Open Positions

The Department is very pleased to announce searches for four tenure-track Assistant Professor positions and four Lecturer positions to be filled in 2018.

Assistant Professor

The Assistant Professor positions are open to all areas in Mathematics and begin in August 2018. These positions are part of an exciting university wide initiative to further our status as one of the very best research universities in the nation.  Over the past three years 115 faculty were hired as part of UF’s designation as a preeminent university by the Florida Legislature. The university plans to add 500 faculty over the next few years to enhance teaching and research. The successful candidate will join a vibrant research department with representation across a full range of pure and applied mathematics.​

The Lecturer positions are part of an initiative to modernize and improve lower-division instruction. These non-tenure-track renewable positions can begin as  early as January, 2018. Candidates must have substantial interest in STEM education reform; in particular; the department seeks to attract individuals with experience in active learning environments such as flipped classrooms.  Lecturers play a vital role in our dynamic instructional enterprise by bringing subject expertise and commitment to excellence in teaching to bear in educating our exceptional undergraduates.

PhD alumni at the NSA

Dr. Aziza Jefferson, who received her PhD under Prof. Vatter in 2015, has been featured in an article in the National Security Agencies news. While a UF grad student she was an intern in the NSA’s Summer Program for Operations Research Technology (SPORT). “Once in the internship I decided to return full time because I found that I could truly help other people by solving interesting problems. I am not only able to use my mathematical skills, but engage my interests in other fields as well.”

Math professors in the news

A profile of Prof. Maia Martcheva has appeared in the CLAS Newsletter. Prof Martcheva  is a mathematical biologist and holds a primary position in the Department of Mathematics and is affiliated with the Department of Biology. Her primary interest is in mathematical epidemiology and has NSF supported projects studying Rift Valley fever, Zika, Avian flu and other communicable diseases.

A recent article by Assistant Professor Ngonghala on the ecology of rural poverty has been featured in several major science news outlets. His paper, entitled  “General ecological models for human subsistence, health and poverty”, is discussed in detail in the on-line versions of both Science and Nature, two of the most prominent scientific journals. For the non-experts there is also an excellent profile in the UF News.

Math major Diego Rojas wins first place

Mathematics major and UF McNair Scholar Diego Rojas was awarded first place in the Physical Science category (and $500) for his talk on “Computability, randomness, and differentiability of random continuous functions”, presented at the SAEOPP McNair Scholars Conference in Atlanta, GA, June 23, 2016. Rojas is mentored by Professor Douglas Cenzer.
