Position description

The Department of Mathematics at the University of California, Los Angeles, invites applications for Geometry and Topology RTG postdoc positions. Appointments are for three years, and teaching load is three one-quarter courses per year. The salary will be $69,350 per year, and an additional $13,000 will be provided for summer support for the first two summers. There are 2 positions and since they are partially funded by an NSF Research Training Grant (RTG), the applicants must be US citizens or US permanent residents.
Applicants must possess a Ph.D. in geometry or topology (pure or applied) or expect to complete their Ph.D. by June 2024 and should show evidence of excellence in teaching and research.

All applicants should indicate the AMS Subject Classification that most accurately represents their research area on UC Recruit.
As a campus with a diverse student body, we encourage applications from women, minorities, and individuals with a history of mentoring underrepresented minorities in the sciences. The preferred candidate will also demonstrate a commitment to supporting students from underrepresented and underserved 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 Diversity.

The University of California is committed to creating and maintaining a community dedicated to the advancement, application, and transmission of knowledge and creative endeavors through academic excellence, where all individuals who participate in University programs and activities can work and learn together in a safe and secure environment, free of violence, harassment, bullying and other demeaning behavior, discrimination, exploitation, or intimidation. With this commitment as well as a commitment to addressing all forms of academic misconduct, UCLA conducts targeted employment reference checks for finalists to whom departments or other hiring units would like to extend formal offers of appointment into Academic Senate faculty positions. The targeted employment reference checks involve contacting the finalists’ current and prior places of employment to ask whether there have been substantiated findings of misconduct that would violate the University’s Faculty Code of Conduct. To implement this process, UCLA requires all applicants for Academic Senate faculty positions to complete, sign, and upload the form entitled “Authorization to Release Information” into RECRUIT as part of their application. If the applicant does not include the signed authorization to release information with the application materials, the application will be considered incomplete. As with any incomplete application, the application will not receive further consideration. Although all applicants for faculty recruitments must complete the entire application, only finalists (i.e., those to whom the department or other hiring unit would like to extend a formal offer) considered for Academic Senate faculty positions will be subject to targeted employment reference checks.
Appointments will be effective July 1, 2024 or later. Applications will be accepted until all positions are filled. For fullest consideration, all application materials should be submitted on or before December 1, 2023.
