 The Department of Mathematics and Statistics in conjunction with the Institute of Environment at Florida International University is seeking applications for a full-time, tenure-track, open-rank faculty position in a new cross-disciplinary graduate program in Environmental Finance and Risk Management (EFRM) to begin in August 2023. The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at FIU is committed to an inclusive and diverse work environment and expects all applicants to be equally committed. The position will involve teaching and research focusing on mathematical modeling of the interaction of natural phenomena and modern financial systems. The vision for the EFRM is to create a first-of-its-kind program that combines mathematical finance and environmental sciences to devise new financial instruments to mitigate, adapt, and reduce environmental risk and incentivize sustainability. EFRM uses mathematics, probability, and statistics to connect how random and extreme events, in discrete and continuous time, are modeled and managed in the financial, insurance, and various scientific disciplines. 

 A Ph.D. in Financial Engineering, Mathematics, Statistics, Quantitative Finance, or a related field is required. Further qualifications include potential in research involving mathematical modeling of complex systems, a record of student supervision at the M.S. and Ph.D. levels, and a desire to engage in cross- disciplinary research. 

Qualified candidates at all career stages are encouraged to apply to Job Opening ID 528351 at https://facultycareers.fiu.edu/ and attach a cover letter, curriculum vitae that includes information on any past and current extramural funding (agency, amount, grant period, role), a statement of research accomplishment and plans, statement on teaching and student mentoring, and a diversity statement (see https://go.fiu.edu/diversitystatement). FIU has a very diverse student population, and all applicants should demonstrate their ability to work with a diverse student population. 

Hiring will be considered at the rank appropriate. For applicants to a senior rank position (associate professor or professor), preference will be given to those having current or forthcoming extramural research funding transferable to FIU. 

 Candidates will be requested to provide names and contact information for at least 3 references who will be contacted as determined by the search committee. The search committee will begin reviewing applications on February 1, 2023 and continue until the position is filled.
