Postdoctoral

Research Associate

The Department of Mathematics is seeking a research associate to work at the interface of theoretical neuroscience and applied algebra or topology. An ideal candidate is a new/recent mathematics Ph.D. with background in areas such as algebraic topology, geometry, commutative algebra, or combinatorics.  Prior familiarity with neuroscience is not required, but interest in learning the relevant background is expected.  The research associate will engage in the development of novel mathematical methods for understanding neural coding and neural networks. This position may include teaching.  Excellence in teaching is required. A Ph.D. in mathematics is required. Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled.  Applicants must complete the Penn State application at https://app2.ohr.psu.edu/Jobs/External/EVMS2_External/currentap1.cfm#55576 and must submit an application through Mathjobs.org (https://www.mathjobs.org/jobs) with the following materials in order for the application to be complete: 1) at least three reference letters (one letter must address in details the candidate’s abilities as a teacher), (2) Curriculum Vitae, (3) Publication List, (4) Cover letter, (5) Research Statement, and (6) Teaching Statement. Further information can be received from vui1@math.psu.edu. See also http://sites.psu.edu/mathneurolab/ for more information. This is a non-tenure track 48-week appointment funded for one year from date of hire with excellent possibility of refunding.

Postdoctoral Scholar

The Center for Computational Mathematics and Applications (CCMA) in the Department of Mathematics at The Pennsylvania State University, University Park, is seeking one or two scholars for postdoctoral appointments. Successful candidates will hold a PhD in mathematics or a related field (such as physics, engineering, computer science).  The position requires expertise in numerical methods for partial differential equations. Fortran, C, or C++ programing is required. Experience in heterogeneous parallel computing is desirable but not required. Appointed candidates will work closely with the faculty at the CCMA on research related to numerical methods for large-scale practical applications. The postdoctoral scholar will contribute to a number of research projects including the CCMA’s projects supported by the NSF, the DOE and industries. The number of candidates appointed will depend on the availability of funding.  These appointments may include the possibility of teaching.  This is a non-tenure track 48-week appointment.  Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position(s) are filled.  Applicants must apply online and complete the Penn State application at https://app2.ohr.psu.edu/Jobs/External/EVMS2_External/currentap1.cfm#54288 and must submit an application through Mathjobs.org (https://www.mathjobs.org/jobs). with the following materials in order for the application to be complete: 1) Cover letter addressed to Professor Xu, 2) Current vitae including a list of publications, 3) Current research statement, 4) Three letters of recommendation addressed to Professor Xu (Please ensure that one of the letters addresses your teaching background and ability.)  We encourage applications from individuals of diverse backgrounds.
