The Division of Applied Mathematics seeks applications for a Prager Assistant Professorship, a three-year, non-tenured, and non-renewable appointment, with a start date of July 1, 2021. The teaching load for this position is one course per semester.

Candidates are required to have received a Ph.D. degree or equivalent by the start of this appointment and may have up to three years of prior academic and/or postdoctoral research experience. Applicants should have strong research potential and a commitment to teaching, and their field of research should be consistent with the current research interests of the departmental faculty.

The Division of Applied Mathematics values diversity and inclusion as essential to achieving excellence. We especially encourage applications from those belonging to groups traditionally underrepresented in the mathematical sciences.

Consideration of applications will begin on December 7, 2020. To apply for this position, please visit,

Undergraduate Teaching Assistant

Interested in becoming an Undergraduate Teaching Assistant (UTA) in the Division of Applied Mathematics?    

Each semester, we seek undergraduate students who are interested in being UTAs for selected APMA courses. UTAs are an integral part of our teaching effort and play an important role.  Responsibilities include assisting with recitation sessions or study sections, holding office hours where students can get guidance on topics arising from the course, and helping review student assignments.  Through peer-to-peer engagement, UTAs can play a very positive role in shaping a student’s perspective on the learning and application of applied mathematics.  Serving as a UTA can also be a learning experience, developing communication skills and reinforcing one’s own knowledge of course topics.

UTAs receive an hourly wage, but we do not currently give course credit for being a UTA. UTA positions are advertised in Workday.  Usually, positions are advertised in mid-April (and then possibly again in mid-September) for the fall semester, and in mid-November (and possibly again in early February) for the spring semester.

For the current academic year 2020-2021, with the three semesters, we are now asking for applications for UTA positions for the spring semester and these should be submitted before November 30. We will begin applications for UTAs for the summer semester in mid-March. This will probably be combined with applications for the following fall semester. Specific dates will be set when the dates for course registration are posted.

If you have questions about UTA positions, please contact Professor Martin Maxey; for questions about the application process, please contact Jean Radican.
