Tenure-track Position in Mathematical Data Science

The Department of Mathematics at Florida State University invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in mathematical data science, broadly construed, beginning in August 2023. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in mathematics or a related discipline and postdoctoral experience in applied mathematics. The ideal candidate will have experience working in research areas that complement the research interests of the data science group in the Mathematics Department. These include theory and applications of machine learning, deep learning approaches to partial differential equations, optimization, geometrical and topological data analysis, uncertainty quantification and stochastic computing.

The Mathematics Department offers BS, MS, and PhD degrees in applied and computational mathematics, as well as degrees in several other areas of mathematics. Currently, there are 16 applied and computational mathematics faculty members (core and affiliated) with 39 graduate students. Many faculty members and students in the department’s other core areas of pure mathematics, biomathematics, and financial mathematics are interested in data science and our department encourages cross-disciplinary collaborations.

Florida State University is one of two flagship research universities in the State University System of Florida, and is ranked number 18 among all public universities in the country by U.S. News and World Report. The university enrolls over 40,000 students in the main campus of Tallahassee. Tallahassee is located in north Florida and has a population of roughly 190,000. It is adjacent to the Apalachicola National Forest and about twenty-five miles from the Gulf of Mexico, with easy access to pristine beaches and other natural habitats. Tallahassee has a warm climate, with an annual average high temperature of 80 degrees Fahrenheit and an annual average low temperature of 56 degrees Fahrenheit.

Applications should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, research and teaching statements, and four letters of recommendation (at least one of the letters should address the candidate's teaching capability). Applications should be submitted electronically through https://www.mathjobs.org/jobs/list/20747 and, in addition, through the FSU Jobs website https://jobs.fsu.edu (Job opening ID 53124).

The deadline to apply for this position is November 1st, 2022. Screening of applications will begin on November 2nd. The Department anticipates filling this position by August 2023.
