Postdoctoral Fellowship |
The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Missouri University of Science and Technology invites applications for a postdoctoral position starting in August 2022. This position is for one year, renewable once for a maximum of two years, and is not a tenure-track position. Salary and benefits are competitive.
Candidates should have a doctoral degree in mathematics or statistics, or in a related field, by August 2022. Candidates are expected to demonstrate exceptional research promise and a strong teaching record. Preference will be given to those applicants whose research focus on computational and data-enabled sciences in mathematics and statistics, such as machine learning, uncertainty quantification, data-enabled modeling, data assimilation, statistics, data science, etc. The desired qualifications include having a documented research record in an area that matches the research interests of a current faculty member or group of faculty members (see http://math.mst.edu/research/currentresearch/ ). In their cover letter, applicants should identify a faculty member or research group of interest for collaboration, and explain how their research can both benefit from, and enhance, our research endeavors.
Applicants should submit their materials online at https://hr.mst.edu/careers/ . A complete application includes
1) A cover letter of application;
2) Current curriculum vitae that includes the applicant’s record of research and teaching (including a summary of teaching evaluations);
3) A research statement;
4) At least one reference letter for research and one reference letter for teaching.
Review of applications will begin immediately. For full consideration, applications should be received by March 18, 2022.
The Department of Mathematics and Statistics consists of 15 tenured and tenure-track faculty and 5 ranked non-tenure-track faculty. The research interests of the faculty range over many areas, including statistics, computational and applied mathematics, analysis and differential equations, and others. The department plays an important role on the engineering-focused campus of Missouri S&T, both in terms of interdisciplinary interactions with other departments and in the training of a large number of undergraduate students in fundamental areas such as calculus, differential equations, linear algebra, and statistics. The department has B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. programs, with about 40 graduate students (the majority being doctoral students) and nearly 100 undergraduate majors. The Ph.D. program has three emphasis areas: mathematics, computational and applied mathematics, and statistics. Additional details about the department can be found at the department website: http://math.mst.edu/ .
Missouri University of Science and Technology is one of the nation’s leading technological research universities. One of four campuses of the University of Missouri System, Missouri S&T is a U.S. News & World Report top-100 public national university. With its reputation as one of the leading engineering campuses in the country and its emphasis on applied science, Missouri S&T attracts high-quality students from across the nation. Home to many outstanding researchers in engineering and science and 10 interdisciplinary research centers and six research consortia, the University provides an abundance of opportunities for collaborative research. Missouri S&T has recently established the Kummer Institute and the Kummer College of Entrepreneurship, Innovation, and Economic Development as a result of a $300 million gift from Fred and June Kummer, longtime benefactors of the university. This transformative gift will create abundant opportunities to expand degree offerings, establish additional interdisciplinary research centers, foster expansion of academic-industry partnerships, and create economic growth for the region. The Department of Mathematics and Statistics, led by the Gary Havener Endowed Department Chair, will be a significant partner in Kummer-related research and curricular initiatives. Located about 100 miles southwest of St. Louis in the multicultural community of Rolla, Missouri, S&T is an accessible, safe, and friendly campus surrounded by Ozarks scenery.
