Position Description

The Department of Mathematics in the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Washington (Seattle) invites applications for a full-time, open-rank tenure-stream position. Candidates will be considered for the Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor rank, either tenure-track or tenured, depending upon experience and qualifications. This position has an anticipated start date of Autumn 2022 and will have a 9-month service period. UW faculty engage in teaching, research, and service. The successful candidate will be expected to teach a full-time load of undergraduate and graduate courses, to engage in mentoring, and to participate in service to the department and the profession.

Applicants are required to have a PhD, or foreign equivalent, and an established and strong research record in mathematics. The candidate’s research must be in geometry, interpreted broadly as the study of manifolds with structure; or topology, including algebraic, geometric, low-dimensional, and/or combinatorial topology.

We seek candidates who are leaders in their field, as demonstrated by their records in publication, mentoring, teaching, diversity, and service. Junior candidates are encouraged to also apply for our tenure-track assistant professor position.

Application Instructions

Applications should include a cover letter, the American Mathematical Society’s Cover Sheet for Academic Employment, a curriculum vitae, statements of research, diversity, and teaching interests, and at least three letters of recommendation.

If you have additional letters regarding teaching or research that you would like to include with your application, you may do so by uploading them via the "Additional Documents" feature on Interfolio.

Candidates must include a diversity statement that addresses their contributions to diversity, equity, and inclusion. This should be a one-to-two-page statement highlighting past contributions and future plans to advance equity, diversity, and inclusion, with attention to how the applicant has supported the success of students from racial, ethnic, and gender backgrounds that are underrepresented in mathematics.
