The Department of Mathematics at the University of California, Los Angeles, invites applications for a tenure-track or tenured faculty position. An applicant should make a stable commitment to provide intellectual leadership for UCLA’s evolving program in Financial/Actuarial Mathematics and those components of its Mathematics-Economics program that concern financial mathematics. A suitable candidate need not be a credentialed actuary or a professional in financial mathematics, but a background of research and/or professional activity directly relating to these areas (broadly construed) would be helpful.
Candidates must have a Ph.D. degree (or equivalent) or expect to complete their Ph.D. by June 2020. A competitive candidate should have a trans-formative research program and show excellence in undergraduate teaching and educational innovation. We encourage applications from distinguished candidates at senior levels. Salary is commensurate with education and experience.
As a campus with a diverse student body, we encourage applications from women, minorities, and individuals with a history of mentoring under-represented minorities in the sciences. The preferred candidate will also demonstrate a commitment to mentoring students from underrepresented and under-served populations in the sciences, or demonstrate an interest in campus-wide or departmental programs that provide research and professional development opportunities for a diverse student body. Please include such statements within your Statement of Contributions to Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.
Applications will be accepted until the position is filled. To guarantee full consideration, the application should be received by November 15, 2019. Interested applicants should apply at UCLA Academic Recruit at: https://recruit.apo.ucla.edu/JPF04948
