The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at San José State University invites applications for two tenure-track faculty positions in Applied Mathematics at the rank of Assistant Professor. Candidates must have a doctoral degree in the mathematical sciences or a closely related field by time of the appointment. We seek applicants with demonstrated evidence of excellence in teaching at the university level, outstanding research potential, and a commitment to department service. A successful candidate will have expertise in an area of applied mathematics, such as differential equations, numerical methods, applied discrete math, optimization, or cryptography.

Ability to teach a graduate optimization course is desirable. Applicants should demonstrate awareness of and sensitivity to educational goals of a multicultural population as might have been gained in cross-cultural study, training, teaching and other comparable experience.

In addition to teaching a variety of undergraduate and graduate courses in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, the faculty member is expected to supervise graduate students, to maintain a program of scholarly activity, to work on curriculum development, and to be involved in departmental governance. Faculty in applied mathematics are also expected to supervise student teams working on industry-sponsored research projects run by the department's Center for Applied Mathematics, Computation and Statistics (CAMCOS). The candidate must address the needs of a student population of great diversity – in age, cultural background, ethnicity, primary language and academic preparation – through inclusive course materials, teaching strategies and advisement.
