The successful candidate is expected to develop a strong research program and to pursue external funding, and should be committed to providing stellar education to undergraduate and graduate students. In addition, the candidate should be committed to supervising undergraduate research and graduate dissertations. Candidates must possess a doctoral degree in mathematics or a very closely related field by August 16, 2018. Preference will be given to applicants with postdoctoral experience.

Applicants should complete the online application at http://facultyjobs.ua.edu/postings/41526. The application should include a letter of application, a current curriculum vita, a research statement (addressing your own research as well as possible affiliation with ATI and/or AWI), a teaching statement (including teaching stochastic processes and/or statistics), and three letters of recommendation (one of which concerns teaching in general and possibility of teaching stochastic processes and/or statistics). The recommendation letters should be submitted electronically through MathJobs (www.mathjobs.org) or should be sent electronically to: math@ua.edu. Applications will be reviewed on an ongoing basis starting October 30, and will continue to be accepted until the positions are filled. Interviews may start as early as mid to late November.
