Tenure Track Faculty
The Courant Institute's Department of Mathematics anticipates having a small number of faculty positions in mathematics to begin in September 2018. Appointments may be made at either a junior or senior level. These positions will be in a range of areas in computational, applied and pure mathematics; three particular areas of interest are geometry, statistics and finance. Some may be multidisciplinary appointments that are joint with a science department from the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, such as biology and economics.
For all tenure track faculty positions at The Courant Institute, please go to mathjobs.org to submit an application online. Applications and supporting documents should be received by December 15th, 2017. The Courant Institute/New York University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
Professor of Data Science and Mathematics (Open Rank)
The Center for Data Science (CDS) and the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences seeks candidates for an open rank faculty position, anticipated to begin September 2018. Appointments may be made at either a junior or senior level. CDS focuses on the intersection between applied mathematics, data science, high-dimensional statistics, and several data driven application areas (including but not limited to political science, biology, physics, and medicine), while the Courant Institute houses one of the top applied mathematics departments in the world. CDS and the Math department both hosts vibrant interdisciplinary PhD programs and several faculty at NYU are already jointly appointed at both the Center for Data Science and Courant. The ideal candidate will leverage existing strengths of the Courant Institute in applied mathematics to carry out data science research. Research focus areas including statistics, optimization, and the mathematical foundations of inference and data-representation are all attractive. Exceptional candidates from other data-science relevant areas will be considered as well.
A PhD in Computer Science, Statistics, Mathematics, or a related quantitative field is required.
Please include a CV, short statement of your research and teaching interests, and a list of at least three references capable of providing a letter on your behalf.
Applications can be submitted through Interfolio.com via this link.
Applications and supporting documents received by January 15, 2018 will receive full consideration.
Professor of Atmosphere Ocean Science and Mathematics
Open rank (tenured/tenure track)
The Center for Atmosphere Ocean Science (CAOS), a unit of the Department of Mathematics within the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University, seeks candidates for an open rank faculty position, anticipated to begin in September 2018. Appointments may be made at either a junior or senior level. The CAOS group focuses on the intersection between applied mathematics and atmosphere ocean science (including the cryosphere), and hosts a distinct interdisciplinary PhD program within the Courant Institute. The ideal candidate will leverage existing strengths of the Courant Institute in applied mathematics to atmosphere-ocean-climate research. A research focus in multi-scale dynamics, high-performance simulation, or physical oceanography would be especially attractive, but exceptional candidates from any relevant area will be considered.
Please include a CV, a short statement of your research and teaching interests, and a list of at least three references who could provide a letter on your behalf upon request.
A PhD in Atmospheric Science, Oceanic Science, Mathematics, or a related field is required.
Applications can be submitted through Interfolio.com via direct link https://apply.interfolio.com/42829
Applications and supporting documents received by September 30th, 2017 will receive full consideration.
The Courant Institute/New York University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. Applications from women and underrepresented groups are particularly encouraged.
New York University is situated in Greenwich Village, one of the most vibrant and family friendly neighborhoods in the City of New York.
Clinical Faculty Positions
The NYU Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences seeks to fill Clinical Faculty positions in Mathematics at their Washington Square and Brooklyn campuses. One position is a teaching position and the other is a teaching + administrative responsibilities. Please see the application links below for each position. The primary responsibilities of the teaching focused position will be on teaching, developing, and supporting sections of entry level courses through multivariable calculus and linear algebra. Applicants must have a strong background in advanced mathematics, including a Ph.D., as well as sophistication about undergraduate teaching, learning, and curricular issues. Candidates should present evidence of outstanding classroom success, together with teacher-training, assessment, and organizational skills. The primary responsibilities for the teaching + administrative position are similar to the above and also include responsibilities related to leadership and administration.
For the Clinical faculty teaching position, please submit an application with supporting material electronically through Interfolio using this link.
For the Clinical faculty teaching + administrative position, please submit an application with supporting material electronically through Interfolio using this link.
For both positions, the supporting material for an application must contain the following:
- Three confidential letters of recommendation, including one that focuses on your teaching.
- Curriculum Vitae
- A cover letter discussing how this position relates to your overall career plans
- A teaching portfolio
- Secondary Requirement: 15 minute Video (optional)
Please note that the review of applications will begin immediately but should be completed by June 1, 2018. This Clinical Faculty position will not be a tenure track position. These are typically 3 year contracts that are potentially renewable. Rank and salary will be commensurate with experience.
