Postdoctoral Researcher in Statistics

Applications are invited for a post of Research Specialist in statistics at the Science Institute of the University of Iceland. The main duties of the successful applicant will be to conduct independent research in any branch of statistics, applied or theoretical. However, all statisticians at the University of Iceland participate in the general statistical advice for faculty and PhD students. Although the position has no teaching duties, the future employee may teach some statistics courses but this must remain a minor part of the duties. The position is for two years with a possible extension for one year, starting as soon as possible. Potentially two researchers may be employed.

The applicant should have completed a PhD in statistics, preferably PhD completed during the five years preceding the employment.

The equal opportunities policy of the University of Iceland applies to all appointments.
