Positions at Stony Brook Mathematics/IMS

The Mathematics Department and the Institute for Mathematical Sciences (IMS) at Stony Brook University expect to have postdoctoral positions available beginning in the fall semester of 2019 contingent on funding availability. We are looking for one Simons Instructor and one Gromoll Instructor (three-year post-doctoral appointment with a competitive salary and reduced teaching), and two Milnor Lecturers (a two to three year post-doctoral appointment in the IMS with reduced teaching and competitive salary). Applicants in all fields are welcome to apply. The Mathematics Department and the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics (SCGP) run a collaborative NSF-funded RTG program in geometry (broadly interpreted). RTG-eligible candidates are to apply through the SCGP mathjobs posting.

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 Rail Road connects the Stony Brook Station on campus to midtown Manhattan.
