Full Professor of Statistics

The School of Basic Sciences (Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics) at EPFL seeks to appoint a tenured Full Professor in Statistics. We seek outstanding candidates with research interests within core statistical inference and methodology, including but not restricted to computationally intensive inference, large-scale inference, penalised and/or nonparametric inference.
We seek candidates with world leading profiles who will play a major role in further developing Statistics research and education at EPFL. Priority will be given to the overall originality and impact of the candidate’s work over any particular specialization area.

Candidates should hold a PhD and have an excellent record of scientific accomplishments in the field, commensurate with the rank of Full Professor. In addition, commitment to excellence in teaching at the undergraduate, master and doctoral levels is expected. The successful candidate is expected to play an important role in the EPFL’s new MSc in Statistics.

EPFL, with its main campus located in Lausanne, Switzerland, on the shores of Lake Geneva, is a dynamically growing and well-funded institution fostering excellence and diversity. It has a highly international campus with first-class infrastructure, including high performance computing. Mathematics and Statistics at EPFL benefit from the presence of the Bernoulli Centre for Fundamental Studies on the EPFL campus, and boast a world-class faculty.

As a technical university covering essentially the entire palette of engineering and science, EPFL offers a fertile environment for multi-disciplinary research collaborations. The EPFL environment is multi-lingual and multi-cultural, with English often serving as a common interface.

Proficiency in French is not required, but willingness to learn the language expected.

Applications should include a cover letter, a CV with a list of publications, a concise statement of research (maximum three pages) and teaching interests (one page), and the names and addresses (including e-mail) of at least five references who have already agreed to supply a letter upon request.

Applications should be uploaded (as PDFs) by November 30, 2022 to
