Particular topics of teaching will include introductory statistics, exploratory data analysis, machine learning, big data processing, data visualization, data science, and software technologies such as R, SAS, Tableau, SQL and Python. A Ph.D. in Statistics or a related field is required at the time of employment. Demonstrated potential for effective teaching and scholarly work in educational research is a preferred qualification for the Assistant level position. Proven track record in effective teaching and evidence of scholarly work in educational research are preferred qualifications for the Associate level position.
