Portland State University (PSU) invites applications for three tenure-track faculty positions in the Fariborz Maseeh Department of Mathematics & Statistics (two assistant professors and one open rank assistant professor or higher). These positions are part of a cluster hire in Computational Science for a Sustainable Future. Of particular interest are candidates whose expertise intersects strongly with one or more of the following themes:
Theory of data-driven decision making and its application to pressing societal concerns on climate, environment, epidemiology, or health care;
High performance computing focusing on scalability or energy efficiency;
Physical applied mathematics that combines physical principles with mathematical techniques for building computational tools to address modern sustainability challenges.

The successful candidates will teach both undergraduate and graduate courses and direct undergraduate projects and graduate theses as well as develop and maintain a strong research program while actively pursuing external funding.  Applicants must  have a Ph.D. in Mathematics or equivalent and provide evidence of research and teaching ability.  Candidates with A.B.D. will be considered but must have the Ph.D. degree by their start date.

The department has previously leveraged large philanthropic investments to successfully recruit leading scholars in computational science. Building on these successes, this cluster hire will enhance the department's research portfolio in computational science. The department offers growth opportunities within a nurturing atmosphere where field leaders in computational science are invested in collaborative group building and mentoring.
