Assistant Professor: Computational Mathematics
The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at SDSU has an open position in Computational Mathematics at the assistant professor level. Applicants must hold (i) a PhD in Applied or Computational Mathematics or a closely related field and (ii) a demonstrated strong record of independent research. The successful candidate is expected to perform research in the development and implementation of computational and applied mathematics methods to real-life applications. Research experience in multiscale algorithms developed at various scales (i.e. continuum, mesoscale, microscale, etc.) would be advantageous. The successful candidate will work closely with the members of the Nonlinear Dynamical Systems (NLDS) Group (http://nlds.sdsu.edu), researchers affiliated with the Computational Science Research Center (CSRC; http://www.csrc.sdsu.edu/), and external collaborators in applications to compelling problems in science and engineering. We are looking at individuals with strong combination of applied mathematics and computing skills to work at the interface of realistic and state-of-the-art science and engineering problems.
