The Computing and Mathematical Sciences (CMS) Department at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) invites applications for tenure-track faculty positions in all areas of applied mathematics, computer science, and related disciplines.
Areas of interest include (but are not limited to) algorithms, data assimilation and inverse problems, dynamical systems and control, geometry, machine learning, mathematics of data science, networks and graphs, numerical linear algebra, optimization, partial differential equations, probability, scientific computing, statistics, stochastic modeling, and uncertainty quantification. Application foci include computational physical and life sciences, distributed systems, economics, graphics, quantum computing, and robotics and autonomous systems. The CMS Department is part of the Division of Engineering and Applied Science (EAS), comprising researchers working in and between the fields of aerospace, civil, electrical, environmental, mechanical, and medical engineering, as well as materials science and applied physics. The Institute as a whole represents the full range of research in biology, chemistry, engineering, physics, and the social sciences.
A commitment to world-class research, as well as high-quality teaching and mentoring, is expected, and appointment as an assistant professor is contingent upon the completion of a PhD degree in applied mathematics, computer science, engineering, or the sciences. The initial appointment at the assistant professor level is four years and is contingent upon completion of a PhD degree. Reappointment beyond the initial term is contingent upon successful review conducted prior to the commencement of the fourth year.
Applications will be reviewed beginning 15 November 2019 but all applications received before 15 January 2020 will receive full consideration.

Caltech is a world-renowned science and engineering Institute that marshals some of the world's brightest minds and most innovative tools to address fundamental scientific questions and pressing societal challenges. Caltech's extraordinary faculty and students are expanding our understanding of the universe and inventing the technologies of the future, with research interests from quantum science and engineering to bioinformatics and the nature of life itself, from human behavior and economics to energy and sustainability.
Caltech is small but prizes excellence and ambition. The contributions of Caltech's faculty and alumni have earned national and international recognition, including 35 Nobel Prizes. The Institute manages the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) for NASA, sending probes to explore the planets of our solar system and quantify changes on our home planet; owns and operates large-scale research facilities such as the Seismological Laboratory and a global network of astronomical observatories, including the Palomar and W. M. Keck Observatories; and cofounded and comanages LIGO, which, in 2016, observed gravitational waves for the first time.
The Institute has one of t...he nation's lowest student-to-faculty ratios, with 300 professorial faculty members offering a rigorous curriculum and access to varied learning opportunities and hands-on research to approximately 1,000 undergraduates and 1,250 graduate students. Caltech is an independent, privately supported institution with a 124-acre campus located in Pasadena, California.
