Associate/Full Professor of Statistics

Yale University

United States


Yale University’s Statistics and Data Science (S&DS) Department invites applications for three faculty positions to start at the Associate Professor with tenure level or Full Professor with tenure level to start in July 2024. Two of these positions prioritize real-world applications of S&DS, while the third is open to all areas in our field. For the applied positions, ideal candidates will engage with data-driven research in fields of inquiry beyond S&DS and pursue analytic developments that benefit applied research in those fields. Active collaborations with applied practitioners are welcome, and joint appointments with other departments of interest may be available. 

In 2018, Yale announced that Data Science would be one of its top five priority areas for new investments in Science. In accordance with this plan, the S&DS Department at Yale has experienced remarkable growth, adding 15 faculty members in the last five years, 5 of whom have joint appointments with other departments. Current faculty in the department have Ph.D.s in fields including Applied Mathematics, Brain & Cognitive Science, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, Political Science, and Statistics. After expanding into parts of multiple buildings, this summer brought a welcome consolidation with the department relocating to occupy three floors of the newly renovated and modernized “Kline Tower” at Yale.

The floor above the department houses Yale’s new Institute for Foundations of Data Science, which supports the development and application of data science across the University. New faculty in the S&DS Department will have an opportunity to play a key role in shaping this institute. 

Excellence in teaching and advising in the area of Statistics and Data Science is valued, and new faculty will have opportunities to design courses that align with their research interests. The department is collegial and seeks others with strong interpersonal skills who have the capacity to increase Yale’s talent pool and effectively teach and mentor students of diverse backgrounds and interests.



Applicants must have a Ph.D or equivalent degree at the time of hire.
