Applications are invited for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position 
in biomathematics at Florida State University, beginning August, 2020. 
Candidates should have a Ph.D. in mathematics or a related discipline and 
postdoctoral experience in some area of biomathematics. The ideal 
candidate will have experience working with experimental data,
and will pursue collaborations with experimental scientists. The position 
is joint with the Institute of Molecular Biophysics (IMB), whose core 
mission is to facilitate interdisciplinary research related to the 
biological sciences on campus. The IMB hosts an interdisciplinary graduate 
program in Molecular Biophysics, and there is a separate interdisciplinary 
graduate program in Neuroscience on campus. The new hire could participate
in either or both programs, in addition to the graduate program in biomathematics.
The Mathematics Department is also an active participant in a new 
initiative on Data Science at the university, and with this hire seeks to 
strengthen the ties between mathematical data science and biomathematics.

Florida State University is one of two flagship research universities in 
the State University System of Florida, and is ranked number 18 among all 
public universities in the country by U.S. News and World Report. The 
university enrolls over 40,000 students in the main campus of Tallahassee. 
Tallahassee is located in north Florida and has a population of roughly 
190,000. It is adjacent to the Apalachicola National Forest and about
twenty-five miles from the Gulf of Mexico, with easy access to pristine 
beaches and other natural habitats. Tallahassee has a warm climate, with 
an annual average high temperature of 80 degrees Fahrenheit and an annual 
average low temperature of 56 degrees Fahrenheit.

The Mathematics Department offers BS, MS, and PhD degrees in biomathematics,
as well as degrees in several other areas of mathematics. The biomathematics 
curriculum includes courses within mathematics as well as courses offered 
in other departments. There are currently 19 undergraduate majors and 19 
MS or PhD students enrolled in the biomathematics program. See 
http://www.math.fsu.edu/biomath and http://biophysics.fsu.edu
for more information.

Applications should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, research and 
teaching statements, and four letters of recommendation (at least one of 
the letters should address the candidate's teaching capability). They 
should be submitted electronically through MathJobs.org and, in addition, 
through the FSU Employment and Recruiting Services
website http://www.jobs.fsu.edu/ (Job opening ID 46351).
