Smart Living Mathematics & Statistics Cluster
Missouri University ofScience and Technology
We’re looking for individuals to help us make our mark inthis area of Smart Living
which is critical to economic development in Missouri and the Nation.
MissouriUniversity of Science and Technology (Missouri S&T) is seekingcandidates for a tenure track faculty position at the assistant professor,associate professor, or professor level who excel in interdisciplinary researchto advance our campus signature area of Smart Living .
Smart Living seeks to improve the humanliving condition by enhancing the integrated system of people, technology, andthe environment.
Smart Living requires an interdisciplinary effort in numerousfields among the business, computing, economics, engineering, humanities,mathematics and statistics, policy, science, and social science disciplines toadvance a sustainable, usable, and healthy society.
The Smart Living signaturearea is one of four signature areas that are part of S&T’s aggressivestrategic plan to hire 100 faculty, adding more breadth and depth to ourworld-
class programs. New hires may start in Fall 2018, Spring 2019, orFall 2019.
Ahighly qualified, motivated faculty member from a potentially any disciplinewould join the university at a pivotal moment in its 147 year history to assistus in raising our visibility.
The university has an ambitious strategic planstrongly supported by the University of Missouri System, and a decade of growthin its enrollments, research expenditures, scholarly activity and overallacademic quality.
In rising to the challenge, the university is halfway througha plan to hire 100 new faculty members by 2020 growing the faculty by 20percent.
Partof this bold, ambitious plan includes employing transformative and focusedhiring in four interdisciplinary signature areas, including Smart Living .
Newfaculty member will build upon and add new dimensions to the existing strengthsat Missouri S&T. The position is broadly defined.
The new hire mustbe able to contribute to the Smart Living vision from one of a varietyperspectives, including secure and private decision-

Hard copy applications are not accepted. Acceptable electronicformats include PDF and Word. Review of applications will begin on November 30, 2017 and applications willbe accepted and reviewed until the position is filled.
Candidatesinterested in Mathematics and Statistics as their home department should have aPh.D. with doctoral research in statistics or applied dynamical systems with astrong emphasis on stochastic modeling and data analysis .
The candidatemust show evidence of a strong interests in, and a demonstrated capability of,developing cutting-edge methodology and computational tools for solvinghigh-
dimensional and complex data intensive problems with underlyingstochasticity. The ideal candidate must have experience in collaborative researchwith scientists in other disciplines on a substantive research project.
Thosewith skills and experience in the application of mathematics or statistics inthe modeling of complex systems and / or extracting knowledge and providinginsights into mechanisms underlying noisy high-
dimensional data will be highlydesirable. Training and experience in the use of data visualization tools forhigh-dimensional data will be a plus.
While establishing a successfulcollaboration with interdisciplinary teams of engineers as well as behavioral,biological, computer, and social scientists, the ideal candidate should be abledevelop mathematically / statistically optimal yet practical solutions to thechallenges posed by the smart living research initiative.
MissouriUniversity of Science and Technology is one of the nation’s leading researchuniversities. Located about 100 miles west of St.
Louis in the communityof Rolla, Missouri S&T is an accessible, safe and friendly campussurrounded by Ozarks scenery. Missouri S&T offers degrees inengineering, the sciences, liberal arts, humanities, and business, withmaster’s and Ph.
D. programs available in many of the science and engineeringprograms and master’s degrees in biological sciences, business administration,industrial and organizational psychology, and technical communication.
With nearly 9,000 students enrolled online and on campus, Missouri S&T isbig enough to accommodate a diverse population, but small enough forindividuals to stand out.
