Temple University, Department of Mathematics, is seeking one Postdoctoral Assistant Professor in Applied Mathematics starting Fall 2020. The initial appointment is for two years, with the possibility of extension to three years. The teaching load for the first two years is one course per semester.

The candidate is expected to work with Prof. Benjamin Seibold (Temple University Mathematics) on a multi-institution project, supported by the Department of Energy, on the development of technologies to improve the energy efficiency of highway traffic via the control of a few automated vehicles. This research involves an active collaboration with teams at UC Berkeley, Rutgers University Camden, University of Arizona, and Vanderbilt University.

Expertise in traffic modeling, differential equations, computational methods for flows, high-performance computing, control theory, transportation, and/or robotics is welcome, and should be stressed in the cover letter. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in Mathematics, or a related field, by the time of appointment.

The candidate is expected to take a leadership role in Temple's Center for Computational Mathematics and Modeling, and to actively participate in the cross-disciplinary multi-institutional collaborative research effort, including engagement with simulations and hardware developed at the other project institutions.

Applications should be submitted through mathjobs.org and should include a cover letter, a CV, a research statement, a teaching statement, and three letters of recommendation, one of which should address the candidate's teaching qualifications.

Please direct all inquiries to seibold@temple.edu (PI) and/or Brian.Rider@temple.edu (Department Chair). For more information on the department and related research efforts, please visit http://math.temple.edu and http://math.temple.edu/~seibold/ .
