Postdoctoral Positions at the University of Memphis.

The Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Memphis (UofM) seeks to hire two applicants for two-year post-doctoral positions in Analysis (with the possibility of renewal for a third year-pending budgetary allocation) beginning Spring 2023. Preference will be given to one candidate in the field of ergodic theory or dynamical systems and one candidate in the field of applied mathematics with emphasis on partial differential equations.

Candidates must have received a Ph.D. within the last 3 years; demonstrate potential for excellence in research; and have a commitment to undergraduate and graduate teaching. The teaching load will be three semester courses per year. Salary is competitive and includes benefits.

For full consideration, applicants must complete an on-line application at https://workforum.memphis.edu/. Documents required include an American Mathematical Society (AMS) coversheet, curriculum vitae, teaching statement, research statement, and three letters of recommendations. At least one of the letters should address the teaching ability and experience of the applicant. Additionally, a brief statement giving the applicant’s motivation for coming to the University of Memphis should be included. It is suggested that the applicants familiarize themselves with our faculty at https://www.memphis.edu/msci/people/index.php so that they may be sure of their alignment.

Application process will commence immediately and may continue until the position is filled.

Questions should be addressed to the Chair of the Search Committee, Dr. Hongqiu Chen at hchen1@memphis.edu

Ralph Faudree Assistant Professorship

The Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Memphis invites applications for the Ralph Faudree Assistant Professorship in Mathematics. This is a non-tenure track (postdoctoral) position with a flexible target start date of either January 2023 or August 2023, running through July 2025 and extendable to an additional potential year upon satisfactory review. Candidates unable to start the position until August 2023 are encouraged to apply, though the ability to begin in January 2023 will be one of many factors taken into consideration. Duties include carrying out a collaborative or independent research program in an area of Combinatorics or Graph Theory, teaching a 2/1 course load each year (three courses per year), and mentoring undergraduate and graduate students. Health insurance benefits are included.

Dr. Ralph Faudree was a noted coauthor of Paul Erdős and built his career in mathematics at the University of Memphis, serving as provost for 11 years and helping transform the Department of Mathematical Sciences into the research-oriented department that it is today. The combinatorial traditions he helped build remain strong, with active members currently working in Graph Theory and Additive Combinatorics. All strong candidates in some area of combinatorics are encouraged to apply, particularly those with potential for collaboration or applications of Combinatorics in areas currently represented.

Candidates must have completed a PhD in Mathematics before the position start date and need to show strong research potential in an area of mathematics related to Combinatorics, as evidenced through publications, preprints and letters of recommendation. They must have adequate English skills and should be capable of teaching mathematics at all levels of instruction. Details are available at http://www.memphis.edu/msci/news/positions.php. To apply, complete an application at https://workforum.memphis.edu/postings/33189. Click on the faculty box to find the posting for the Ralph Faudree Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematical Sciences. Applicants must upload a cover letter, research and teaching statements, curriculum vitae, and contact information for three letters of recommendation that will be directly uploaded. To receive full consideration, completed applications should be received by October 21, 2022, but later applications will continue to be considered until the review process is finished.
