The School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences, part of The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, invites applications for two Presidential Postdoctoral Fellow positions, with an anticipated start in the 2022-2023 academic year. Fellows will conduct research in mathematical biology, with a faculty mentor in the School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences.
The Fellows’ activities will include production of relevant scholarly products, contributions to grant proposals, participation in the School’s seminars, teaching up to two courses per year, and mentoring of students. Fellows will bring life experiences and expertise that promote diverse representation in the mathematical sciences. With grants from the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, Department of Defense, National Security Agency and more, our mathematics and statistical sciences faculty are leading game-changing research, training and education projects. In particular, mathematical biology at ASU has a world-class reputation in mathematical ecology, epidemiology, neuroscience and medicine.
The postdoctoral scholars selected will join a cohort of 10-15 other postdoctoral scholars at ASU as part of the Presidential Postdoctoral Fellowship Program. The goal of the program is to support the career development of outstanding Ph.D. recipients with great potential for advancing the ASU Charter into a future tenure track appointment at ASU. The program seeks applicants whose professional preparedness, experience, and accomplishments are informed by experiences working with and within groups historically underrepresented in higher education in the United States. Where pools of qualified applicants are strong, priority will be given to applicants who demonstrate, through prior actions and achievements, intentional and actioned commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Examples of such contributions are research or creative activity focused on empowering underserved populations; teaching, mentorship, and service that increases equitable access; and inclusion in fields where historically excluded populations are underrepresented. The School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences has committed to provide individualized mentorship and career development to ensure each candidate is well prepared to succeed in a future tenure track appointment. Career development and community building will also occur through programmatic support at the ASU Graduate College’s Postdoctoral Affairs Office.
