The Department of Mathematics at the University of Denver invites applications for two faculty positions: a tenure-track Assistant Professor and a postdoctoral Visiting Assistant Professor, both to begin in the fall of 2017. The successful tenure-track candidate will teach courses at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, serve as a mentor to Ph.D students and postdoctoral scholars, develop and maintain a high quality research program, and participate in service to the Department and the University. The postdoctoral position is renewable annually up to a maximum of three years, and the successful candidate will teach undergraduate courses and conduct high quality research.
Candidates must have a Ph.D. in mathematics by September 1, 2017 and show excellence in both research and teaching. We seek outstanding scholars in any area of mathematics, but we are especially interested in candidates whose work overlaps with the research interests of the current faculty and who have demonstrated experience or commitment to engage effectively with historically underrepresented communities. Active areas of research include functional analysis, operator theory, noncommutative geometry, combinatorics, graph theory, probability, statistical physics, algebraic logic, set theory, nonassociative algebra, representation theory, topological dynamics, and ergodic theory.
Review of applications for the tenure-track position will begin on December 1, and for the postdoctoral position on January 1, 2017, and will continue until both positions are filled. Applicants should apply electronically to www.mathjobs.org, and should submit an AMS cover sheet, a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, a teaching statement and a research statement. A minimum of four letters of recommendation, with three concerning research and one teaching, should be submitted on behalf of the applicant. In addition, applicants should complete a brief online application at https://dujobs.silkroad.com.
The University of Denver is strongly committed to enhancing the diversity of its faculty and staff, and encourages applications from women, racial and ethnic minorities, members of the LGBT community, individuals with disabilities, and veterans. Applicants who have experience working with a diverse range of students or who can otherwise contribute to a climate of inclusivity are strongly encouraged to identify their experiences in their cover letter.
