Tenure-track Position in Engineering Mathematics
The Department of Mathematics at Florida State University invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in engineering mathematics, broadly construed, beginning in August 2024. The main responsibilities will be to teach undergraduate and graduate courses, mentor students, and conduct research. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in mathematics or a related discipline and postdoctoral experience. The ideal candidate will have experience working in research areas at the crossroads between applied and computational mathematics and mechanical or aerospace engineering, materials science, quantum or photonic engineering, or other areas of engineering that can enhance interactions between the Mathematics Department and the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering.
The Mathematics Department offers BS, MS, and PhD degrees in applied and computational mathematics, as well as degrees in several other areas of mathematics. Currently, there are 16 faculty members (core and affiliated) and 39 graduate students specializing in applied and computational mathematics. There is also significant interaction with faculty members and students in pure mathematics, biomathematics, and financial mathematics through shared research interests such as data science.
Florida State University is one of two flagship research universities in the State University System of Florida and is ranked 18th among all public universities in the country by U.S. News and World Report.
