Position description

The Mathematics Department at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) invites applications for an Assistant Professor in the area of Analysis (for instance, in the area of Partial Differential Equations). The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to the undergraduate and graduate degree programs, teach, mentor, and advise students at the graduate and undergraduate level individually and in the classroom, and undertake service obligations for the department and campus consistent with a ladder-rank faculty member. The successful candidate will also be expected to contribute to research and professional leadership, and must be able to work with students, faculty, and staff from a wide range of social and cultural backgrounds. We seek colleagues who will interact and collaborate with faculty from our department as well as build connections with researchers in other STEM departments on campus such as Physics or Applied Mathematics.

UC Santa Cruz is a Hispanic-Serving Institution and an Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander-Serving Institution with a high proportion of first-in-family undergraduate students. We welcome candidates who understand the barriers facing women and minoritized individuals who are underrepresented in higher education careers (as evidenced by life experiences and educational background), and who have experience in promoting equity and diversity with respect to teaching, mentoring, research, life experiences, or service consistent with our goal of building an equitable and diverse scholarly environment.

UCSC is committed to addressing the holistic needs of faculty. We also welcome applications from those who have had non-traditional career paths, who have taken time off for personal reasons, or who have achieved excellence in careers outside academia.

The chosen candidate will be expected to sign a statement representing that they are not the subject of any ongoing investigation or disciplinary proceeding at their current academic institution or place of employment, nor have they in the past ten years been formally disciplined at any academic institution/place of employment. In the event the candidate cannot make this representation, they will be expected to disclose in writing to the hiring Dean the circumstances surrounding any formal discipline that they have received, as well as any current or ongoing investigation or disciplinary process of which they are the subject. (Note that discipline includes a negotiated settlement agreement to resolve a matter related to substantiated misconduct.)
