Position Description:    

The Department of Mathematical Sciences at Florida Atlantic University invites applications for a tenure-track position at the assistant professor level in the area of cryptology, starting in August 2023. We will consider applicants knowledgeable in the general area of cryptology. Preference will be given to candidates with several broad areas of interest including, but not limited to, mathematical foundations of public-key cryptography, post-quantum cryptography (e.g., based on error-correcting codes, lattice problems, or polynomial systems of equations), and algorithmic number theory. In general, we will give higher priority to the overall originality and promise of the candidate’s work rather than to the sub-area specialization. Responsibilities for this position will be research, teaching, and professional service. The successful candidate is expected to apply for and secure external research funding, and actively participate in interdisciplinary programs.

The Department of Mathematical Sciences is a collegial and research-active department demonstrating excellence in teaching, research, and service. We are home to 27 tenure-track or tenured faculty members, 15 faculty members in non-tenure-track positions, and more than 40 graduate teaching/research assistants from diverse backgrounds. Our department has an established national and international reputation for research innovation through our Center for Cryptology and Information Security. FAU is also recognized as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance/Cyber Defense Research (CAE-R) for academic years 2019-2024. More information about the department can be found at: http://www.math.fau.edu/

Diversity and Inclusion are core values of the Department of Mathematical Sciences. We believe that the educational environment is enhanced when diverse groups of people with diverse ideas come together to learn. Applicants whose work incorporates a global perspective and a demonstrated commitment to diversity of thought in higher education are particularly encouraged to apply.

Informal inquiries can be addressed to: Dr. Edoardo Persichetti, Chair of the Search Committee, (epersichetti@fau.edu ). Review of applications will begin January 15, 2023 and will continue until the position is filled.

This position is part of a major strategic hiring initiative in the Charles Schmidt College of Science that will build on our areas of strength in Environment, Health, and Data Science. More information on our hiring initiative can be found at: https://www.fau.edu/science-hiring/. More information about the College of Science can be found at: http://science.fau.edu/.

Minimum Qualifications: Candidates must possess an earned doctorate in mathematics or a closely related discipline at the time of application. Postdoctoral experience is preferred. Candidates should have a strong publication record commensurate with their experience, demonstrated potential for establishing programs of extramurally funded and independent research, and clear promise of excellent instructional capacity. Candidates should demonstrate skill in the understanding of cultural differences and be able to foster and create educational opportunities where all student populations thrive.
