Positions Available in Mathematical Sciences
Assistant Professor of Applied and Computational Math
The Department of Mathematical Sciences, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM), invites applications to fill one faculty position at the Assistant Professor level in Mathematical Sciences. Starting date is August 2013.
The department is seeking an outstanding researcher in applied and computational mathematics with interdisciplinary focus. Candidates must have, or expect to complete by August 2013, a PhD or equivalent in mathematics or applied mathematics with expertise in applied and computational mathematics. Preferred qualifications are: evidence of a strong research record (publications, funding, post-doc experience); a commitment to teaching excellence, and primary expertise related to: numerical partial differential equations or dynamical systems, high performance scientific computing, network analysis and computation, or multiscale modeling and analysis; evidence of past interdisciplinary research collaborations or the potential for such in fields outside of the mathematical sciences.
The candidate is expected to develop significant cooperation with researchers in other fields of application, especially outside the Department of Mathematical Sciences, in fields such as biology, bio-engineering, biochemistry, freshwater sciences, medicine, and public health. Responsibilities include development of a vigorous, collaborative research program, teaching two courses per semester, and taking active roles in the undergraduate, Master’s and Doctoral programs. A competitive compensation, benefits, and research start-up package is provided.
The Mathematical Sciences Department has a faculty of 35, including pure mathematicians, applied & computational mathematicians, statisticians, and atmospheric scientists. We are engaged in collaborations with many other departments in the natural sciences and engineering, as well as the Schools of Freshwater Science and Public Health, and the Medical College of Wisconsin. More information can be found by visiting our web page at http://www.math.uwm.edu/.
Applications must be completed online at http://jobs.uwm.edu/postings/11058, where applicants will upload a CV, cover letter, and teaching and research statements. Please include links to relevant web pages and publications in your cover letter or CV. In addition, applicants must arrange to have three or more letters of recommendation (at least one should address the candidate's teaching abilities) submitted to MathJobs.org.
Review of applications will start by January 14, 2013 and will continue until the position is filled. Applications received after January 14, 2013 may not be reviewed. UW-Milwaukee is an AA/EEO employer.
Assistant/Associate Professor in Actuarial Science
The Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee invites applications to fill one tenure-track/tenured faculty position in Actuarial Science at the rank of Assistant/Associate Professor. The appointment start date is August 19, 2013.
The department is seeking an outstanding candidate with a PhD in actuarial science, statistics, mathematics or a related area, with research expertise in actuarial science. Candidates for this position must have or be close to achieving a professional designation of the Society of Actuaries (SOA) or the Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS). Preference will be given to candidates with teaching experience, a proven research record, and evidence of funding success. Responsibilities include teaching two courses per semester, taking active roles in the undergraduate, Masters and PhD programs, and pursuing external partnerships/funding. A competitive compensation and research start-up package will be provided and depend upon qualifications and experience.
To apply for this position, please visit http://jobs.uwm.edu/postings/10499 and upload: (a) cover letter, (b) curriculum vitae, (c) SOA/CAS transcript, (d) research plan, (e) teaching statement, and (f) names and contact information of three references.
Review of applications will start December 31, 2012, and continue until the position is filled. Applications received after this date may not receive full consideration.
The actuarial program of the department has a long history of preparing undergraduates for the actuarial profession. In recent years interest has grown substantially. We currently have 50+ undergraduate majors with 8-10 graduating every year, and these numbers continue to grow. This year we also have started a masters in mathematics program with a concentration in actuarial science. In addition, a few doctoral students work on actuarial research problems in their theses. We currently have two full-time and one part-time faculty members supporting the program. For more information, please visit http://www.uwm.edu/Dept/Math/Actuarial/.
