The successful applicant will have experience in university teaching, a strong research record and will be ready to play a leading role in the development of Victoria's programmes in statistics and data science.

The appointee will undertake undergraduate and postgraduate teaching in statistics, especially in the applied statistics programmes. They will be able to promote learning among students with both strong and weak mathematical backgrounds. They will contribute to supervision of postgraduate research students, seek external research funding and maintain a research programme of international standard, in keeping with the university’s emphasis on high-quality scholarship.
