DESCRIPTION

The Department of Applied Mathematics (https://www.soe.ucsc.edu/departments/applied-mathematics at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in the field of Applied Mathematics, specializing in mathematical biology and computational biology. The department is committed to undergraduate teaching, graduate education and interdisciplinary research. Current faculty research is focused on mathematical modeling, including dynamical systems, mathematical biology, fluid dynamics, control theory and uncertainty quantification, with applications to astrophysics, biology, engineering and geophysics.

The Department of Applied Mathematics is part of the Baskin School of Engineering at UC Santa Cruz. Our school has nationally and internationally known researchers in many areas. UC Santa Cruz is a member of the AAU, an association of the top research universities in the US. Our campus is the nearest University of California campus to Silicon Valley and has close research ties with the local computer industry. Nestled in a redwood forest above the city of Santa Cruz, our beautiful campus has a long history of embracing groundbreaking interdisciplinary work. Our proximity to Silicon Valley, and our satellite campus there, afford opportunities and avenues for collaboration with researchers working in the many research and development labs in Silicon Valley, as well as with the other San Francisco Bay Area universities.

The successful candidate is expected to develop a research program with applications in biology, advise graduate students (MS and PhD) in their research area, obtain external funding, develop and teach courses within the undergraduate and graduate curriculum, perform university, public and professional service, and interact broadly with the large number of researchers in Silicon Valley industrial research and advanced development labs. The successful candidate should be able to work with students, faculty, and staff from a wide range of social and cultural backgrounds, genders, and sexual orientations.

We welcome candidates who understand the barriers facing traditionally underrepresented groups in higher education, and who have engaged in teaching, research, professional and/or public service contributions that promote diversity, equity, and inclusion. These can take a variety of forms such as, but not limited to, effective pedagogical strategies used for the educational advancement of students in underrepresented groups; demonstrated contributions to the advancement of access and equal opportunity in education; and participation in activities that support the recruitment, retention, and success of scholars and students.
