Ahmedabad University is seeking to appoint faculty members at all levels in the division of Mathematical and Physical Sciences at its School of Arts and Sciences. Currently, we are looking for faculty whose research lies in any field of Pure Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, and Statistics.

While we are particularly looking for applicants specialising in number theory, algebra, analysis, topology, geometry, probability, combinatorics, etc, candidates in interdiscilipnary areas like Financial and Actuarial Mathematics, Mathematical Economics, Mathematical Physics, Quantum Compution or in any other field are also encouraged to apply.

All candidates will be expected to teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels in the upcoming Undergraduate and Graduate Mathematics Programmes at Ahmedabad University and also to teach some interdisciplinary courses in other programmes of the University. Candidates in the field of Undergraduate Mathematics Education Pedagogy are also encouraged to apply.

At this stage, we are not defining areas of specialisation, but will in time move to clusters of expertise as the faculty develops. This is an exciting opportunity to join a fast-growing school in India in a dynamic new private university with a public ethos.

Applicants must have a doctorate and a postdoctoral fellowship from institutions with international recognition. Appointees will be expected to engage in quality research, to publish in their specialist field, to teach and guide undergraduates, to seek opportunities to win external funding for their research, and to supervise and examine both undergraduate and graduate work. They must have an existing record of excellence and potential, commensurate with their appointment level and stage of career. They will be expected to provide evidence of excellence as demonstrated by publications in leading academic journals or a research project at an international level, an emerging record of scholarly accomplishments, and presentations at significant conferences. The University provides a seed grant for faculty projects and a Faculty Development Allowance.

Ahmedabad University supports innovative, interdisciplinary, project-based education, and asserts the centrality of both the arts and the sciences in a broad, fulfilling education. We welcome applications from scholars with strong communication skills who can contribute to imaginative learning, and have a willingness to work collaboratively as part of a community of emerging scholars. Ahmedabad University is committed to diversity, and welcomes applications from qualified persons from underrepresented groups regardless of ethnicity, gender, religion or similar status.

Applicants are requested at this stage to submit

  1. a letter stating their interest in a position at the University and outlining briefly their qualifications for it;
  2. an up-to-date CV detailing their training, jobs held, university teaching experience if any, publications, and details of three referees;
  3. two representative articles or other publications as an example of their scholarship; and
  4. a statement of their future research and teaching interests (maximum length, 1000 words).

Applications and enquiries should be made to the office of the Dean of the School of Arts and Sciences, using the email address artsandsciences@ahduni.edu.in. Please quote the reference SAS/MPS/005 on your application and in any associated correspondence.
