The Department of Computational Applied Mathematics and Operations Research (CMOR) at Rice University in Houston, Texas, seeks outstanding candidates for two positions aligned with its expansion in computational and applied mathematics. We envision the candidates to work in the broad area of computational and applied mathematics, in application areas such as medicine, energy, data science, molecular nanotechnology, materials & quantum physics, quantum computing, aerospace, and others (https://engineering.rice.edu/research-faculty/research-focus-areas). We expect to hire both positions at the rank of tenure-track assistant professor; however, we will consider exceptional candidates at the rank of associate professor.

Rice University is a private, comprehensive research university located in the heart of the dynamic Museum District in Houston, Texas, the most diverse city in the country. Rice offers undergraduate and graduate degrees across eight schools and has a student body of approximately 4,000 undergraduate and 3,000 graduate students. It consistently ranks among the top 20 national universities and the top 10 in undergraduate teaching (US News & World Report); its endowment ranks among the top 20 US universities.

CMOR is part of the George R. Brown School of Engineering, which ranks among the top 20 undergraduate engineering programs (US News & World Report). CMOR ranks #14 in applied math programs (US News & World Report). More information about the Department can be found at https://cmor.rice.edu. We encourage everyone to apply, especially those individuals who have been historically underrepresented in academia: people of color, LGBTQI+ people, women, people with disabilities, veterans, and people of any age or family status. We strive to actively counter prejudice and to create a working environment that is inclusive and equitable.


The successful applicant will be required to teach undergraduate and graduate courses and build a successful research program. Successful candidates will have exceptional research potential along with a strong commitment to teaching, advising, and mentoring undergraduate and graduate students from diverse backgrounds. The candidates must have a Ph.D. by July 1, 2023. Teaching experience at the university level will be viewed as an advantage.

Applicants should also arrange for three recommendation letters. Applications must be made through: apply.interfolio.com/112731. To receive full consideration, the complete application must be received by October 15, 2022, but the committee may consider applications filed after that date. Employment will begin July 1, 2023.
