Positions within the Numerical Analysis & Scientific Computing research group

in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Strathclyde are now available, from accelerated promotion posts for early career researchers to senior Professorships. To apply, please go to

Numerical analysis researchers are strongly encouraged to apply under the theme Measurement science & enabling technologies quoting the subtheme Data analytics & modelling methodologies.

The Department of Applied Mathematics at the University of Colorado at Boulder invites applications for two tenure track faculty positions at the Assistant Professor level to begin August 2019.

One position is in the area of computational mathematics, with possible areas of emphasis including numerical analysis of differential equations, randomized numerical linear algebra, optimization and inverse problems, scientific computing, and related areas.

The other position is in the area of high dimensional data analysis (big data), with possible areas of emphasis including nonlinear optimization, analysis in high-dimensional spaces, randomized projections, probabilistic numerics, harmonic analysis, theoretical deep learning, and related areas.

For both positions, exceptional candidates in all fields of Applied Mathematics may be considered. Note that the most competitive candidates will have likely had postdoctoral training.

The candidate is expected to take an active role in undergraduate and graduate teaching, conduct a vigorous externally funded research program, advise graduate students, and participate in department and university governance.

For more details and to apply, please see (for the first and second positions, respectively):

Review of applications will begin on October 16, 2018; applications will be accepted until the position is filled.

Contact Stephen Becker, Daniel Appelo (chair of first search) or David Bortz (chair of second search) if you have any questions.

Sandia National Laboratories invites outstanding candidates to apply for the 2019 John von Neumann Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Computational Science. This prestigious fellowship is partially supported by the Applied Mathematics Research Program in the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Advanced Scientific Computing Research. The fellowship provides an exceptional opportunity for innovative research in computational mathematics and scientific computing on advanced computing architectures with application to a broad range of science and engineering problems of national importance. Applicants must have or soon receive a Ph.D. in applied/computational mathematics or related computational science and engineering disciplines. Applicants must have less than three years of postdoctoral experience. This appointment is for one year, with a possible renewal for a second year, and includes a highly competitive salary, moving expenses and a generous professional travel allowance.

Applications will be reviewed upon receipt. Complete applications received by November 26, 2018 will receive full consideration.

The Department of Mathematics at NC State University has an open postdoctoral position under its new NSF funded Research Training Group RTG, DMS-1745654 in Randomized Numerical Analysis. The position is restricted to US citizens, nationals and permanent residents. The postdoctoral associate must hold a Ph.D. in mathematics or a closely related discipline awarded after January 1, 2017. An exception to this rule, occasioned for instance by a career interruption, may be requested in the cover letter.

The postdoctoral associate is expected to engage in research related to at least one of the three complementary research thrusts of the project in randomized numerical linear algebra, random nonlinear solvers and global sensitivity analysis. Strengths in applied probability, numerical analysis, and scientific computing are an asset. Based on background, experience, and interests, the postdoc will be assigned one research mentor from the faculty associated with the RTG: Alen Alexanderian, Pierre Gremaud, Ilse Ipsen, Tim Kelley, Arvind Saibaba and Ralph Smith. An academic mentor will be chosen from this group to oversee the postdoc’s training and professional development. The postdoc will also play a leading role in mentoring students associated with some of the project’s working groups; he/she will be expected to assist in organizing seminars and activities related to the general research of the RTG. In addition, the postdoc will teach on average one course per semester in the Department of Mathematics.

This position is for a term of up to three years, contingent upon performance. The starting date is anticipated between January and August 2019. The 11-month salary of $62,500 includes summer support. In addition, the postdoc will be given an annual travel budget of $3,000.

Submit your application materials (cover letter, a CV, a research statement and the names of at least three potential letter writers) through at Women and members of under-represented minority groups are particularly encouraged to apply. Applications will be evaluated on a rolling basis until the position is filled; please apply as soon as possible. Inquiries may be directed to Pierre Gremaud (RTG Director):

Dear Colleagues,

Berkeley Lab’s Computational Research Division is looking for a career-track research scientist. The successful candidate will perform research in parallel and high-performance algorithms for one or more of the following areas: biology, machine learning & graph computations.
