Tenure Track Position

The Department of Mathematics of Fordham University invites applications, subject to final budgetary approval, for one or more tenure track Assistant Professorships to be located at our Rose Hill campus and to begin in the fall of 2020.

We seek candidates who have demonstrated success in undergraduate teaching and who have established an active and productive research program. Candidates in all areas of pure and applied mathematics are encouraged to apply. We are especially interested in candidates who can increase the diversity of our faculty and curriculum, whose specialties give promise of leading to joint research projects with our current faculty, who have applied their work in collaborations with researchers in non-mathematical disciplines or who can strengthen our joint Mathematics/Computer Science major. Inquiries may be addressed by email to

Applications must be submitted online through MathJobs.Org at and should include a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, research and teaching statements, and four letters of recommendation, at least one of which addresses teaching experience. In exceptional circumstances, letters of recommendation only may be mailed to:
    Staffing Committee
    Mathematics Department
    Fordham University
    441 E. Fordham Rd.
    Bronx, NY 10458.

To receive fullest consideration, applications should be complete by November 15th, but applications will be reviewed until the position is filled.

Position specific desiderata for candidates:

Fordham has recently undergone a major renewal of its academic leadership and of its strategic planning processes. Both of these transformations have led to a heightened urgency to strengthen the University's interdisciplinary offerings. The Mathematics department has long standing joint programs with our Physics and Economics departments and recently added a joint major with Computer Science that is growing rapidly.

Our long standing strategy for building a strong department is to consider strong candidates in all specialties for every position. However, in these searches, we are particularly interested in applicants whose work can help us strengthen the new Mathematics/Computer Science major or build new bridges to other disciplines.
