DIMACS, the Center for Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science, based at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey, USA, seeks a Deputy Director of the Center who would also serve as an Associate or Full Professor in a Rutgers department. Founded in 1989, DIMACS is a thriving consortium of seven universities and six companies. Its mission is to conduct research, catalyze research, and develop educational programs in the computational and mathematical sciences, including artificial intelligence, computing theory (algorithms, combinatorics, complexity), data science, discrete mathematics (geometry, graph theory), machine learning, modeling, optimization, and privacy. Activities often address applications in biology, cyber & physical security, economics, engineering, epidemiology, and sustainability, as well as topics in computer science and math education. The Deputy Director will co-lead the scientific, educational, financial, and administrative aspects of the Center; help guide its vision; further its interdisciplinary traditions; write grants and raise funds; and interact with initiatives across Rutgers and other partners, including DIMACS’s DHS center of excellence. DIMACS has excelled at catalyzing new research and adapting to its partners’ interests; the Deputy Director will contribute leadership in determining such new directions. The Deputy Director will serve a five-year (renewable) term at DIMACS and engage in research, teaching, and service in their home department. The candidate must have a Ph.D. and a strong record of research, academic service, and teaching ability suitable for a tenured faculty appointment in a field such as computer science, mathematics, operations research, or statistics. The ideal candidate’s research will connect to DIMACS’s roots in theoretical computer science and discrete mathematics, while branching to other areas, such as data science, AI, and machine learning. The candidate should have wide interests and demonstrated leadership abilities. A successful record of grant funding is preferred. Rutgers, located 50 minutes from New York City by train and within easy reach of Princeton and Philadelphia, is the oldest, largest, and top-ranked public university in the New York/New Jersey metropolitan area. The region features excellent public schools and opportunities to collaborate with corporate research labs, some of which are DIMACS partners. Fostering diversity and inclusion is part of DIMACS’s culture and mission. We encourage candidates from communities currently underrepresented in the computational and mathematical sciences, including women, people of color, individuals with disabilities, and candidates with non-traditional career paths.
