Dear comp-neuro list members,

The Department of Mathematical Sciences (DMS) at New Jersey Institute of 
Technology (NJIT) invites applications for a tenure-track position at 
the assistant professor level in mathematical biology. A second DMS 
tenure-track assistant professor position in the broader area of applied 
mathematics is advertised separately (links provided below). The 
appointment is to start in Fall 2018. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in 
mathematics, applied mathematics or a related discipline, with an 
established record of independent research, strong potential for seeking 
external research support, and a commitment to teaching at graduate and 
undergraduate levels.

Candidates working in any subfield of mathematical biology will be given 
consideration. Currently, members of the DMS mathematical biology group 
are engaged in research in computational neuroscience, biological 
rhythms, biofluids and mechanosensing.

To apply, please visit 
The second position in applied mathematics is advertised separately at

Submissions must include (a) cover letter, (b) resume/CV, (c) research 
statement, (d) teaching statement, and (e) names and contact information 
for at least four references. Review of applications will begin 
immediately and will continue until the position is filled. Please 
direct any questions to the search committee chair, Victor Matveev, at 
matveev at njit.edu.

DMS is recognized for its strong program in applied mathematics, which 
offers B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees, with Ph.D. program tracks in 
applied mathematics as well as in applied probability and statistics. 
NJIT is in the University Heights neighborhood next to vibrant downtown 
Newark, about 12 miles west of New York City. The NJIT campus is 
adjacent to the campus of Rutgers-Newark, with which it shares several 
academic programs. DMS has close collaborative ties to the Department of 
Biological Sciences at NJIT. Excellent potential for outside 
collaboration is also afforded by the close geographic proximity of NJIT 
to other prominent centers for biological research such as the Center 
for Molecular and Behavioral Neuroscience at Rutgers-Newark, New Jersey 
Medical School, NYU, Columbia University, and Rockefeller University. 
Apart from mathematical biology, DMS faculty work in diverse fields of 
applied mathematics including fluid dynamics, granular matter, nonlinear 
waves, applied analysis, scientific computing, dynamical systems, and 
probability and statistics.

NJIT is an Equal Opportunity / Affirmative Action Employer and strongly 
encourages women, minorities, and persons with disabilities to apply.
