Governorís Chair in Statistics
in the UT-ORNL Joint Institute for Computational Sciences

The State of Tennessee is investing in 20 exceptionally accomplished researchers who will have joint appointments as tenured professors at the University of Tennessee (UT) and distinguished research staff at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). This Governorís Chair (GC) program seeks to catalyze the development of leading edge research under the auspices of four joint institutes between UT and ORNL: Biological Sciences, Computational Sciences, Neutron Sciences, and Advanced Materials Sciences. The GC appointments include an ongoing discretionary research fund equal to twelve months salary.

The opening in Statistics is jointly sponsored by the Computer Science and Mathematics Division at ORNL and by the Department of Statistics, Operations, and Management Science in the College of Business Administration at the University of Tennessee. The Department of Statistics, begun in 1947 and augmented with Management Science in 2004, has a distinguished heritage of assisting business and industry through the development and intelligent application of statistical tools. Any area of statistics that complements current strengths of the joint sponsors will be considered. Ability to partner with high growth applications relevant to UT and to ORNL is most desired. Major science and technology interests at ORNL include neutron science, energy, high-performance computing, biological systems, advanced materials, and national security. Successful candidates will have an exceptional record of scientific productivity and accomplishment, as manifested, e.g., in high-impact publications, scientific awards, or Fellow status in scientific and engineering societies. Successful candidates will also have a record of leading cross-disciplinary research teams and of developing substantial externally-funded research programs.

APPLICATIONS: All applications should be submitted electronically to Professor Robert Mee ([email protected]) following the instructions associated with each search (see web site). Screening of applications will commence on October 1, 2007 and will continue until the position is filled. The University of Tennessee is an EEO/AA/Title VI/Title IX/Section504/ADA/ADEA institution in the provision of its education and employment programs and services. UT welcomes and honors people of all races, creeds, cultures, and sexual orientations and values intellectual curiosity, pursuit of knowledge, and academic freedom and integrity. ORNL, a multiprogram research facility managed by UT-Battelle, LLC, for the U.S. Department of Energy, is an equal opportunity employer committed to building and maintaining a diverse work force.

The Joint Institute for Computational Sciences (JICS) will support both fundamental and applied research and teaching programs in computational sciences, computational mathematics, statistics, computer science, high performance computing, storage and networking, and cyber security. The UT-ORNL environment nurtures a rich interdisciplinary community of researchers with common interests and collaborative projects. The UT-ORNL research enterprise has more than $2 billion in investments in some of the worldís most advanced research facilities.

Scientists and engineers at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the University of Tennessee conduct basic and applied research and development to create scientific knowledge and technological solutions that strengthen the nationís leadership in key areas of science; increase the availability of clean, abundant energy; restore and protect the environment; and contribute to national security. UT and ORNL provide an environment that encourages collaborative research and development. UT-Battelle manages and operates ORNL under contract DE-AC05-00OR22725.
