Positions at Stony Brook Mathematics/IMS

The Mathematics Department and the Institute for Mathematical Sciences (IMS) at Stony Brook University expect to have several positions available beginning in the Fall semester of 2017 contingent on funding availability. We are looking for tenure-track and/or tenured faculty members, several Simons Instructors (a three-year post-doctoral appointment with a competitive salary and reduced teaching), several Milnor Lecturers (a two- to three year post-doctoral appointment in the IMS with reduced teaching and competitive salary), and several visiting associate/full professors .

We seek candidates with outstanding research potential and strong commitment to teaching. Applicants in all fields are encouraged to apply. Along with mathematicians working in areas of traditional interest in the department – which include geometry and topology in many flavors, complex and real analysis, dynamical systems, mathematical physics, and mathematics education – we are also interested in building up in other areas, including algebra, PDE and probability.

Our 1,100-acre campus is home to 24,000 undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students and more than 13,500 faculty and staff, including those employed at Stony Brook University Medical Center, Suffolk County's only academic medical center. The University is a member of the Association of American Universities and co-manager of nearby Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), a multidisciplinary research laboratory supporting world class scientific programs. The recently established Simons Center for Geometry and Physics, located next to the math building, runs intensive programs on the interface between mathematics and theoretical physics, over one thousand scientists pass through the SCGP annually. Many opportunities exist for collaborative research and, in some cases joint appointments can be arranged.

Home to many highly ranked graduate research programs, Stony Brook University is located 60 miles from New York City on Long Island's scenic North Shore. The Long Island Railroad connects the Stony Brook Station on campus to midtown Manhattan.

Applicants should complete the American Mathematical Society’s application process on-line at http://www.mathjobs.org. The application consists of: 1) AMS Standard Cover Sheet, 2) cover letter, 3) CV, 4) publication list, 5) research statement, 6) teaching statement, and 7) three or more reference letters. Electronic reference letters are preferred but the department will also accept letters via postal mail. We particularly encourage applications from minorities and under-represented groups.

Alternative format: Submit your cover letter, CV, publication list, research and teaching statements and three reference letters to:
