Cleveland State University
Assistant Professor in Applied and Computational Mathematics
Department of Mathematics and Statistics
Position Description: The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Cleveland State University has an opening for a tenure-track Assistant Professor in Applied and Computational Mathematics. CSU is committed to academic excellence and diversity within the faculty, staff, and student body. CSU is striving to be a nationally recognized and student-focused public research institution that provides accessible, affordable, and Engaged Learning opportunities for all. The Department of Mathematics and Statistics offers B.S., B.A., and M.S. degrees in Mathematics, and an M.S. in Mathematics with a Specialization in Applied Statistics. The University, College of Sciences and Health Professions, and Department seek to attract an active, culturally, and academically diverse faculty of the highest caliber. The successful applicant is expected to carry out an active program of research in applied and computational mathematics. The research is expected to be computationally intensive and interdisciplinary, but the area of research extends to contemporary areas of applied mathematics such as computational geometry or topological data analysis, as well as more traditional areas of applied mathematics such as PDEs. The successful applicant is also expected to seek external funding, to teach undergraduate and graduate courses to our students in mathematics, and to participate in the usual department and university service. The starting date of the appointment is August 22, 2022.
Minimum Qualifications: A Ph.D. earned by July 1, 2022 in mathematics or applied mathematics; an active research program in applied and computational mathematics; strong communication skills.
Preferred Qualifications: A strong research program in applied and computational mathematics, with experience in solving data driven problems; research that complements or overlaps with the Department’s existing areas of research strength; a demonstrated commitment to excellence in teaching and mentoring students; experience with innovative methods of instruction and assessment; a research agenda open to across-campus and off-campus collaborations; evidence of a substantial contribution to a successful academic event, initiative, or ongoing activity; the ability to contribute through research/scholarship, teaching, and/or service to the diversity, cultural sensitivity, and excellence of the academic community. Successful candidates should be able to include undergraduate students in research while helping them prepare for graduate study, internships, or their future careers.
Application Requirements: A complete application should consist of the following materials:
• cover letter;
• curriculum vitae;
• statement on research;
• statement on teaching;
• statement on diversity (A statement explaining your experience serving diverse students and how you will make a positive contribution to CSU’s diverse community or, for applicants who have not yet had the opportunity for such experience, noting how your work will contribute to CSU’s commitment to diversity and mission as an urban serving university. Upload under “Diversity Statement.”);
• Contact details of three or more references, who will be asked to submit letters of recommendation. At least one reference should address teaching effectiveness, and at least two should address research.
Submit materials electronically at https://hrjobs.csuohio.edu/postings/15381. Review of complete applications will begin on January 20, 2022, and will continue until the position is filled.
Salary Range: Commensurate with experience and qualifications. This hiring is contingent on maintaining the existing levels of funding from the State of Ohio.
