Position ID: NCSU-PDRNA [#12087]
Position Title: RTG in Randomized Numerical Analysis, Postdoctoral Fellow
Position Type: Postdoctoral
Position Location: Raleigh, North Carolina 27695, United States [map]
Subject Area: Randomized numerical analysis
Application Deadline: 2019/03/15 (posted 2018/06/27)
Position Description:    

The Department of Mathematics at NC State University has an open postdoctoral position under its new NSF funded Research Training Group RTG, DMS-1745654 in Randomized Numerical Analysis. The position is restricted to US citizens, nationals and permanent residents. The postdoctoral associate must hold a PhD in mathematics or a closely related discipline awarded after January 1, 2017. An exception to this rule, occasioned for instance by a career interruption, may be requested in the cover letter.

The postdoctoral associate is expected to engage in research related to at least one of the three complementary research thrusts of the project in randomized numerical linear algebra, random nonlinear solvers and global sensitivity analysis. Strengths in applied probability, numerical analysis and scientific computing are an asset. Based on background, experience and interests, the postdoc will be assigned one research mentor from the faculty associated with the RTG: Alen Alexanderian, Pierre Gremaud, Ilse Ipsen, Tim Kelley, Arvind Saibaba and Ralph Smith. An academic mentor will be chosen from this group to oversee the postdoc's training and professional development. The postdoc will also play a leading role in mentoring students associated with some of the project's working groups; he/she will be expected to assist in organizing seminars and activities related to the general research of the RTG. In addition, the postdoc will teach on average one course per semester in the Department of Mathematics.

This position is for a term of up to three years, contingent upon performance. The starting date is anticipated between January and August 2019. The 11 month salary of $62,500 includes summer support. In addition, the postdoc will be given an annual travel budget of $3,000.

Through the mathjobs.org system, applicants should submit a cover letter, a CV, a research statement and the names of at least three potential letter writers. Women and members of under-represented minority groups are particularly encouraged to apply. Applications will be evaluated on a rolling basis until the position is filled; please apply as soon as possible. Inquiries may be directed to Pierre Gremaud (RTG Director): gremaud@ncsu.edu.
