The Department of Mathematics at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor targeting expertise in the mathematical foundations and computational and translational applications of data science. The Department seeks applicants with a demonstrated potential for excellence in research, teaching at the graduate and undergraduate level, and a commitment to cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural collaboration and outreach. The mathematical foundations of data science are broadly construed and may include approaches spanning topology, geometry, optimization, and diverse aspects of analysis relevant to data science. Computational and translational applications are also broadly construed. We are casting a broad net in search of highly talented individuals who aspire to integrate their expertise with Departmental and campus-wide strengths, and who are committed to securing strong external funding support.
Demonstrate the potential for excellence in research, teaching at the graduate and undergraduate level, and a commitment to cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural collaboration and outreach.

About UNC Department of Mathematics
The mission of the Department of Mathematics at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is to extend the frontiers of mathematical knowledge and the ways it is used in the real world, to disseminate that knowledge and train the next generation of teachers and researchers, as well as those choosing careers with industry or government. The Department is committed to building and nourishing interaction with other units across campus using mathematics, institutes and industries in the research triangle, across the state and the nation. The Department maintains a strong research program as well as a comprehensive educational program. An active, healthy research environment is essential for the training of graduate students and enlivens the teaching of undergraduate courses, bringing students into contact with new and relevant mathematics and creating a population with the necessary mathematical skills and appreciation, encouraging some to join the next generation of researchers and educators. The fundamental importance of education in mathematics is reflected in the General College curriculum’s foundations and connections requirements in quantitative methods. The Department is s...trongly committed to making its programs open and accessible to members of groups historically underrepresented in the sciences.
