The Department of Mathematics at the University of Arizona welcomes applications for up to six Postdoctoral Research Associates. These are three-year postdoctoral positions (non-tenure eligible) with an appointment beginning in Fall 2018.

Over the last five years, a large percentage of the faculty has been awarded grants and contracts from external funding agencies, with total awards averaging about $4.2 million per year.

Review of applications will begin on November 1, 2017, and applications will be accepted until the positions are filled. Candidates should identify up to three faculty as potential mentors, and explain how their research can both benefit from, and enhance, our research endeavors. Candidates are expected to have a Ph.D. by the time of appointment.

Outstanding UA benefits include health, dental, vision, and life insurance; paid vacation, sick leave, and holidays; UA/ASU/NAU tuition reduction for the employee and qualified family members; and access to UA recreation and cultural activities.
