Position Description:    

*** this position has been closed, and no new applications is accepted. ***

The Institute for Mathematical and Computational Engineering (IMC) from the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (UC) is offering a full-time position at the assistant or associate level. We invite highly qualified candidates in all areas of applied mathematics addressed by the Institute to apply to these positions. These areas are data science and machine learning, computational sciences and engineering, and algorithms, combinatorics, and optimization.

The selected candidates will be expected to conduct interdisciplinary research and to connect with other institutes in the University. The ability to address relevant applied problems in industry and public sector, among others, is also very valuable. Selected candidates are expected to teach and contribute to the Mathematical and Computational Engineering curriculum. Typical teaching load is three semester-long courses a year, at the graduate or undergraduate level, but for the first year selected candidates can opt for a reduced teaching load of only two courses. Command of Spanish is not required for applying, but the selected candidates are expected to start teaching in Spanish in at most two years.

About IMC. The IMC was recently created as a joint endeavor between the School of Engineering and the Faculty of Mathematics of UC in Santiago. The Institute aims to become in the short term a leading actor in the area of applied mathematics in Latin America by: - developing cutting-edge research in all areas mentioned above; - addressing complex problems in coordination with other disciplines; - training highly-qualified students with a solid background in science and engineering methods; - establishing networks of collaborations with leading research institutions around the world; and - actively transfering knowledge to society in the form of technological development and outreach. The IMC is responsible for the Mathematical Engineering program at UC -- a highly selective undergraduate program within the School of Engineering -- and is in the process of creating interdisciplinary graduate programs in Mathematical and Computational Engineering leading to master and doctoral degrees.
