Assistant/Associate Professor in Geometry, Dynamics, and Learning (tenure-track / tenured)

Division of Mathematical Sciences, School of Physical & Mathematical Sciences,
NTU Singapore

The College of Science seeks a diverse and inclusive workforce and is committed to equality of opportunity. We welcome applications from all and recruit on the basis of merit, regardless of age, race, gender, religion, marital status and family responsibilities, or disability.

In association with the creation of a new Centre in Geometry, Dynamics, and Learning (CGDL), we have an opening for a member of faculty to join NTU at the Assistant/Associate Professor level. This Centre is envisioned to foster the development of new methods coming from Geometry, Topology, Dynamical Systems, and Stochastics for the solution of problems in Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Mechanical Control, Shape Analysis, and Robotics. NTU provides a rich environment for interdisciplinary collaborations in these areas, including the Robotics Research Centre and the Computational Intelligence research lab at the School of Computer Science and Engineering. Candidates should have a Ph.D. degree in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics or closely related fields. This position may be held jointly between the School of Physical & Mathematical Sciences and the School of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering. Areas and priorities that we wish to develop and support through this appointment include:

  • Mathematical foundations of learning theory and artificial intelligence
  • Topological and geometric data analysis
  • Mathematical modeling methods for mechanical systems, robotics, time series analysis, and forecasting
  • Numerical and stochastic methods for applications in mechanics, financial econometrics, and/or the biomedical sciences
  • Machine learning of dynamical processes
  • Numerical methods for mechanical systems, variational integrators
  • High dimensional methods and numerics for nonlinear systems
