  • Post-doctoral Position in Applied Mathematics / Scientific ComputingDepartment of Mathematical Sciences invites applications for a 2-year postdoctoral position in applied mathematics / scientific computing with emphasis on image processing and data analysis. The position associated with the project "Transport and other Lagrangian transforms for signal analysis and discrimination" run by Gustavo Rohde (Biomedical and Electrical Engineering) and Dejan Slepčev (Mathematical Sciences). The multidisciplinary team involved is working on modeling, analysis, and computational aspects of the approach.

    The position is planned to start in summer or fall of 2015. Appointment can be made through the Department of Mathematical Sciences or the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. The candidates should hold a recent Ph.D. in Mathematics, Engineering, Statistics, or a related area. Applicants should submit all materials electronically via www.mathjobs.org. This includes the AMS Standard Cover Sheet, a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, a research statement, and three letters of recommendation.

    Review of applications will begin on December 1, 2014. Applications will be accepted until the positions are filled.

  • PIRE Postdoctoral FellowshipsApplications are invited for one postdoctoral position at the Department of Mathematical Sciences in Carnegie Mellon University, partly funded by the NSF PIRE award Science at the Triple Point Between Mathematics, Mechanics and Materials Science possibly beginning September 2015.

    The scientific scope is directed to issues in applied mathematics and mechanics, including partial differential equations, calculus of variations, and scientific computation, which arise from the materials sciences. Four principal areas are identified: Pattern formation from energy minimization, challenges in atomistic to continuum modeling and computing, prediction of hysteresis, and pattern dynamics and evolution of material microstructure.

    The appointment is for two years with one semester spent at one or more of our international partner sites: International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA, Trieste, Italy), Max Planck Institute (Leipzig, Germany), University of Antwerp (Belgium), University of Bonn (Germany), University of Oxford (United Kingdom) and University of Warwick (United Kingdom).

    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.

  • Eugene P. Shelly Visiting Associate ProfessorThe Department of Mathematical Sciences at Carnegie Mellon University expects to appoint a Shelly Visiting Associate Professor for the 2014-2015 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 candidate, while simultaneously providing the candidate with an enriched research experience. The teaching load is a total of 3 one-semester courses during the academic year (2 during one semester and 1 during the other). Successful applicants will be expected to provide evidence of a strong teaching record. Appointment at the level of Visiting Assistant Professor or Visiting Professor may also be considered.

    Applicants should submit all materials electronically at www.mathjobs.org. This includes a curriculum vitae, list of publications, a statement describing teaching accomplishments, and at least three letters of recommendation. Recommenders who are unable to submit their letters electronically may mail them to the Shelly Appointments Committee, Department of Mathematical Sciences, Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA 15213.
