The Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Memphis invites applications for the Ralph Faudree Assistant Professorship in Mathematics. This is a non-tenure track (postdoctoral) position for a fixed 2-year period, extendable to a third year upon satisfactory review, with a target start date in August 2022. Duties include carrying out a collaborative or independent research program in an area of Combinatorics or Graph Theory, teaching a 2/1 course load each year (three courses per year), and mentoring undergraduate and graduate students. Full health benefits are included.

Dr. Ralph Faudree was a noted coauthor of Paul Erdős and built his career in mathematics at the University of Memphis, serving as provost for 11 years and helping transform the Department of Mathematical Sciences into the research-oriented department that it is today. The combinatorial traditions he helped build remain strong, with active members currently working in Graph Theory and Additive Combinatorics, and a new tenure-track professorship set to begin in August 2022. All strong candidates in some area of combinatorics are encouraged to apply, particularly those with potential for collaboration or applications of Combinatorics in areas currently represented.

Candidates must have completed a PhD in Mathematics before the position start date and need to show strong research potential in an area of mathematics related to Combinatorics, as evidenced through publications, preprints and letters of recommendation. They must have adequate English skills and should be capable of teaching mathematics at all levels of instruction. Details are available at
