Clemson University has recently completed its Clemson Forward plan with strategic focus on advancing our doctoral programs and strengthening our research and scholarly impact while still preserving the outstanding signature undergraduate experience that is at the heart of Clemson. The Clemson Forward plan directed the building of a new world-class College of Science that harnesses the disciplines of Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Genetics and Biochemistry, Mathematical and Statistical Sciences, and Physics & Astronomy to solve tomorrow’s greatest challenges. Clemson has achieved the highest Carnegie research designation (Very High, R1). Clemson Forward has at its core the mission of inclusive excellence in our students and faculty that will help Clemson ascend to a top 20 public university and a model for the 21st Century land grant university.

Moreover, the University, the College of Science, and the School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences are committed to building a community of inclusive excellence, where faculty scholars are dedicated to working and teaching in a multi-cultural environment ( . We are particularly interested in receiving applications from women, underrepresented minorities, and from those who have experience and/or a commitment toward mentoring students from diverse backgrounds, as well as those who have demonstrated a commitment to understanding the challenges in promoting diversity and inclusion particularly in probability/statistics or computational mathematics. In addition, the College is supportive of the needs of dual career couples.

South Carolina’s highest-ranked national university is located at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains and surrounded by Lake Hartwell and the Clemson Experimental Forest. A top-25 public university with a reputation for excellence, Clemson University provides a hands-on education — in the lab, in the classroom and in the field. Academic programs lay the groundwork for innovative research, and real-world experiences carry forward to rewarding careers. This strikingly beautiful campus enjoys a temperate and pleasant climate. We welcome applications and nominations of outstanding scholar-educators to come join the Clemson Family.

The College of Science advances the life, physical, mathematical and statistical sciences as it mobilizes curiosity-driven faculty and students through innovative academic programs and research, including transdisciplinary research at the intersection of many fields.


An earned doctorate or equivalent is required for these tenure track positions. For the computational mathematics position, postdoc experience is expected.

Application Instructions:

Applicants should indicate their research specialties and interests in their cover letter. Vita, statements on teaching, research and a one-page statement describing the candidate’s experience mentoring diverse individuals and/or how the candidate plans to contribute to the inclusive excellence of the School, and three reference letters should be electronically filed at . Review of applications will begin on December 15, 2018 and will continue until the positions are filled. Applications received by December 31, 2018 will receive full consideration.
