The Computing and Mathematical Sciences (CMS) Department at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in the fundamental mathematics and theory that underpins application domains within the CMS Department, within the Engineering and Applied Sciences (EAS) Division, or within the Institute as a whole. Areas of interest include (but are not limited to) algorithms, data assimilation and inverse problems, dynamical systems and control, geometry, machine learning, mathematics of data science, networks and graphs, numerical linear algebra, optimization, partial differential equations, probability, scientific computing, statistics, stochastic modeling, and uncertainty quantification.
CMS is a unique environment where research in applied and computational mathematics, computer science, and control and dynamical systems is conducted in a collegial atmosphere; application focii include distributed systems, economics, graphics, neuroscience, quantum computing, and robotics and autonomous systems. The CMS Department is part of the broader EAS Division comprising researchers working in, and at intersections between, the fields of aerospace, civil, electrical, mechanical, and medical engineering, as well as in environmental science and engineering, and in materials science and applied physics. The Institute as a whole represents the full range of research in biology, chemistry, engineering, physics, and the social sciences.
A commitment to world-class research, as well as high-quality teaching and mentoring, is expected. The initial appointment at the assistant professor level is for four years, and is contingent upon the completion of a Ph.D. degree in applied mathematics, computer science, statistics or in a related field in engineering or the sciences.
Applications will be reviewed beginning November 7, 2018, and applicants are encouraged to have all their application materials, including letters of recommendation, on file by this date.
