Careers in the Mathematical Sciences Department

The Department of Mathematical Sciences invites applications for a two or three-year Postdoctoral Teaching Fellow beginning August 2022. This twelve-month appointment has a teaching responsibility of three courses per academic year and one course per summer.

The Postdoctoral Teaching Fellow will be part of a vibrant teaching faculty and will be expected to engage in departmental and student activities. In addition to developing the Postdoctoral Teaching Fellow into a highly qualified candidate for permanent positions with a significant teaching component, the position will also provide an opportunity for the Fellow to engage in research-related activities with CMU faculty and undergraduate students.

Applicants with backgrounds in all areas of mathematics and a strong interest in undergraduate mathematics education are welcome. All qualified candidates, including women and members of underrepresented groups, are encouraged to apply. Applicants who have experience working with a diverse range of students or who can otherwise contribute to a climate of diversity, equity, and inclusion are strongly encouraged to identify their experiences in their cover letter.

The Department of Mathematical Sciences has over thirty-five tenure track and teaching track faculty members and supports over 60 graduate students and 300 undergraduate mathematics majors pursuing a variety of degree programs and concentrations.

A Ph.D. in mathematics or closely related disciplines is required. Preference will be given to candidates who have shown outstanding promise and/or excellence in teaching mathematics. Candidates must also display evidence of a strong continuing research program and potential for mentoring and advising undergraduates of diverse backgrounds and demographics.

The Department of Mathematical Sciences is committed to increasing the diversity of our community on a range of intellectual and cultural dimensions. Carnegie Mellon considers applicants for employment without regard to, and does not discriminate on the basis of, gender, race, protected veteran status, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, and any additional legally protected status.

Applicants should submit all materials electronically through Interfolio and MathJobs. This includes a cover letter, a curriculum vita, a teaching statement, a diversity statement, and a research statement. At least three letters of reference, with at least one addressing the candidate’s teaching ability, will be solicited through MathJobs.

For full consideration, applications should be submitted by December 15, 2021.

The Department of Mathematical Sciences and the Charles C. Hoskinson Center for Formal Mathematics plan to make a joint post-doctoral appointment beginning September 1, 2022.

The department has research groups in applied analysis, computational mathematics, combinatorics, discrete and convex geometry, logic, and mathematical finance and stochastic analysis. Applicants are expected to show exceptional research promise, as well as clear evidence of achievement, and should have research interests that intersect those of the current faculty of the department.

The Hoskinson Center is dedicated to the development and dissemination of formal mathematics. The successful candidate will be expected to spend half their time working with the Center to explore ways of using the Lean programming language and proof assistant in their research and teaching.

Preference will be given to candidates who have shown outstanding promise and/or excellent accomplishments in research. Background with formal methods and the use of a proof assistant is desirable, but not required; a demonstrated interest in the use of novel computational methods in research and/or teaching is sufficient. A Ph.D. in mathematics or closely related disciplines is required.
