Tufts University, Department of Mathematics Norbert Wiener Assistant Professorship in Computational PDEs

Position Description: The Department of Mathematics at Tufts University is seeking a term-limited Norbert Wiener Assistant Professorship in Computational Partial Differential Equations (PDEs) to begin September 1, 2020. The initial contract is for one year and is renewable for up to two more years. We welcome candidates with a diverse research background in computational PDEs with an emphasis on algorithm development and scalable implementation. The specific effort of the position will be dedicated to developing advanced finite-element discretizations and multilevel solvers for simulating complex multiscale physical systems, described by coupled systems of time-dependent nonlinear PDEs. These systems present many interesting challenges common to models used in physics, mathematics and, more generally, in the numerical simulation and analysis of physical phenomena. The successful candidate will be expected to join current interdisciplinary research within the Department in the fields of Scientific Computing and Computational Applied Mathematics. This includes application areas such as the simulation of flow in porous media, computational fluid dynamics, electromagnetic materials, and spectral graph algorithms to name a few.

Qualifications: A Ph.D. in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics or a closely related field, evidence of excellent teaching, and promise of strong research are required.

Application Requirements: Applications should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, research statement, and teaching statement, which should all be submitted through https://www.mathjobs.org/jobs/jobs/14996. In addition, applicants should arrange for three letters of recommendation to be submitted through https://www.mathjobs.org/jobs/jobs/14996. If a recommender cannot submit online, we will accept signed PDF attachments sent to xiaozhe.hu@tufts.edu, or paper letters mailed to CompPDE Search Committee Chair, Department of Mathematics, Bromfield-Pearson Hall, Tufts University, Medford, MA 02155. Review of applications will begin on Dec. 1, 2019 and will continue until the position is filled. Tufts University, founded in 1852, prioritizes quality teaching, highly competitive basic and applied research, and a commitment to active citizenship locally, regionally, and globally. Tufts University also prides itself on creating a diverse, equitable, and inclusive community. Current and prospective employees of the university are expected to have and continuously develop skill in, and disposition for, positively engaging with a diverse population of faculty, staff, and students. Tufts University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. We are committed to increasing the diversity of our faculty and staff and fostering their success when hired. Members of underrepresented groups are welcome and strongly encouraged to apply.
