Faculty Position Posting in Numerical Linear Algebra

Global Impact logo

The Department of Computational Mathematics, Science, and Engineering (CMSE) at Michigan State University invite applications for a tenure-system position in the area of Numerical Linear Algebra.  Candidates must have a PhD in Mathematics, Statistics, Computer Science, or a related field.  The position will be filled at the assistant, associate, or full professor level depending on the qualifications and record of the successful candidate. The candidate is expected to establish a sustainable research program, make significant scholarly contributions to their discipline, be an effective teacher and mentor of both undergraduate and graduate students, and engage in institutional and professional service.

The Department of CMSE is particularly interested in candidates whose research efforts focus on numerical linear algebra as applied to large-scale and high performance computing, including linear solvers, non-linear solvers, eigensolvers, preconditioning techniques for massively parallel applications, and fast direct solvers, as well as novel numerical methods designed to achieve high performance on heterogeneous computing platforms, and next-generation High Performance Computing hardware.

Michigan State University is making a bold new effort by launching the CMSE Department, recognizing that computational and data science is a fundamental area of research in the 21st century (https://cmse.msu.edu). The Department seeks to create an interdisciplinary environment that fosters a new breed of algorithmists who will address emergent problems in science and engineering, setting the stage for computation to be on the same footing as experiment and theory in its role in scientific discovery.

MSU enjoys a park-like campus with outlying research facilities and natural areas. The campus is adjacent to the city of East Lansing and the capital city of Lansing. The Lansing metropolitan area has a diverse population of approximately 470,000.  Local communities have excellent school systems and place a high value on education. Michigan State University is pro-active in exploring opportunities for employment for dual career couples, both inside and outside the University.
