An Afternoon of Modern Statistical Thinking

Dear fellow scientists,

If you are keen in exploring how to analyse data in a scientifically objective way, then please join the seminar on The Key Concepts Of Modern Statistical Thinking with Application. The seminar takes place in Economicum, sh.3 – 4, Arkadiankatu 7, Helsinki on the 23rd of August from 12.30 – 15.30h. You can find description of the seminar here . The speakers are:

Dr. Ana Kolar – a Visiting Researcher at Department of Mathematics and Statistics, University of Helsinki, and a founder of Tarastats, Helsinki, Finland.                                            .

Dr. Per Johansson – a Professor at Department of Statistics, Uppsala University, Sweden, and at the Yau Mathematical Sciences Center, Tsinghua University, Beijing, China.

Analysing data in a scientifically objective way is crucial for an evidence-based society, so save the date and join the conversation.

New mailing list established

You may join a new mailing list to receive general announcement on probability and statistics in Finland.

The list is meant for general news and announcements on research and teaching in probability and statistics in Finland, for example: meetings, seminars, courses, summer schools, doctoral defenses, and job openings. Anybody can send email to this list, but please keep in mind that this list is only meant for short announcements, not discussions.

Anybody is free to join!

Åbo Akademi University (ÅAU) is an internationally acknowledged research university with an extensive responsibility for providing education in Swedish in Finland. With its international research community and its strong Nordic ties, Åbo Akademi University has an acclaimed and recognized position within research and education both nationally and internationally.

The faculty of Science and Engineering is opening a position as Assistant Professor, Associate Professor or Professor in Applied Mathematics within the tenure-track career system, starting on January 1st 2020 (or as agreed). The position will be placed in Åbo (Turku), Finland.

The Faculty of Science and Engineering at Åbo Akademi University offers education within Biosciences, Pharmacy, Natural Sciences, Information Technology and Chemical Engineering. The education within the subject Mathematics and Statistics offers skills that are in demand within society, especially within the insurance- and financial sector, and the IT-industry. In addition to that, the education of subject teachers in mathematics and its development is one of the most important tasks within the subject, as it has an essential responsibility to supply the Swedish speaking community in Finland with subject teachers in mathematics. The research in mathematics at Åbo Akademi University covers different parts within both abstract mathematics and applied mathematics.

The tenure track-position is placed at the subject Mathematics and Statistics, which is a part of Natural Sciences. The subject is responsible for education on basic-, subject-, and advanced studies as well as research studies and thesis supervision on all levels. The research activity within the subject is dynamic and internationally recognized. The research is focused especially on functional analysis, with applications in complex analysis and system theory, stochastic processes with applications in financial and insurance mathematics as well as number theory with applications in coding theory.

The field of activity

The field of activity is in Applied Mathematics with a special emphasis on Probability Theory, Stochastic Processes and Mathematical Statistics, with applications in Financial and Insurance Mathematics. Strong candidates in other suitable fields of Applied Mathematics are also welcome to apply.
