The John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) at Harvard University seeks applicants for a position at either the tenure-track or tenured rank in the area of Applied Mathematics, with an expected start date of July 1, 2022. We welcome candidates in any area of applied mathematics broadly defined, including interfaces with all areas of computational sciences, engineering, physics, biology, earth and planetary sciences, medicine, economics and the social sciences.

We are seeking candidates with a record of computational or theoretical innovation, a vision for an original research program, and an interest in working collaboratively with scientists across multiple disciplines at the University. Candidates should have enthusiasm for teaching both graduate and undergraduate courses in applied mathematics, computational science and allied fields. We particularly encourage applications from historically underrepresented groups, including women and minorities.

The Applied Mathematics program at SEAS benefits from outstanding undergraduate and graduate students, and being situated in a highly interdisciplinary environment. The program is highly synergistic with complementary efforts at Harvard in Physics, Earth and Planetary Sciences, and a number of cross-disciplinary initiatives such as the Center for Mathematical Sciences and Applications, Quantum Computing Initiative,the Quantitative Biology Initiative, Data Science Initiative, the Institute for Applied Computational Science, the Materials Research Science and Engineering Research Center, and the Center for Brain Science. We seek to build a mathematical sciences community in which the whole is greater than the sum of the parts, complementing our undergraduate concentration that is among the top 5 majors at Harvard College. Information about current faculty, research, and educational programs in SEAS is available at 

A doctorate or terminal degree in Applied Mathematics or an allied field such as Computational Sciences, Physics, Mathematics or Engineering is required by the expected start date.

Required application documents include a cover letter, CV, a statement of research interests, a teaching/advising statement (describing teaching philosophy and practices), and up to three representative papers. In addition, we ask for a statement describing efforts to encourage diversity, inclusion, and belonging, including past, current, and anticipated future contributions in these areas. 

Candidates for a tenure-track position are also required to submit names and contact information of 3-5 referees, and the application is considered complete only when at least three letters have been received. At least one letter must come from someone who has not served as the candidate’s undergraduate, graduate, or postdoctoral advisor.

We encourage candidates to apply by December 15, 2021, but will continue to review applications until the position is filled. Applicants can apply online at
