The Department of Mathematics at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the assistant professor level beginning in September 2018. We are seeking individuals with research interests complementary to data science, including (but not limited to) numerical linear algebra, statistics, applied and computational mathematics, and optimization.

The ideal applicant will have significant research experience, help develop and support our Data Science programs, and collaborate with other members of the department. Faculty members are expected to develop an internationally recognized and externally-funded research program, develop and teach graduate and undergraduate courses, advise and mentor graduate and undergraduate students, and participate in service activities.

The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth is a Doctoral Research University conveniently located in the beautiful south coast of Massachusetts, with many beaches nearby and two capital cities (and two major airports) within easy driving distance. The mathematics department offers several undergraduate degrees, including a Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science in Mathematics, a Bachelor of Science in Computational and Applied Mathematics, and (jointly with the Computer Science department) a Bachelor of Science in Data Science. The department also offers a M.S. degree in Data Science jointly with the Computer Science department, and a Ph.D. degree in Computational Science and Engineering under the umbrella of the Engineering and Applied Science (EAS) program. The department is the centerpiece of the Center for Scientific Computing and Visualization Research (CSCVR) that promotes scientific computing, data science, and high performance computing. A new hire is expected to fit well into our interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research and educational environment.

Minimum qualifications include a doctoral degree in mathematics or a related field at the time of appointment and evidence of strong potential for teaching excellence and scholarly research. Preferred qualifications include significant postdoctoral experience, evidence of strong potential for external funding, and a good fit with the research interests of the department.
