The Department of Mathematics at the University of Pittsburgh (Oakland campus) invites applications for a Postdoctoral Fellow to work with Professor Jonathan Rubin for 1.5 years, with possible extension, starting in August 2021.

The subject area focuses on Modeling and analysis of network and multiple timescale dynamics in biology with a focus on (but not restricted to) neuroscience. Candidates should have a strong background in dynamical systems and some expertise in computation such as with Python, MATLAB, AUTO or XPP. Candidates may be expected to participate in discussions with experimentalists and analysis of data as part of their research. Responsibilities include teaching one course per semester, participating in research seminars, and the possible mentoring of undergraduate students. Pittsburgh is a medium-sized city with a relatively low cost of living and many of the amenities and cultural opportunities of a larger city. The neuroscience community in Pittsburgh is broad and diverse, with more than 100 faculty members affiliated with the Center for Neuroscience at the University of Pittsburgh and the joint Pitt-Carnegie Mellon University Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition. Required Qualifications: Completion of a Ph.D. degree in mathematics or a closely related field is required prior to the start of appointment. Applicants should have some form of experience teaching in mathematics. Application Instructions: A complete application consists of: (1) curriculum vitae including courses taught and list of programming skills, (2) statement of research interests, (3) at least two letters of recommendation, and (4) a cover letter for the application briefly commenting on fit for the position and evidence of commitment to diversity and inclusion. Any additional relevant supporting material submitted will be considered by Professor Rubin. Application review will begin on November 30th and will continue until the position is filled.

The Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences is committed to fostering a diverse, inclusive environment. The University of Pittsburgh is an Affirmative Action, Equal Opportunity Employer and values equality of opportunity, human dignity and diversity. Members of all groups under-represented in academia are especially encouraged to apply.
