  • Post-doctoral Positions in Stochastic AnalysisThe Department of Mathematical Sciences desires to make a two- or three-year post-doctoral appointment in stochastic analysis beginning September 2017. Applicants should submit all materials electronically at www.mathjobs.org. This includes the AMS Standard Cover Sheet, a cover letter, a curriculum vita, list of publications, a statement describing current and planned research, and three letters of recommendation. Applicants who are unable to submit their applications electronically may mail them to: Stochastic Analysis Post-Doc, Department of Mathematical Sciences, Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA 15213. For full consideration, applications should be submitted by November 30, 2016. Carnegie Mellon is an EEO/Affirmative Action Employer -- M/F/Disability/Veteran. We particularly encourage applications from candidates who have a demonstrated track record in mentoring and nurturing female and under-represented minority students.

  • Center for Nonlinear Analysis - Postdoc RecruitmentThe Center for Nonlinear Analysis anticipates making postdoctoral appointments beginning September 2017 in applied analysis, including the general areas of nonlinear partial differential equations, calculus of variations, computational mathematics, and their applications. These will be three-year joint appointments by the Center and the Department of Mathematical Sciences. Postdoctoral Associates will teach one course per semester. Applicants should submit all materials electronically at www.mathjobs.org. This includes the AMS Standard Cover Sheet, a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, a statement describing current and planned research, and three letters of recommendation.

    Applications are due on or before January 15, 2017. Review of applications will begin on November 1, 2016, and will continue until the positions are filled.

    Carnegie Mellon University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer and encourages applications from women and minorities.

  • Tenure-Track PositionsThe Department of Mathematical Sciences at Carnegie Mellon University invites applications for one or more tenure-track positions, possibly at a senior level, to begin September 1, 2016.

    Applications should be submitted by November 15, 2015 for full consideration.

    The focus of the search is the area of probability, broadly construed. The Department has strengths in mathematical finance, applied analysis, and combinatorics, and seeks outstanding candidates in the area of probability that would complement or enhance these or other centers of excellence within the Department or the University.

    Preference will be given to candidates who have shown outstanding promise and/or excellent accomplishments in research in this area, and are pursuing a vigorous research program including major contributions beyond the doctoral dissertation. Promise of excellent ability to teach and mentor students of diverse backgrounds is a plus.

    The Department of Mathematical Sciences is committed to increasing our faculty diversity. Carnegie Mellon considers applicants for employment without regard to, and does not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, protected veteran status, disability, or any other legally protected status.

    Applicants should submit all materials electronically at www.mathjobs.org. This includes a cover letter, curriculum vita, list of publications, a statement describing current and planned research, and at least three letters of recommendation. Recommenders who are unable to submit their letters electronically may mail them to: Probability Appointments Committee, Department of Mathematical Sciences, Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA 15213.

    Applications may be accepted and reviewed until any open positions are filled.

  • Zeev Nehari Visiting Assistant ProfessorThe Department of Mathematical Sciences at Carnegie Mellon University invites applications for the Zeev Nehari Visiting Assistant Professor. This position was established to honor the memory of Professor Nehari, who had a long and distinguished career in the Department of Mathematical Sciences.

    This position is available for a period of three years, beginning in September 2016, and carries a teaching load of three one-semester courses during the academic year. Applicants are expected to show exceptional research promise, as well as clear evidence of achievement and should have research interests which intersect those of current faculty of the Department.

  • Eugene P. Shelly Visiting Associate ProfessorThe Department of Mathematical Sciences at Carnegie Mellon University expects to annually appoint a Shelly Visiting Associate Professor for a term of one academic year. This position, created through a gift of Eugene P. Shelly, is intended for regular mathematics faculty members at 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 visitor, while simultaneously providing the visitor with an enriched research experience. Application procedures are set each fall.

  • Assistant Teaching Professor of Mathematics, Carnegie Mellon University, QatarThe Department of Mathematical Sciences at Carnegie Mellon University invites applications for a full-time (9-month), position as Assistant Teaching Professor at Carnegie Mellon's Qatar campus beginning in Fall 2016.

    Carnegie Mellon's Qatar campus is a branch campus of Carnegie Mellon University and has served a diverse student body since 2004. CMUQ offer undergraduate majors in Biological Sciences, Business Administration, Computational Biology, Computer Science, and Information Systems. Current enrollment is approximately 400 students representing 37 countries. Approximately 40% of the students are Qatari. All classes are coeducational, and roughly 60% of the students on the CMUQ campus are women.

    The initial appointment is for a period of three years. Assistant Teaching Professor is a nontenure-track faculty career position with provision for renewal and promotion to Associate Teaching and Full Teaching Professor. The standard teaching load for teaching-track faculty on the CMU Qatar campus is 2 courses per semester.

    A doctoral degree in mathematics or a very closely related discipline is required. Preference will be given to candidates who have demonstrated excellence or exceptional promise in classroom teaching and student advising and mentoring. Promise of excellent ability to teach and mentor students of diverse backgrounds is a plus.
