The Computing and Mathematical Sciences (CMS) Department at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) invites applications for tenure-track faculty positions in all areas of applied mathematics, computer science, and related disciplines.
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. Application foci include computational physical and life sciences, distributed systems, economics, graphics, quantum computing, and robotics and autonomous systems. The CMS Department is part of the Division of Engineering and Applied Science (EAS), comprising researchers working in and between the fields of aerospace, civil, electrical, environmental, mechanical, and medical engineering, as well as 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, and appointment as an assistant professor is contingent upon the completion of a PhD degree in applied mathematics, computer science, engineering, or the sciences. The initial appointment at the assistant professor level is four years and is contingent upon completion of a PhD degree. Reappointment beyond the initial term is contingent upon successful review conducted prior to the commencement of the fourth year.
Applications will be reviewed beginning 15 November 2019 but all applications received before 15 January 2020 will receive full consideration.
