Statistics

Position Announcement: Visiting Assistant Professor 
The Department of Statistics at the University of California, Santa Cruz invites applications for a Visiting Assistant Professor. More information available here.
 
Statistics is a discipline devoted to the use of mathematical methods and reasoning to solve real-world problems of a scientific or decision-making nature in a wide variety of subjects, principally (but not exclusively) in engineering, medicine, and the social sciences. Statistics, construed broadly, is the study of uncertainty: how to measure it (using ideas and methods in probability theory), and what to do about it (using concepts from statistical inference and decision theory). 

Note: We are currently working on reshaping our departments. One of these changes has been to establish two distinct departments from the former Applied Mathematics and Statistics Department. Please pardon our dust as web pages are brought up to date.
