 CNA Postdoctoral PositionsThe Center for Nonlinear Analysis anticipates making Postdoctoral
appointments possibly beginning September 2015 in applied analysis in the general areas of nonlinear partial differential equations, calculus of variations, and their applications. These will be threeyear joint appointments by the Center and the Department of Mathematical Sciences. Recipients will teach at most two courses per year. 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.
Recommenders who are unable to submit their letters electronically may
mail them to the committee.
Review of applications will begin on September 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. Recommenders who are unable to submit their letters electronically may mail them to the committee.
Review of applications will begin on September 1, 2014. Applications
will be accepted until the positions are filled. Priority will be given to U.S. citizens and permanent residents.

Action/Equal Opportunity Employer and encourages applications from
women and minorities.
 Postdoctoral Position in Mathematical Finance The Department of Mathematical Sciences desires to make a two or threeyear postdoctoral appointment in mathematical finance beginning September 2014. 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: Mathematical Finance PostDoc, Department of Mathematical Sciences, Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA 15213.

 Eugene P. Shelly Visiting Associate ProfessorThe Department of Mathematical Sciences at Carnegie Mellon University expects to appoint a Shelly Visiting Associate Professor for the 20142015 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 onesemester 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.
Review of applications will begin on January 1, 2014 and continue until the position is filled.
