The Statistics, Probability and Operations Research (SPOR) cluster of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) intends to fill two full-time tenure-track positions for assistant professors in Statistics. The Statistics group is looking for a statistics lecturer to strengthen the group.
The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science is one of the largest of the Eindhoven University of Technology. The department provides highly-ranked bachelor and master-level programs in mathematics, computer science and data science. In addition, it is a key player in the Jheronimus Academy of Data Science (JADS), i.e., a unique collaboration between universities and other institutions that offers educational data science programs from bachelor to PDEng level. In fact, the Industrial and Applied Mathematics program won the prestigious 2022 UPS George Smith Prize, a world-wide recognition acknowledging its excellence in preparing students to become practitioners in industrial and applied mathematics. In addition to its educational role, the department conducts pioneering scientific research in mathematics, data science, and computer science. The department operates from the vision that, for the development of innovative solutions to societal challenges it is crucial to acquire a deep and solid understanding of the fundamentals of mathematics and computer science, while still embedding this knowledge in challenging application areas.
SPOR is one of the clusters within the domain of mathematics and conducts theoretical and applied research in statistics, probability theory, operations research, and combinatorial optimization
The statistics group is part of the SPOR cluster, and it is organized around three main pillars: mathematical statistics, industrial statistics, and biostatistics. The group conducts fundamental research related to real-world or societal problems. The two pillars biostatistics and industrial statistics directly support (the research of) two application domains: life sciences and high-tech industry. The mathematical statistics pillar focuses on more foundational research in connection with the applied disciplines. In addition, the statistics group works in close connection with the Teaching & Research Institute for Data Science Analytics (TRI-DSA), focusing on education of professionals and implementation science, as well as EDIN , the education innovation group within the department.
As a university teacher, you will be involved in statistics education in close collaboration with your colleagues from the statistics group. The statistics group has a high collaborative spirit in which members support each other in teaching tasks and where teaching experiences are shared within the group.
Your main tasks will be lecturing, teaching tutorials, assessing assignments and exams, and supervising students with their bachelor thesis. You will also be able to actively contribute to improving education in statistics by designing new teaching methods or (online) assessment. You will spend 80% of their time teaching while 20% is available for research and other tasks. Part of the teaching time can be used for innovation in teaching materials and methods (e.g., blended learning).
The teacher position offers you a great opportunity to gain experience in a dynamic, innovative teaching environment, and contribute to the variety of educational activities we offer in the areas of statistics. You are a team player with a passion for teaching statistics to students with different backgrounds in an innovative, interactive way.
