Position Description:    

The Department of Mathematics at Dartmouth College invites applications for at least one postdoctoral appointment with start date August 1, 2023, although earlier start dates are possible. This is a non-tenure track position and is renewable for up to three years contingent upon performance and subject to budgetary approval. The postdoctoral fellow will join a research team on a current MURI project sponsored by the ONR entitled Integrated Foundations of Sensing, Modeling, and Data Assimilation for Sea Ice Prediction. The initial appointment is for 12 months. Salary is set at $65,508.

The ideal candidate should have a solid background in numerical computation, with expertise in some area related to the project, for example, data assimilation, computational inverse problems, uncertainty quantification, sea ice modeling, image reconstruction and registration. It is also beneficial to have some understanding of related data acquisition technologies, such as synthetic aperture radar, or some similar data modality. While expertise in all of these areas is not expected, programming expertise is essential.

Dartmouth College, a member of the Ivy League, is located in Hanover, New Hampshire (on the Vermont border). Dartmouth has a beautiful, historic campus, located in a scenic area on the Connecticut River. Recreational opportunities abound in all four seasons. The department (http://www.math.dartmouth.edu) is home to 22 tenured and tenure-track faculty members as well as 24 visiting scholars and postdoctoral fellows. The Department of Mathematics is in the School of Arts and Sciences, and has a strong Ph.D. program and outstanding undergraduate majors.

The post-doctoral appointee may have the opportunity to teach one or two ten-week courses; contingent on course availability in the Mathematics Department and teaching qualifications. Salary will be adjusted accordingly and set by the Associate Dean of the Arts and Sciences Division.
