The College is interested in and values candidates who have experience working with diverse and underserved populations, and have demonstrated a commitment to improving the diversity, equity and inclusivity of their academic communities.

Excellence in research and teaching is at the core of our mission. The graduate program of the Department of Mathematics is consistently ranked among the best by US News, with several research areas in the top ten. Our core faculty includes around 50 tenured and tenure-track members, many of whom have attracted top national and international distinctions. Moreover, we are home to a talented group of professional track and postdoctoral faculty, and a large and diverse population of highly motivated and talented graduate students. Strengths in our research program include many areas in pure and applied mathematics, as well as interdisciplinary fields intersecting engineering, neuroscience, computer science, medicine, finance, and natural sciences, among others.

As the flagship public university in Texas, a core part of our mission is the education of undergraduate students from all over this large and varied state, in an inclusive and supportive environment. Austin, the capital of Texas, is well known for its high quality of living, its thriving economy, and for being a center for high-technology industry, including companies such as Amazon, AMD, Apple, Applied Materials, AT&T, Dell, Google, IBM, National Instruments, and Samsung.

Each R.H. Bing Fellow holds an Instructorship in the Department of Mathematics with a teaching load of one course in each semester. The combined Instructorship-Fellowship stipend for nine months is $60,000, which is supplemented by a travel allowance of $1000. Pending satisfactory performance of teaching duties, the Fellowship can be renewed for two additional years. Applicants must show outstanding promise in research. Bing Fellowship applicants will automatically be considered for other departmental openings at the postdoctoral level, so a separate application for such a position is unnecessary.

Applications should be supported by four or more letters of recommendation, at least one of which speaks to the applicant's teaching credentials. The screening of applications will begin on December 1, 2022.
