Faculty Employment Opportunities

The Department of Mathematics of the University of Oregon is a Tier I research department with internationally recognized research groups in Algebra, Analysis, Topology, Geometry and Probability/Statistics. The Department has a strong and vibrant PhD program with over 60 students.

The University of Oregon is located in Eugene, Oregon, home to more than 156,000 people and Oregon’s third largest city. Ocean, beaches, lakes, rivers, forests, high desert, and the Cascade and Coast mountain ranges are all within only an hour or two drive. The Willamette River runs through the heart of the city and joins the McKenzie River north of town. Mild winters, long growing seasons and few drastic weather changes are characteristic. Eugene has a high percentage of professionals, including doctors, lawyers, architects, and educators, and is home to the Hult Center for the Performing Arts, which regularly hosts the Oregon Bach Festival, the Eugene Symphony, the Eugene Ballet, and the Eugene Opera, among other cultural offerings.

The Department of Mathematics provides an excellent research environment with many fine mentoring opportunities.

ASSISTANT PROFESSOR BIOLOGY AND MATHEMATICS

Tenure track position in Computational Neuroscience

The Departments of Biology and Mathematics and the Institute of Neuroscience at the University of Oregon announce a tenure track faculty position in computational neuroscience at the rank of assistant professor with ultimate department and institute affiliations flexible. Theorists seeking synergistic interactions with experimentalists in design, analysis and interpretation of research linking gene function, neuronal activity and behavior in model organisms and humans are especially encouraged to apply. This new position is part of an integrated effort to strengthen research at the nexus of mathematics and biology at the University of Oregon. It also advances a broader “Neurons to Minds” initiative that includes multiple new positions in systems and cognitive neuroscience to accelerate discovery in the neuronal basis of behavior and cognition.

Minimum qualifications for candidates are a Ph.D. in an appropriate field (e.g. neuroscience, biology, mathematics, physics, electrical engineering, statistics, computer science, etc.), commitment to excellent teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and an outstanding research record. Candidates should have the ability to work effectively within a diverse community.  Applications will be received online at https://www.mathjobs.org/jobs/jobs/9125. Candidates are asked to submit a cover letter, a curriculum vitae including a publication list, a statement of research accomplishments and future research plans, a description of teaching experience and philosophy, and three letters of recommendation (sent independently).  Submission of 1-3 selected reprints is encouraged. To be assured of consideration, application materials should be uploaded by November 15, 2016, but the position will remain open until filled. Requests for information can be sent to Dr. Shawn Lockery, Chair, Computational Neuroscience Search Committee (shawn@uoregon.edu).

 

ASSISTANT PROFESSOR BIOLOGY, MATHEMATICS, and COMPUTER AND INFORMATION SCIENCES

Three tenure track positions in Genomics, Bioinformatics or Statistical Genetics

The Departments of Biology, Mathematics, and Computer and Information Sciences at the University of Oregon announce a cluster of three tenure track faculty positions in computational and/or mathematical biology focusing within the areas of computational genomics, bioinformatics, and statistical genetics. We seek candidates applying quantitative approaches to address fundamental questions in genetics, cell biology, molecular biology, development, microbiology, neuroscience, evolution, ecology and/or human health. One of the positions may be at the full or associate professor level, with the others at the assistant professor level. These positions are part of a growing initiative aimed at creating a new research and training program in the computational sciences across multiple disciplines on campus, including a new $5 million high performance computing facility.

Successful candidates will have an appointment in one or more of the host departments and may join one of the interdisciplinary research institute on campus, which include the Institute of Molecular Biology, the Institute of Ecology and Evolution, the Institute of Neuroscience, and the Prevention Science Institute as appropriate. Depending on their interests, candidates may choose to affiliate with other ongoing research programs including the META Center for Host-Microbe Systems Biology and the Center for Genome Function, Integrated Analysis of Biological Networks, and Neurons to Minds cluster initiatives. One of the positions will specifically focus on human genomics in affiliation with our Health Promotion and Obesity Prevention Initiative.

Minimum qualifications for candidates are a Ph.D. in an appropriate field, commitment to excellent teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and an outstanding research record. Candidates should have the ability to work effectively within a diverse community. Interested persons should apply online to the University of Oregon GENOMICS search at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/8211. Candidates are asked to submit a cover letter, a curriculum vitae including a publication list, a statement of research accomplishments and future research plans, a description of teaching experience and philosophy, and three letters of recommendation (sent independently). Submission of 1-3 selected reprints is encouraged. To be assured of consideration, application materials should be uploaded by November 15, 2016, but the positions will remain open until filled. Requests for more information can be sent to Dr. Patrick Phillips, Chair, Genomics search (pphil@uoregon.edu).
