Department of Computational Applied Mathematics and Operations Research (CMOR) Rice University

The Department of Computational Applied Mathematics and Operations Research (www.cmor.rice.edu) at Rice University in Houston, Texas, invites applications for Pfeiffer Postdoctoral Instructor position. All postdoctoral instructors in the Department are appointed for two academic years with possible extension for a third year. The term of appointment will begin on July 1, 2024.

Instructors teach one undergraduate lecture course each semester and conduct research in collaboration with a faculty mentor. The Pfeiffer Postdoctoral Instructor position honor Professor Paul Pfeiffer (1917-2012), a founding member of the department.

Rice University is a private research university with a long tradition of excellence in undergraduate and graduate science and engineering education. The Department of Computational Applied Mathematics and Operations Research offers an outstanding research environment and hosts research programs in optimization, operations research, numerical linear algebra, control and inverse problems, partial differential equations, and scientific computing. Interdisciplinary work is a fundamental aspect of the Department's program. The research interests of the Pfeiffer Postdoctoral Instructors should align with the research programs of the Department.

We seek greater representation of women, minorities, people with disabilities, and veterans in disciplines in which they have historically been underrepresented; to attract international students from a wider range of countries and backgrounds; to accelerate progress in building a faculty and staff who are diverse in background and thought; and we support an inclusive environment that fosters interaction and understanding within our diverse community.

Qualifications Candidates must have received or completed the requirements for a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics on or after January 1, 2022, and have demonstrated potential for excellence in both research and teaching.

Application Instructions Each application must include a cover letter, a current curriculum vitae with a publication list, a research statement, a teaching statement, and a diversity statement. Applicants should also arrange for three recommendation letters.
