The Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering (HWCOE) at the University of Florida (UF) invites applications for a twelve-month, time-limited, full-time non-tenure-track faculty position at the rank of Research Assistant Scientist in the Department of Computer and Information Sciences and Engineering. Initial appointment will be for one year with annual re-appointments based on performance and available funding.
We are seeking applicants in scientific computing/applied mathematics, or applied category theory. Applicants should have experience in applied scientific computing or applied category theory and be willing to learn the other.
In addition to having a doctorate degree in computer science, mathematics, or a related science or engineering discipline, the applicant must possess a strong academic background and demonstrate potential for research excellence. Successful candidates will be expected to assist in the development and sustainment of an externally funded research program, develop a high-quality publication record, and assist in the supervision of Ph.D. students. Opportunities for teaching both undergraduate and graduate courses in CISE are available to interested candidates.
This position will primarily support research in the Algebraic Julia ecosystem of open-source software for applied category theory and its application to scientific computing. Information about the project can be found at https://algebraicjulia.org/. Technical skills expected include numerical methods, modeling and simulation, software development or computer algebra. Applicants with a mathematics, science, or engineering background will be expected to know analogous material from their discipline. The research work will include significant software development and project management. Experience with large government research programs such as NSF, NIH, DARPA, ONR, or AFOSR programs is beneficial.
UF CISE offers BS, MS, and PhD degrees. We have approximately 2400 undergraduate students and 600 graduate students.
There are also outstanding opportunities for interdisciplinary work across the UF campus. More information about the department can be found at https://www.cise.ufl.edu.
