Two tenure-track positions at American University in Washington, D.C.


-------------Computational Neuroscience--------------------

The College of Arts and Sciences at American University (Washington,  
DC) invites applications for a full‐time, tenure‐track, Assistant  
Professor position, beginning in August 2012, in computational  
neuroscience (broadly defined, including but not limited to neural  
networks, simulation, image processing, and bio‐informatics).

The appointee's tenure home and departmental affiliation will depend  
on his or her research background. Applicants must have a PhD in a  
relevant discipline. Teaching and post‐doctoral experience are  
preferred. Responsibilities include: teaching and curriculum  
development; establishing an internationally recognized research  
program, preferably one that can involve undergraduate research  
participation; strengthening connections to neurosciences across  
campus; and service to the appointee's home department and the wider  
university.

American University has made other recent hires in neuroscience, and  
benefits from proximity to other scientific institutions in the  
Washington area. (For example, NIH is three metro stops from the AU  
campus.) The College of Arts and Sciences offers a variety of degrees  
at the undergraduate, masters, and doctoral levels. For more  
information about our programs, visit www.american.edu/cas/.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, teaching  
statement, and research statement, and applicants must arrange for  
three letters of recommendation to be sent directly to the search  
committee. Materials can be submitted online (highly preferred) at http://academicjobsonline.org/ajo 
, or via email to CompNeuroSearch at american.edu, or in hard copy to  
Computational Neuroscience Search Committee, Department of Mathematics  
and Statistics, American University, Washington, DC 20016‐8050.  
Applications received by December 10, 2011 will receive full  
consideration. American University is an EEO/AA institution, committed  
to a diverse faculty, staff, and student body. Women and minority  
candidates are strongly encouraged to apply. American University  
offers employee benefits to same-°©‐sex domestic partners of  
employees and prohibits discrimination on the basis of sexual  
orientation/preference and gender identity/expression.



-------------Applied Mathematics --------------------

The  College  of  Arts  and  Sciences  at  American  University   
(Washington,  DC)  invites  applications  for  a  full‐time,   
tenure‐track  position,  beginning  in  Fall  2012,  in  applied   
mathematics  with  a  focus  in  computational  life  sciences,   
probability,  image  and  signal  processing,  or  applied   
cryptography.  The  rank  of  this  position  is  Assistant   
Professor  or  Associate  Professor.   In  the  latter  case,   
depending  on  qualifications,  the  appointee  to  this  position

address  the  applicant’s  teaching  credentials.  Submissions  of   
applications  via  www.mathjobs.org  are  preferred  but  email  and   
paper  applications  will  be  accepted.  In  the  later  cases,   
materials  should  be  sent  to:  lgreene at american.edu,  or  Applied   
Mathematics  Search  Committee,  Department  of  Mathematics  and   
Statistics,  American  University,  Washington,  DC  20016‐8050.
