Faculty Members (Mathematics)

Singapore University of Technology and Design
Job Description: 

The Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD), established in collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), is seeking exceptional faculty members at all ranks (tenure-track and tenured, including senior faculty) in the areas of mathematics. They will be embedded in the pillar of Engineering Systems and Design.

SUTD is characterized by a breadth of intellectual perspectives (the “university”), a focus on engineering foundations (“technology”) and an emphasis on innovation and creativity (design). The University’s programs are based on four pillars, each leading to a separate degree program, with Engineering Systems and Design one of the four.

The faculty in Engineering Systems and Design is growing rapidly (10 faculty members were hired in the past year) with a steady-state target of over 70 faculty members, making it one of the largest such programs in the world.

MIT’s multi-faceted collaboration with SUTD includes curriculum development and initial course deployment, faculty and student recruiting, mentoring, and career development, and collaboration on joint research projects, through a major new international design centre, funding opportunities, and student exchanges. A select group of newly hired SUTD faculty will spend up to one year at MIT in a specially tailored program for professional development and collaboration.

Professor Thomas Magnanti, former Dean of Engineering at MIT (and former President of INFORMS), is the Founding President of SUTD. Saif Benjaafar, Distinguished McKnight University Professor and former Director of Industrial & Systems Engineering at the University of Minnesota, is the Founding Head of Pillar of Engineering Systems and Design.

We seek individuals with an earned doctorate (or nearing completion) in mathematics or related fields. All areas of mathematics will be considered, but a preference will be given to individuals who ready to interact with colleagues who are active in applied fields, such as operations research, probability and statistics, game theory, economics, and network science, among others.

The successful candidate will be expected to teach courses in calculus, linear algebra, differential equations, discrete math, real analysis, and probability.

Applicants should have a strong commitment to teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels, to mentoring and advising of undergraduate and graduate students, and to developing and maintaining an active research program. Successful candidates can look forward to internationally competitive remuneration, attractive research startup packages and grant opportunities, and assistance for relocation to Singapore.

Candidates should submit a letter of interest, a CV, sample publications, statements of research and teaching interests, and three letters of reference. Applications are being accepted online at www.sutd.edu.sg/careers.htm and review of applications is ongoing. Additional information about the university and the engineering systems and design pillar can be found at www.sutd.edu.sg.

Inquiries about the position can be directed to Professor Marco Scarsini (marco_scarsini@sutd.edu.sg)
