Tenure-track faculty positions Department of Mathematical Sciences College of Sciences and Arts University of Delaware

The Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Delaware is seeking to hire two tenure-track faculty members. We are especially interested in candidates in Discrete Mathematics and/or Data Science, but other specialties that enhance and extend departmental research strengths will be considered. The appointments will be at the Assistant Professor level.

QUALIFICATIONS AND RESPONSIBILITIES: The successful candidates will have a record of significant research achievements (preferably in the target areas of Discrete Mathematics or Data Science), demonstrated effectiveness at teaching at the university level, and a willingness to engage in departmental and professional service. Applicants must have completed all requirements for a doctoral degree in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics or a closely related discipline by the start of the position. Tenure-track faculty are expected to have an active research program, to seek external funding, to teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and to advise PhD students. Research active faculty typically have a 2-1 teaching load.

MATHEMATICAL SCIENCES AT UD: The Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Delaware ( strives to create a diverse and inclusive environment in the workplace. It has about 30 research-active faculty in the areas of Analysis, Discrete Mathematics, Computational and Applied Mathematics (including Mathematical Biology and Medicine, Fluids and Materials Science, and Inverse Problems), Probability, Mathematics of Quantum Science, and Mathematics Education. The department averages about $1 million in external research funding each year. The department offers PhD programs in Mathematics and Applied Mathematics, and has an enrollment of about 50 PhD students. The university has an active data science community (, and Discrete Mathematics is a popular area of research for the department's PhD students.

The College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Delaware offers exceptional educational experiences including integrated instruction, research and public engagement. With 24 academic departments and more than 25 centers, programs and institutes, the College serves close to 7,000 undergraduate students and over 1,000 graduate students with CAS majors, but also every single University student through foundational course work.
