The Department of Statistical Science invites applications for the position of Director of the Master’s in Statistical Science (MSS) program. The candidate will also be appointed as a regular rank, non-tenure track faculty member in the department. The MSS is a 2 year degree that provides a modern, comprehensive education in statistical and data science, emphasizing theory, methods and computation. The program brings students into challenging, real world research areas, and prepares students for positions in industry, government and other sectors as well as for PhD programs. Roughly 2/3 of the graduating MSS students move to industry and 1/3 to PhD programs. In concert with graduate faculty leadership, the Master’s Program Director will build on the existing foundation of the program to extend and develop partnerships in industry, government, non-profit, and other sectors, expanding internships and post-graduation job opportunities, as well collaborate with departmental faculty on aspects of the MSS administration and curriculum, and contribute to teaching and mentoring. Full details of the department and the MSS program can be found at www.stat.duke.edu.

Preference will be given to candidates with post-PhD experience in relevant areas and a strong interest in program development and administration with relevant experience in leadership and mentoring. To apply, submit a letter, curriculum vitae, personal statement, and names of three references via https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/program/16322. The personal statement should describe your experiences and qualifications relevant for the position.

Enquiries can be emailed to stat-search-msd@duke.edu. The application pool will remain open until the position is filled.
