happening there.
Important note--Both positions I've shared recently (this one at Behrend & another
at UP a couple weeks back) are separate and independent applications, so if you or anyone
in your network would be interested in both positions please make sure both applications
are submitted separately.
I've cc'ed Mike Rutter at Penn State Behrend if you'd like to follow up with
him about the position there (reviews begin Oct 31), and I've cc'ed Scott Roths at
University Park if you have questions about that position (application reviews imminent
for that one).
All the best,
p.s. apologies that my email client makes the link below totally unrecognizeable as a
security measure--please let Mike know if you have trouble accessing the application.

Assistant Professor of Statistics position at Penn State Behrend
If you know of any recently graduated or about to graduate Ph.D.
students interested in teaching at a primarily undergraduate
institution, please make them aware of the currently posted Assistant
Professor of Statistics tenure-track position at Penn State Behrend.
This is a great opportunity for statisticians or data scientists looking
to teach at a small university (4,000 undergrads) while maintaining an
active applied research program. The mathematics department at Behrend
currently has one tenure line statistics faculty, but the demand for
statistics classes is increasing and the current tenured statistics
faculty (me) is finding himself involved in more administrative work. A
great opportunity to continue working with the wonderful faculty in the
statistics department at UP as well.

Review of applications will start October 31, 2021.
