IMPACT Postdocs

Postdoctoral Positions - School of Mathematics

Georgia Institute of Technology

The Interdisciplinary Mathematics Preparation and Career Training (IMPACT) Postdoctoral Program is supported through generous funding by the National Science Foundation through a "Mentoring Through Critical Transition Points" grant as well as the School of Mathematics and College of Sciences at Georgia Tech.

IMPACT addresses the critical transition from graduate student to tenure-track faculty by expanding research horizons, enhancing teaching effectiveness, and advancing professional development. Through an innovative research cohort model, and with the support of mentored career training, IMPACT Fellows will be well-prepared for the challenges faced by new faculty.

Postdoctoral fellows are recruited in cohort groups of three postdocs around a common interdisciplinary research theme. The first three Math+X cohort themes are:

2014 - 2017:Applied & Computational Mathematics plus Computational Science & Engineering2015 - 2018:Discrete Mathematics plus Molecular Biology2016 - 2019:Analysis plus Electrical & Computer Engineering

Recruiting for the DM+MB 2015 - 2018 program begins immediately.

The IMPACT positions will be for three years, with a competitive salary and standard benefits including health insurance. Fellows will have limited teaching responsibilities of one course per semester, and a fund for research expenses.

Requirements include: (1) PhD in mathematics or other closely related field; (2) Demonstrated research excellence in Applied & Computational Mathematics or other closely related area; (3) Strong oral and written communication skills; (4) Clear evidence of teaching effectiveness; (5) US Citizen or Permanent Resident.

Highly qualified candidates from groups underrepresented in the mathematical sciences are strongly encouraged to apply.

Any eligible candidates who have already applied for a postdoctoral position at Georgia Tech will be considered. New applications should be submitted through MathJobs.Org.

Applications will be reviewed starting immediately, and continue until the positions are filled.

Questions or concerns should be addressed to impact@math.gatech.edu.
