Stanford University — Math+X Tenure / Tenure-Track Faculty, Department of Mathematics

Stanford University invites applications for a tenure-track or tenured position made possible in part by a gift from the Simons Foundation under the Math+X program, whose goal is to increase the interaction between mathematics and other disciplines in science and engineering.

We are seeking exceptional applicants who will develop a program of research and innovative new courses at the frontier of areas such as computational mathematics/statistics, imaging science, optimization or any other applicable field. This is a broad-area search. We will place higher priority on the impact, originality, and promise of the candidate’s work than on the particular sub-area of specialization. Evidence of the ability to pursue a program of innovative research and a strong commitment to graduate and undergraduate teaching are required. The successful candidate will teach courses at the graduate and undergraduate levels and build and lead a team of graduate students in PhD research.

Applicants will be considered for a joint appointment between either the Department of Mathematics or the Department of Statistics and another department of science or engineering, or the Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering. Applicants may also be considered for a full appointment in the Departments of Mathematics or Statistics.

Applicants should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, list of publications, and a brief statement of research and teaching interests. Also, the candidate should arrange to have at least three letters of recommendation (junior candidates only); or names and addresses of three references (senior candidates only). Please apply and submit these materials through; please check “Math+X” as a job title. For additional information you may email with Math+X in the subject. Full consideration will be given to applications received before January 15, 2019. Applications received after this date will be accepted until the position is filled.

Stanford University is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty. It welcomes nominations of, and applications from, women, members of minority groups, protected veterans, and individuals with disabilities, as well as others who would bring additional dimensions to the university’s research, teaching and clinical missions.
