Stanford University invites applications for a tenure-track or tenured position made possible in part by a gift from the Simons Foundation under the Math+X program, whose goal is to increase the interaction between mathematics and other disciplines in science and engineering.
We are seeking exceptional applicants who will develop a program of research and innovative new courses at the frontier of areas such as computational mathematics/statistics, imaging science, optimization or any other applicable field. This is a broad-area search. We will place higher priority on the impact, originality, and promise of the candidate's work than on the particular sub-area of specialization. Evidence of the ability to pursue a program of innovative research and a strong commitment to graduate and undergraduate teaching are required. The successful candidate will teach courses at the graduate and undergraduate levels and build and lead a team of graduate students in PhD research.
Applicants will be considered for a joint appointment between either the Department of Mathematics or the Department of Statistics and another department of science or engineering, or the Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering.
Applicants should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, list of publications, and a brief statement of research and teaching interests. Also, the candidate should arrange to have at least three letters of recommendation (junior candidates only); or names and addresses of three references (senior candidates only). Please apply and submit these materials through mathjobs.org; please check “Math+X” as a job title. For additional information you may email firstname.lastname@example.org with Math+X in the subject. Full consideration will be given to applications received before December 1, 2018. Applications received after this date will be accepted until the position is filled.

All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law. Stanford also welcomes applications from others who would bring additional dimensions to the University’s research, teaching and clinical missions.

About Stanford University
Located between San Francisco and San Jose in the heart of Silicon Valley, Stanford University is recognized as one of the world's leading research and teaching institutions. Leland and Jane Stanford founded the University to "promote the public welfare by exercising an influence on behalf of humanity and civilization." Stanford opened its doors in 1891, and more than a century later, it remains dedicated to finding solutions to the great challenges of the day and to preparing students for leadership in a complex world. The University's thriving diverse community is comprised of nearly 7000 undergraduate students, 9000 graduate students, 2000 faculty members, 1900 postdoctoral scholars, and over 11,000 academic and administrative staff in seven schools including several interdisciplinary research centers and institutes. The campus spreads over 8000 contiguous acres and nearly all undergraduates live on campus. Stanford offers bachelor's and master's degrees in addition to doctoral degrees (PhD, MD, DMA and JD) plus a number of professional and continuing education programs and certifications.
