The start date is flexible, with a target of Fall 2022 or later. The position is affiliated with VandyGRAF, Vanderbilt University’s newly formed initiative for GRavity, wAves, and Fluids – a collaborative, interdisciplinary initiative. Vanderbilt University is prepared to generously support the position with competitive resources and conditions.

VandyGRAF is a research-focused enterprise that cuts across traditional discipline boundaries by providing mathematicians, physicists, astrophysicists, and data scientists with the resources and space to connect and collaborate on projects of outstanding scientific merit. A current list of initiative members can be found at https://as.vanderbilt.edu/physics/gwaf/. VandyGRAF is developing into a vibrant entity featuring newly added tenure-track members, postdoctoral scholars, graduate students, and substantial resources to support initiative-affiliated activities, including dedicated space in a newly renovated building.

Applications are solicited from researchers working in all areas of mathematics connected with one or more of the following:

  • Geometric analysis related to gravity, waves, fluids, kinetic theory, or related areas
  • General relativity: mathematical or numerical
  • Fluid mechanics: mathematical or numerical
  • Mathematical physics

Vanderbilt University has a strong institutional commitment to fostering excellence through an academically and culturally diverse community of scholars. For example, the Fisk-Vanderbilt Masters-to-PhD program was founded in the Department of Physics & Astronomy and has become a national model for the recruitment, retention, and training of talented underrepresented minority scholars in physics and astronomy. Given our diverse graduate cohort, we welcome candidates with experience in equity, diversity, and inclusion in teaching, mentoring, research, or service.
