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 Atmosphere Ocean Science and Mathematics

Open rank (tenured/tenure track)

The Center for Atmosphere Ocean Science (CAOS), a unit of the Department of Mathematics within the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University, seeks candidates for an open rank faculty position, anticipated to begin in September 2018. Appointments may be made at either a junior or senior level. The CAOS group focuses on the intersection between applied mathematics and atmosphere ocean science (including the cryosphere), and hosts a distinct interdisciplinary PhD program within the Courant Institute. The ideal candidate will leverage existing strengths of the Courant Institute in applied mathematics to atmosphere-ocean-climate research. A research focus in multi-scale dynamics, high-performance simulation, or physical oceanography would be especially attractive, but exceptional candidates from any relevant area will be considered.

Please include a CV, a short statement of your research and teaching interests, and a list of at least three references who could provide a letter on your behalf upon request.

A PhD in Atmospheric Science, Oceanic Science, Mathematics, or a related field is required.

Applications can be submitted through Interfolio.com via direct link https://apply.interfolio.com/42829

Applications and supporting documents received by September 30th, 2017 will receive full consideration.

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.
