Employment


Postdoctoral Researcher in Climate/Ocean Physics and Machine Learning in the Mathematics department at NYU Courant

Seeking Expression of Interest from postdoctoral researchers interested in Climate/Ocean Physics and Machine Learning in the Mathematics department at NYU Courant.

This position is for postdoctoral researchers and does not include teaching responsibilities.

NYU Courant's Center for Atmosphere Ocean Science is seeking outstanding researchers with strong physical insight and analytical ability to join the research group of Prof. Laure Zanna. Some of our recent work includes: ocean dynamics and climate change, air-sea interactions, predictability in mid-latitudes and stochastic parameterizations of turbulent ocean processes. We are primarily interested in researchers who can incorporate ideas and tools from machine learning to solve fundamental problems in ocean/climate dynamics and modeling.

The possible project topics include: assessing the predictability of climate phenomena, improving subgrid-scale parameterizations, the inference of climate variables/processes from sparse data (e.g. paleoproxy or satellite data), uncertainty quantification to ensemble simulations. The earliest that this position will begin is September 2019. These positions are full time appointments initially for one year and renewable conditional on satisfactory performance and funding.

The Center for Atmosphere Ocean Science is a unit of the department of Mathematics, within the NYU Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences. NYU Courant is a highly respected institute for cutting-edge research and advanced training in applied mathematics and computer science. NYU Courant has strong links with the NYU Center for Data Science (CDS), home for the NYU Moore-Sloan Data Science Environment. NYU Courant is in the very heart of the world's leading artistic and financial center in downtown Manhattan.

The review of applications will start July 1, 2019 and will continue until the positions are filled.

Qualifications

Completion of Ph.D. in physical, mathematical, computational science or related disciplines by the start date.

Clinical Faculty Positions

The NYU Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences seeks to fill Clinical Faculty positions in mathematics at its Washington Square and Brooklyn campuses.

The primary responsibilities will be:

  • teaching and coordinating entry level courses through multivariable calculus and linear algebra
  • training and evaluating new instructors and teaching assistants
  • curriculum development and assessment
  • other responsibilities related to the undergraduate program

Applicants must have a strong background in advanced mathematics, including a Ph.D in math or a math-related field, as well as experience in and knowledge about undergraduate teaching, learning, and curricular issues.

The supporting material for an application must contain the following:

  • Three confidential letters of recommendation, including one that focuses on your teaching
  • Curriculum Vitae
  • A cover letter discussing how this position relates to your overall career plans
  • A teaching portfolio
  • Secondary Requirement: 15 minute video (optional)

Please note that the review of applications will begin immediately but should be completed by June 21, 2019. This Clinical Faculty position will not be a tenure track position. These are typically 3 year contracts that are potentially renewable. Rank and salary will be commensurate with experience. Please submit applications via Interfolio using this link.
