Careers in the Mathematical Sciences Department

The Department of Mathematical Sciences at Carnegie Mellon University expects to appoint a Shelly Visiting Associate Professor for the 2023-2024 academic year. This position, created through a gift of Eugene P. Shelly, is intended for experienced mathematics faculty members on leave or sabbatical from institutions that focus primarily on teaching. The idea is to give Carnegie Mellon faculty and graduate students an opportunity to improve their teaching skills through interaction with the candidate, while simultaneously providing the candidate with an enriched research experience.

The Department of Mathematical Sciences is committed to increasing the diversity of its community on a range of intellectual and cultural dimensions. We welcome faculty applicants who will contribute to this diversity through their research, teaching and service.

Successful applicants will be expected to provide evidence of a strong teaching record. Appointment at the level of Visiting Professor may also be considered.

Applicants should submit all materials electronically through MathJobs and Interfolio. This includes a cover letter, curriculum vitae, list of publications, a statement describing teaching accomplishments, and three letters of recommendation to be solicited via MathJobs.

Equal Employment Opportunity Statement

Carnegie Mellon University shall abide by the requirements of 41 CFR §§ 60-1.4(a), 60-300.5(a) and 60-741.5(a). These regulations prohibit discrimination against qualified individuals based on their status as protected veterans or individuals with disabilities, and prohibit discrimination against all individuals based on their race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. Moreover, these regulations require that covered prime contractors and subcontractors take affirmative action to employ and advance in employment individuals without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, protected veteran status or disability.

The Department of Mathematical Sciences at Carnegie Mellon University invites applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of assistant professor or higher to begin September 1, 2024. The search is focused on candidates with expertise in computational mathematics, numerical analysis, optimization, and related areas. Addressing applied problems and participation in interdisciplinary efforts is also valued.

Qualifications

Preference will be given to candidates who have demonstrated excellence in research and have a vigorous research program.

The Department of Mathematical Sciences is committed to increasing the diversity of its community on a range of intellectual and cultural dimensions and is part of a College and University that is proactive to include more members of previously under-represented groups. We seek candidates who, through their research, teaching, and/or service will contribute to the diversity and excellence of our academic community.

Application Instructions

Applicants should submit all materials electronically through MathJobs and Interfolio. This includes a cover letter, curriculum vita, list of publications, a statement describing current and planned research, a teaching statement, and a statement describing how, through their research, teaching and/or service, they plan to contribute to and foster diversity and inclusion in mathematics. Candidates should also arrange for at least three letters of recommendation that will be solicited through MathJobs.

The review applications will begin on November 1, 2023. However, applications may be accepted and reviewed until the position is filled.
