Open Positions

Tenure Track Assistant Professor in Applied Mathematics:

BRANDEIS UNIVERSITY Department of Mathematics invites applications for a tenure-track position in applied mathematics at the rank of assistant professor beginning fall 2018. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in mathematics or a related field, demonstrate potential for excellence in research, and display a commitment to teaching. An ideal candidate will be expected to help to build an applied mathematics program within the department, and to interact with other science faculty at Brandeis. Candidates from all areas of applied mathematics will be considered.

First consideration will be given to applications received by November 15.

A research-intensive liberal arts university, Brandeis fosters highly collaborative science both within and between departments and is currently conducting multiple searches that will strengthen cross-disciplinary studies across the sciences. The suburban campus in Waltham, MA is just 20 minutes from the bustling academic and biotechnology centers of Boston and Cambridge. Brandeis University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer that does not discriminate on the basis of race, ethnicity, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, national origin, age, marital status, disability or veteran status. Brandeis has a longstanding commitment to diversity rooted in values of inclusion and social justice. We welcome applications from candidates who share these values and who will foster their contribution to the University’s mission.

Applications should include an AMS cover sheet, a curriculum vitae, research and teaching statements, and four letters of recommendation, one of which addresses teaching effectiveness. Applications should be submitted through MathJobs.org. Position ID Number: Brandeis-TTAPAM [#10791].

Postdoctoral Position in Mathematical Neuroscience:

A postdoctoral position is available at Brandeis University to work on exciting problems in Mathematical Neuroscience (hosted by Jonathan Touboul). Techniques include probability, dynamical systems (with delays, jumps and/or multiple timescales) and statistical physics. Research topics include the analysis of the dynamics of neuron model or neural networks with heterogeneous elements, learning, memory and pathological brain states, as well as embryonic development of neural assemblies.

All projects will involve collaboration with experimental groups in Boston area, Paris and abroad. The position is up to 3 year term, contingent upon satisfactory progress, with competitive salary and benefit package. The suburban campus of Brandeis is just 20 minutes from the bustling academic and biotechnology centers of Boston and Cambridge; the postdoc will participate in the vibrant scholar life in Brandeis and the Boston area. The successful candidate will join the Mathematics Department at Brandeis University (http://www.brandeis.edu/departments/mathematics/) and have strong ties to the Neuroscience group (http://www.bio.brandeis.edu/). Opportunities to teach in the math department may be available.

Candidates should hold a Ph.D. in mathematics or related topic, including computational neuroscience, physics or engineering, by the starting date, and have an excellent track record of scholarship, have experience in dynamical systems and/or stochastic models, and be familiar with numerical simulations.

Applications should be submitted through MathJobs.org and should include an AMS cover sheet, a curriculum vitae, research statement, and three letters of recommendation. First consideration will be given to applications received by December 31, 2017. Position ID: Brandeis-NSPD [#11351].

Brandeis University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer; applications from under-represented groups are strongly encouraged.
