The Department of Math and Statistics anticipates the appointment of an Assistant Professor in Applied Mathematics beginning August 2024. Minimum qualifications include a Ph.D. in applied mathematics, mathematics, statistics, or a related field by the appointment start date.

The Department seeks candidates pursuing fundamental research in all areas of applied mathematics, such as, but not limited to, numerical analysis, optimization, scientific computing, machine learning, applied and asymptotic analysis, dynamical systems, and mathematical statistics. Preference will be given to candidates whose work has significant applications in the biological, engineering, or physical sciences and who can foster ties with other units on campus and with local national laboratories and industries. The Department's current strengths in applied mathematics include numerical analysis, high performance computing, nonlinear waves, continuum and fluid dynamics, biological modeling, uncertainty quantification, multigrid methods, electromagnetics, and classical relativity.

Specifically, preference will be given to candidates as follows: A. An independent research program and an emerging national/international reputation, or in the case of junior candidates, expectation of such. B. Commitment to teaching and service, and the expectation of excellence in teaching; potential for mentoring graduate students; interest in undergraduate mathematics education. C. Expected contributions to research in areas of interest to the Department and ability to help expand the group's interactions with other departments and/or local laboratories and industry. D. Research interests motivated by scientific problems. E. Demonstrated commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and student success, as well as working with broadly diverse communities.

Albuquerque has a rich heritage and boasts a vibrant scientific environment that provides many opportunities for research collaborations and funding. UNM houses the Center for Advanced Research Computing, the Center for Quantum Information and Control, and the Center for High Technology Materials, among others, and it is near Sandia National Laboratories, Kirtland’s Air Force Research Laboratory, and Los Alamos National Laboratory.

A complete application consists of a cover letter (1-2 pages), curriculum vitae, a description of research interests (3-5 pages), teaching statement (3-5 pages), and a diversity statement. Applicants must also submit the name, affiliation, address, and email address for three references.

For best consideration, completed applications should be received by October 27, 2023. The Applicant is required to provide official certification of successful completion of all degree requirements prior to her/his initial employment with UNM.
