Open Positions

The Department is very pleased to announce searches for three tenure-track Assistant Professors, four Lecturers, a Visiting Assistant Professor, and a Postdoctoral Associate to be filled in 2019.

Assistant Professor

The Assistant Professor positions are open to all areas in Mathematics and begin in August 2019. These positions are part of an exciting university wide initiative to further our status as one of the very best research universities in the nation. Last year the university hired approximately 250 new faculty and will add a similar number this year to enhance teaching and research. The successful candidate will join a vibrant research department with representation across a full range of pure and applied mathematics.​


The Lecturer positions are part of an initiative to modernize and improve lower-division instruction. These non-tenure-track renewable positions can begin as early as January, 2019. Candidates must have substantial interest in STEM education reform; in particular; the department seeks to attract individuals with experience in active learning environments such as flipped classrooms. Lecturers play a vital role in our dynamic instructional enterprise by bringing subject expertise and commitment to excellence in teaching to bear in educating our exceptional undergraduates.

Postdoctoral Associate

The Postdoctoral Associate position is in the area of applied topology with a particular interest in topological data analysis, and begins on August 16, 2019, with an earlier start date possible. The position is funded by the Southeast Center for Mathematics and Biology (SCMB). The postdoc is expected to be at Georgia Tech over the summer to participate in project related activities, including a significant time (8-10 weeks) in residence with the Seed Project experimental research group during the first summer of the project.

Visiting Assistant Professor

The Visiting Assistant Professor position begins on August 16, 2019. The area of specialization is open, but the person filling this position will be responsible for managing the department’s online homework system, Xronos, which is built on the open source Ximera project. This requires substantial knowledge of programming in javascript, LaTeX, and HTML5, along with database management and LTI integration with learning management systems. Participation in the department’s research activities is expected. A Ph.D. in the mathematical sciences or the equivalent is required. Candidates with strong promise in research and teaching are encouraged to apply.
