Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Opening

With Professors Liza Levina and Ji Zhu

The University of Michigan, Department of Statistics

A postdoctoral position is available in the Department of Statistics at the University of Michigan, working with Liza Levina and Ji Zhu. We are looking for an independent, creative candidate with an interest and experience in statistical network analysis, statistical learning, or a related area. The postdoc will have a lot of freedom in setting their research agenda. We are open to a range of options, including theory, methodological developments, and applications, especially to neuroimaging and healthcare.

A Ph.D. in statistics or a related discipline is required. The position starts in Fall 2023 and is renewable annually for up to three years. To apply, please visit and submit a CV, a research statement, a cover letter explaining your interest in the position, and arrange for at least three reference letters to be uploaded directly to mathjobs.  Teaching and diversity statements are not required, but if you happen to have them, please submit them as well. Review of applications will begin in January and continue on a rolling basis until the position is filled.

This appointment is contingent on the successful completion of a background screening.
