Post Doctoral Fellow - Numerical Methods for Finite Element DiscretizationLocation:
Clemson UniversityOpen Date:
Mar 21, 2022Description:
The School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences at Clemson University is inviting applications for one postdoctoral position. This non-tenure-track position has a 9-month contract, with potential renewal annually to a max of three years and includes some summer support. The anticipated starting date is August 2022. Excellence in research and teaching for this position is expected.
The successful candidate will work under the direction of Assoc. Prof. Timo Heister in the area of numerical methods for finite element discretizations. This position is partly funded by NSF to work on specific projects. For this, expertise in open source software development, high-performance computing, linear solvers (multigrid), C plus plus, CFD, and visualization is desired and should be stressed in the cover letter. Knowledge of the deal.II library (dealii.org) and/or ASPECT (aspect.geodynamics.org) are a bonus.
In addition to the research as described above, the successful candidate will teach one course per year. There is also the option to earn additional salary in the summer for either research or teaching a summer course contingent on availability of funds and teaching needs of the school.
The school contains two divisions: Mathematics and Statistics and Operations Research, and includes the areas of algebra and discrete mathematics, data science, comp. math., OR, probability and mathematical statistics, and pure and applied analysis. The school offers the full range of Baccalaureate, Master’s, and Doctoral degrees.

Clemson University has the highest Carnegie research designation (Very High, R1), and 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 Sci, Chemistry, Genetics and Biochem, Mathematical Sciences, and Physics & Astronomy to solve tomorrow’s greatest challenges. 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 Math and Stat Sciences are committed to building a community of inclusive excellence, where faculty scholars are dedicated to working and teaching in a multi-cultural environment (http://www.clemson.edu/inclusion/) 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 in Mathematical Sciences. 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 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.
Candidates should have a Ph.D. in mathematics or a related field by the time of appointment.Application Instructions:
Applications should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, research statement, teaching statement, and three letters of reference with one letter addressing teaching experience.
