FTCC, Postdoctoral, and Visiting Faculty Positions in Mathematics

Updated: 4 days ago
NYU Shanghai is currently inviting applications for several Visiting and Non-Tenure Track Professor positions in Mathematics, as well as Postdoctoral Fellow positions. The Mathematics group at NYU Shanghai is built with the collaboration and help of the Courant Institute, and interacts with East China Normal University. We seek candidates who have completed a Ph.D. in Mathematics or a closely related discipline by the time of appointment. We invite applications from candidates in any domain of mathematics. The search for professors, both visiting and contract, is not restricted to any rank; all levels of seniority will be considered, although in general applicants are expected to have at least three years of experience after their Ph.D.

Typical appointments for a Full-Time Continuing Contract Faculty (FTCC) position are on three year terms, with expected teaching loads of four courses per academic year. While we seek applications from candidates with an active research profile, successful candidates will be hired on the basis of teaching and service.

Visiting positions and postdoctoral positions are more research-intensive. Visiting positions are generally for one or two semesters, but longer terms can be discussed; the teaching commitments include teaching two to three courses per year. Postdoctoral positions are commonly offered for two years, and potentially renewable for an additional year; they incur a teaching load of two recitations per semester.

Applicants will submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a statement on current/future research interests, a statement of teaching interests, and an electronic copy of three selected publications via Interfolio. Additionally, applicants may be prompted to enter the names and email addresses of at least three referees. Each referee will be contacted to upload a reference letter through Interfolio.

Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the positions are filled. To apply, follow this link: https://apply.interfolio.com/116526 . If you have any questions, please email the NYU Shanghai NY Office of Faculty Recruitment at shanghai.faculty.recruitment@nyu.edu.

Terms of employment at NYU Shanghai are comparable to NYU New York and other U.S. institutions.
