NSF-RTG Postdoctoral Positions in Applied Mathematics (2023-2024)

 

The Department of Mathematics at the University of Utah invites applications for several non-tenure-track postdoctoral positions in Applied Mathematics. These are 3-year, termed positions that involve research and teaching, and are funded by the department’s NSF Research Training Grant “Optimization and Inversion for the 21st Century Workforce.” Outstanding candidates in areas of optimization, inverse problems, mathematics of materials and fluids, and mathematical climate science, as well as related areas in data science, machine learning and statistics will be considered. Applications from other fields of applied mathematics may be considered as long as they fit in the overarching goals of the RTG.

 

Ideal applicants would align with our existing research strengths, be effective educators, and foster a diverse and inclusive environment within the department and at the University of Utah. Candidates are expected to have completed a Ph.D. in Mathematics or closely related field by July 1, 2024, and must be US citizens, nationals, or permanent residents.

 

Completed applications received before December 15, 2023, will receive full consideration. Review of applications can continue beyond these deadlines until the positions are filled. The position has an anticipated start date of July 1, 2024.

 

Applications must include a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, a statement of research interests and plans, a teaching statement, and four or more letters of recommendation, at least one of which must address the candidate’s teaching record.

 

The Department of Mathematics is committed to excellence in research and teaching at both the graduate and undergraduate level, and works to maintain a respectful, inclusive, and supportive environment where everyone can flourish. Applicants are encouraged to address how they will support the department’s mission and institutional values in their materials.
