The University of Oklahoma is looking to hire a 1-year visiting faculty member in Geometry and Topology for the 2019-20 academic year. Preference will be given to candidates who work in Riemannian geometry but strong candidates from all areas of Geometry and Topology are encouraged to apply. We are seeking to expand upon the strengths of our Geometry and Topology group. In addition to this position, we are in the process of recruiting for two tenure-track positions in Geometry and Topology, one of which is intended to open new horizons in mathematical research especially bridging the gap between topology/geometry and data science. Normal duties consist of teaching two courses per semester, conducting research, and rendering service to the department and the profession.
For full consideration, applicants should send a completed AMS cover sheet, curriculum vitae, a description of current and planned research, a statement of teaching experience and philosophy, and have three letters of recommendation (at least one of which must address the applicant's teaching experience and proficiency). Applicants are encouraged to submit these materials through MathJobs. However, they may also be mailed to:
Screening of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is closed on MathJobs.
