The Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) seeks applicants for a position at either the tenure-track or tenured rank in the area of Applied Mathematics with a focus on Computational Neuroscience, broadly interpreted, with an expected start date of July 1, 2018. This is part of a broader commitment to revitalize and expand Applied Mathematics, which is among the top five majors at Harvard College, in terms of its teaching and research missions.
Candidates should have demonstrated expertise at the interface of applied mathematics and computational neuroscience with significant and innovative applications to science and/or engineering. Candidates should have enthusiasm for teaching both graduate and undergraduate courses at the interface of applied mathematics, neuroscience, and engineering and applied sciences. The position has potential for links to the Center for Brain Science, the Institute for Applied Computational Science, the Harvard Brain Initiative, and the broader Harvard neuroscience community on the Cambridge and Boston campuses. We particularly encourage applications from historically underrepresented groups, including women and minorities.
Candidates are required to have a doctorate or terminal degree by the expected start date.
Required application documents include a cover letter, CV, a statement of research interests, a teaching statement, and up to three representative papers. Candidates are also required to submit the names and contact information for three to five references, and the application is complete only when three letters have been submitted. We encourage candidates to apply by December 1, 2017, but will continue to review applications until the position is filled. Applicants will apply on-line at http://academicpositions.harvard.edu/postings/7915.
Harvard University is an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
About Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences
Engineering and applied sciences at Harvard has a long and distinguished history at Harvard, beginning with the creation of the Lawrence Scientific School in 1847 (named for donor Abbott Lawrence).
During the 19th and 20th centuries, the structure to support faculty and research in engineering applied sciences underwent several reorganizations (ranging from a graduate school, department (severa...l), and division) and names (from DEAP to DAS to DEAS).
In 2007, in recognition of the growing preeminence of engineering and applied sciences, the University transitioned the former Division of Engineering and Applied Sciences into a school.
Through collaboration with researchers from all parts of Harvard, other universities, and industry, the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) brings discovery and innovation directly to bear on improving human life and society in the 21st century.
In pursuing its aims, SEAS will grow, but will remain: a different kind of engineering program rooted in science, interdisciplinary in culture, and committed to embracing Harvard’s breadth and depth across the sciences and professions.
