The School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences (SMSS) at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) invites applications for two postdoctoral positions in the areas of applied/computational mathematics and statistics. Candidates should have recently received a PhD in mathematics, applied/computational mathematics, statistics, or related fields and should demonstrate excellent research potential and capacity for effective teaching. 
The SMSS is part of the College of Sciences at UTRGV. With over 182 faculty and 4,000 undergraduate and graduate students, the College of Sciences takes pride in preparing students for diverse careers. SMSS faculty have active research programs in statistics, pure and applied mathematics, and mathematics education with over 40 tenure-track and tenured faculty. The school offers multiple graduate and undergraduate degrees in statistics and mathematics and is developing a new Ph.D. program in Mathematics and Statistics with Interdisciplinary Applications, currently at the final stages of approval. Excellent opportunities exist for collaborations with colleagues in several colleges and departments across the university. These include the School of Medicine, School of Nursing, College of Health Professions, College of Sciences, College of Engineering and Computer Science, and the College of Business and Entrepreneurship. SMSS faculty closely collaborate with researchers from the South Texas Institute of Diabetes and Obesity, Doctor’s Hospital at Renaissance, and the University of Texas School of Public Health.  

The emphasis of these positions is on research related to the Mathematical and Statistical Sciences and applications of these disciplines. The teaching load will be one to two courses per semester. The positions are for one (1) year with the possibility of renewal for up to three (3) years based on performance and funding availability.

Applicants must have Ph.D. in Mathematics, Applied/Computational Mathematics, Statistics, or related fields from an accredited university, with at least 18 graduate hours in a mathematics content area. Ph.D. candidates will be considered, but the degree should be awarded no later than the proposed starting date.  Applicants with research interests in applied/computational mathematics with emphasis in interdisciplinary research. Teaching experience and the ability to use technology to support teaching and learning are preferred. Faculty will be expected to contribute to the upcoming Ph.D. program in Mathematics and Statistics with Interdisciplinary Applications likely to be launched in Fall 2021.
