Faculty Position in Differential Equations
September 13, 2022
The Virginia Tech Department of Mathematics anticipates a tenure-track opening in the area of Differential Equations with a start date of August 10, 2023, at our Blacksburg, VA, campus.
The successful candidate will have a strong background in the theory or applications of deterministic or stochastic ordinary or partial differential equations, including, but not limited to, regularity theory, well-posedness analysis, stability analysis, controllability analysis, dynamical properties of differential equations, parameter estimation, uncertainty quantification, mathematical modeling using deterministic or stochastic ordinary or partial differential equations, or applications of deterministic or stochastic ordinary or partial differential equations to fluid mechanics or dynamics, differential geometry, optimal control, calculus of variations, or the physical or life sciences.
The successful candidate will have the opportunity to engage in interdisciplinary research, curriculum development, and/or outreach initiatives with other members of the Virginia Tech faculty.
Appointment as an Assistant Professor of Mathematics is anticipated, but exceptional senior candidates will be considered for positions of Associate Professor of Mathematics or Professor of Mathematics.
Job requirements include a Ph.D. in mathematics or a related field at the time of appointment and an active research program, or, for new Ph.D.’s, strong promise for developing an active research program. The successful candidate will be expected to establish a distinguished research program and to provide effective instruction and advising to a diverse population of undergraduate and graduate students.
Additional responsibilities include: continuing development of professional capabilities and scholarly activities, including travel to attend conferences and meetings; curriculum development; participation in department, college, and university governance; and professional service. Position requires occasional travel to attend conferences and meetings.
