The newly funded NSF Research Training Group in Computational Mathematics for Data Science within the Department of Mathematics at Emory University invites applications for a Postdoctoral Fellowship position. Appointments are normally for two years with the possibility of renewal for a third year. Applicants must be citizens, nationals, or permanent residents of the United States, have a PhD in Mathematics or a closely related field (the PhD must be completed by September 1, 2021 for a Fall 2021 start, or by January 1, 2022 for a Spring 2022 start), and show evidence or promise of excellence in research and teaching.

We are especially interested in candidates with research interests broadly related to data science (e.g., data assimilation, machine learning, numerical optimization, linear algebra and PDEs). Candidates must also have a strong background in numerical analysis and scientific computing.

The successful candidate is also expected to engage in all RTG activities. Postdoctoral Fellows will have the opportunity to teach two courses per year (one in Fall and one in Spring semesters), conduct research, collaborate with faculty, and work with undergraduate and graduate students in our dynamic computational mathematics research group. RTG Postdoctoral Fellowships include an allowance for travel and computing equipment, and access to state-of-the-art computing resources, including GPU clusters.
