Tulane University Tenure-Track Positions

The Department of Mathematics at Tulane University invites applications for tenure-track positions to begin in the fall 2021. Applicants at the Assistant Professor level are preferred but applicants at the Associate Professor level may also be considered. We seek candidates who have established or have demonstrated the potential for a strong record of independent research and are committed to excellence in teaching. The typical teaching load is two courses in the fall semester and one in the spring.

We seek applicants working in the following priority areas:

  1. Computational Mathematics, including scientific computation, numerical analysis, and mathematical modeling. We seek candidates in all areas of computational mathematics, particularly those who will enhance our department’s current research, known for modeling, analysis, and simulation of biological systems.  
  2. Core Mathematics. We seek candidates whose work makes connections to our department’s active research in Algebra, Combinatorics, Number Theory, Topology, Geometry, Analysis and related areas.

In all cases, the successful candidates will be expected to (1) develop and carry out a program of research and other scholarly activities; and (2) teach and advise students at the undergraduate, masters, and doctoral levels.

The Mathematics Department faculty at Tulane University consists of 22 tenured/tenure-track faculty members whose interests span a broad range of fields in core and applied mathematics as well as statistics, and 4 Professors of Practice. Please visit us at https://sse.tulane.edu/math.
