Applications are invited for a tenure-track Assistant Professor in Data Science and Computational Mathematics in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Old Dominion University (ODU), starting Fall 2019. The department is seeking outstanding scholars in some of the new emerging areas of Data Science. We seek scholars with a demonstrated potential for excellent research and external funding, and commitment to teaching and mentoring undergraduate and graduate students. The successful person will have a Ph.D. in Mathematics or related fields with strong research record/potential in the areas of Data Science, such as sparse representation of big data sets, functional spaces suitable for big data and mathematical foundations of sparse machine learning, where mathematics plays a major role. Also, the person will help advance the university’s new initiative in Big Data Analytics and Data Science.

Salary is competitive and commensurate with qualification and experience. It is anticipated that the new faculty will expand the department course offerings and participate in the building of a strong academic program in Data Science at the undergraduate as well as at the graduate level. An exceptional candidate can be considered at the rank of Associate Professor.

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics is one of seven degree-granting departments in the College of Sciences and currently has 44 full-time faculty members, including 25 on the tenured/tenure track and 19 lecturers. The Department has robust undergraduate and graduate programs: a B.S. degree program in Mathematics with more than 170 undergraduate majors; and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees programs in Computational and Applied Mathematics with options in Applied Mathematics, Statistics, and Biostatistics with approximately 40 graduate students. The Department ranks in the top 20% on NSF's list of total and federally financed higher education R&D expenditures in the Mathematical Sciences. The Department receives substantial state support and peer-reviewed research grant support, from NSF, NASA, NIA, VDEQ, VSGC and other agencies. It is also supported by endowment funds. Many opportunities exist for collaboration and interaction with faculty members in the Department, other Departments of the College of Sciences and the University, the Virginia Modeling, Analysis and Simulation Center (VMASC) of the University and at nearby institutions: Eastern Virginia Medical School (EVMS); the National Institute of Aerospace (NIA); the NASA-Langley Research Center; and the Jefferson Laboratory.
