Assistant Professor and Higher

Positions are available in Pure and Applied Mathematics at the level of Assistant Professor or higher. Appointments are based primarily on exceptional research qualifications. Appointees will be expected to fulfill teaching duties and pursue their own research program. Position begins September 2020. PhD required by employment start date.

C.L.E. Moore Instructor (in Pure Mathematics)
Instructor (in Applied Mathematics or Statistics)

These positions are open to mathematicians who show definite promise in research. Applicants with PhDs after January 2019 are strongly preferred. Appointees will be expected to fulfill teaching duties and pursue their own research program. Position begins September 2020.

The CLE Moore Instructor position is a full-time, three-year position. The position normally carries a teaching load of four standard recitations each academic year. A standard recitation meets twice weekly for one hour. Depending on the Department's teaching needs, Instructors may teach a course counting as two recitations.

American citizens and permanent residents are eligible (and encouraged) to apply for an NSF postdoctoral fellowship. The Moore Instructor position may be combined with an NSF Postdoctoral Fellowship by choosing the Research Instructorship option, which is a combination of full-time and half-time support over a period three academic years. After your initial year as a full-time NSF Postdoctoral Fellow, you will spend two academic years at half-time. In each of the half-time years the teaching load is reduced to three standard recitations. In addition, the Department may offer you one additional year as a full-time CLE Moore Instructor in your fourth year, after the completion of your NSF Postdoctoral Fellowship.

The Applied Mathematics Instructor position is a full-time, three-year position. The position normally carries a teaching load of four standard recitations each academic year. A standard recitation meets twice weekly for one hour. Depending on the Department's teaching needs, Instructors may teach a course counting as two recitations.

As with the Moore instructorship, Applied Mathematics Instructors who are also the recipients of an NSF fellowship may combine their fellowship with their instructorship.
