The Mathematics Department of Fordham University seeks to ﬁll a Tenure Track
Assistant Professorship at its Lincoln Center campus, starting August 1, 2014.
Candidates from all countries who are completing a post-doctoral position in pure or applied mathematics or in statistics
are encouraged to apply. An active and productive research program and a record of success in undergraduate teaching are essential.
We are especially interested in those who have applied their work in collaborations with researchers in non-mathematical disciplines,
whose specialties give promise of leading to research collaborations with our permanent faculty, or who have experience in mentor-
ing undergraduate research. Our faculty’s specialties (followed in parentheses by areas of particular interest) include: number theory
(arithmetic geometry, modular forms, diophantine equations), algebraic geometry (moduli of curves, geometric invariant theory, com-
putational algebraic geometry), PDE (biological ﬂuid dynamics, geometry of PDEs), diﬀerential geometry (harmonic maps, minimal
surfaces, geometry of integrable systems), complex analysis (quasi-conformal mappings, dynamical systems), algebraic topology (ho-
motopy theory, homological algebra), metric geometry (geometric measure theory), algebra (symbolic computation, abelian groups),
stochastic analysis (numerical methods).
Fordham’s educational mission is centered on a tradition of cura personalis, respect and care for the entire person. To
tailor instruction to this tradition, classes are small (at most 25 students in courses in the Mathematics major and 35 in service
courses). The normal load is 7.5 contact hours per semester (“3-2”) with at most 2 preparations. We thus expect that the number of
hours which the candidate will devote to teaching will be comparable to that in similar junior positions in “2-2” departments. The
Department oﬀers B.Sc. and B.A. degrees in Mathematics, a joint major in Mathematics and Economics, and participates in a 5-year
Cooperative Program in Engineering (in collaboration with the departments of Physics and Chemistry and with Columbia and Case
Fordham’s 85 acre Rose Hill campus is located 20 minutes by train from Grand Central in the north Bronx. Adjacent to
the 285 acre New York Botanical Garden, the 265 acre Bronx Zoo and Belmont shopping district which is the Bronx’s “Little Italy”,
Rose Hill is classic “gown” campus, its stately Gothic stone architecture surrounded by acres of well kept lawns and gardens and
meandering trellised walks. Fordham’s “town” campus, Lincoln Center, is located in midtown Manhattan adjacent to the world renown
Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts and a block from Columbus Circle and Central Park. In the summer of 2014, the University
will open the ﬁrst stage of planned expansion of Lincoln Center that will add 1.5 million sq. ft of new space. The University operates
a ﬂeet of express vans that connect the two campuses in 30 minutes and operate year-round 18-22 hours a day.
Mathematics in the New York area
New York city is one of the most important mathematical centers in the United States.
Columbia University, New York University and the City University of New York are all located within 30 minutes of Fordham. Rutgers
and Stony Brook can be reached in just under an hour by car or train and Princeton and Yale in just over an hour. The Department
is generally able to arrange teaching schedules to allow faculty to attend seminars and courses in their specialty at these area
institutions, and many members of the department actively collaborate with their faculty.
