Employment


Tenure Track Faculty

The Courant Institute's Department of Mathematics anticipates having a small number of faculty positions in mathematics to begin in September 2018. Appointments may be made at either a junior or senior level. These positions will be in a range of areas in computational, applied and pure mathematics; three particular areas of interest are geometry, statistics and finance. Some may be multidisciplinary appointments that are joint with a science department from the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, such as biology and economics.

For all tenure track faculty positions at The Courant Institute, please go to mathjobs.org to submit an application online. Applications and supporting documents should be received by December 15th, 2017. The Courant Institute/New York University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.

Professor of Data Science and Mathematics

Open rank (tenured/tenure track)

The Center for Data Science (CDS) and the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at NYU seek candidates for an open rank joint faculty position, anticipated to begin September 2019. Appointments may be made at either a junior or senior level. CDS is the focal point for NYU's university-wide initiative in data science and statistics, established 5 years ago, and one of the country's leading data science research and training facilities. CDS is a vibrant space with about 15 jointly appointed faculty (growing to over 20 in the next two years) and about 10 associated faculty across computer science, mathematics, engineering, neuro science, linguistics, politics, psychology, physics, biology and business; a list of affiliate faculty spanning a wide range of NYU's schools and departments, a highly successful Masters program and one of the first Data Science PhD programs. CDS's research focuses on tools and methods at the intersection between applied mathematics, data science, high-dimensional statistics, machine learning, optimization, and several data driven application areas. The Courant Institute houses one of the top applied mathematics departments in the world. CDS and the Math department both host vibrant interdisciplinary PhD programs and several faculty at NYU are already jointly appointed at both the Center for Data Science and Courant. We seek a strong candidate who will leverage existing strengths of the Courant Institute in applied mathematics to carry out data science research. We are particularly focused on expanding in the area of Applied and Theoretical Statistics as well as interdisciplinary areas where innovative and principled use of statistics is of vital importance. Exceptional candidates from other data-science relevant areas, such as optimization and the mathematical foundations of inference and data-representation will be considered as well.

Please include a CV, a short statement of your research and teaching interests, and a list of at least three references capable of providing a letter on your behalf.

A PhD in Statistics, Computer Science, Mathematics, or a related quantitative field is required.

Applications and supporting documents received by December 15th, 2018 will receive full consideration. Applications are to be submitted through Interfolio via this link.

The Courant Institute/New York University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. Applications from women and underrepresented groups are particularly encouraged.

New York University is situated in Greenwich Village, one of the most vibrant and family friendly neighborhoods in the City of New York.
