The Coding Theory, Cryptography, and Number Theory group at Clemson University has two RTG postdoctoral positions in any one of the focus areas of the group: coding theory, cryptography or number theory. To be eligible applicants must be US citizens or permanent residents and no more than two years past completion of the doctoral degree. The positions are renewable annually to a maximum of three years, and they also include some summer support. Both positions come with a research allowance and carry a two course per year teaching load. Along with teaching duties, RTG postdocs will also be expected to participate in some of the other activities associated to the grant that can be found on the grant webpage (http://www.math.clemson.edu/ccnt).

The Department includes the areas of algebra and discrete mathematics, computational mathematics, operations research, applied statistics, probability and mathematical statistics, and pure and applied analysis. The department offers the full range of Baccalaureate, Master’s, and Doctoral degrees. For further information regarding the department and its programs, please visit the web site http://www.math.clemson.edu.

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 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.

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, and mathematical sciences as it mobilizes curiosity-driven faculty and students through innovative academic programs and research, including transdisciplinary research at the intersection of many fields.


Applicants must be US citizens or permanent residents and no more than two years past completion of the doctoral degree with an emphasis on any one of the following research areas: coding theory, cryptography or number theory.

Application Instructions:

Applications should include an AMS cover sheet, cover letter, curriculum vitae, research statement, teaching statement, and four letters of reference at least one of which addresses the applicant’s teaching. The cover letter should indicate how the applicant's work relates to the research areas of the grant. Applications must be completed through the website http://www.mathjobs.org, and will be accepted until the positions have been filled. Completed applications for the postdoctoral position received before November 15 will receive full consideration. The earliest starting date for the positions is January 1, 2019.
