The Department of Applied Mathematics, in the College of Computing, has 15 tenured/tenure-track faculty, and constitutes a vibrant research hub where faculty members conduct research in many areas of mathematics and statistics with a wide range of applications. Our research is funded by various government agencies and private companies. The new hire is expected to bolster our ongoing research and teaching in applied analysis, computational mathematics, data science, discrete mathematics, financial mathematics, stochastics, and statistics. The Department of Applied Mathematics is the only mathematics/statistics department at Illinois Tech that offers BS through PhD degrees, including a nationally ranked Master of Data Science in partnership with the Department of Computer Science, and the newly launched Master of FinTech. We teach mathematics, statistics, and data science to nearly all undergraduate students at Illinois Tech and many graduate students as well.


Illinois Institute of Technology is a private Ph.D.-granting research university with world- renowned programs in engineering, architecture, the sciences, humanities, psychology, business, law, and design. Founded in 1890, Illinois Tech was born different. It was built on the promise set forth in minister Frank Wakely Gunsaulus’ “Million Dollar Sermon” to provide access to higher education for students from all different backgrounds and to make a difference in the world through technology-oriented education. This guiding mission and purpose – where students, including those underrepresented in technology, could prepare for meaningful roles in a changing industrial society and achieve professional and economic advancement – remains just as relevant today. Thus, diversity and inclusion are part of the day-to-day experience at Illinois Tech and a central component of its culture. As such, Illinois Tech is home to a diverse and global student population, is committed to providing opportunities to enhance the diversity of its faculty and staff, and strongly encourages applicants from all backgrounds to apply for this position, especially those underrepresented in the field.
