Open Positions

The Department of Mathematics at the University of Florida is pleased to invite applications for two (2) full-time, nine-month, tenure-track faculty positions at the assistant professor level beginning August 16, 2020. This search is limited to the area of data science, broadly construed. This includes, but is not limited to, computational mathematics, topological data analysis, numerical analysis, and related fields with a strong connection to the theory and application of mathematics to the study of data.

These positions are part of an exciting university-wide initiative to further its status as one of the very best research universities in the nation. The university is in the process of adding 500 new faculty to enhance teaching and research. The successful candidates will join a vibrant research department with representation across a full range of pure and applied mathematics. Moreover, the department plans to launch an undergraduate data science major in fall 2020 in collaboration with the Department of Statistics.

Please apply both at MathJobs and Interfolio
