Tenure Track Position, Geometrical Functional Analysis
The Department of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences at the University
of Alberta invites applications for a tenure track position in the area of
Geometrical Functional Analysis. We primarily seek candidates at the
Assistant Professor level, but exceptional candidates at a more senior
level will be considered.
The successful candidate will have established accomplishments and
outstanding promise in research, as well as a strong commitment to
graduate and undergraduate teaching. Candidates must hold a PhD
degree. We offer an excellent research environment with a normal
teaching load of three courses per year. A fit with some of the
existing research being presently conducted in the Department is an
asset. For more information about the Department, please visit our
website at http://www.math.ualberta.ca/.
We are looking for specialists in any of the areas of geometric functional
analysis including asymptotic theory of normed spaces and high-dimensional
convex geometry, related probabilistic methods, geometric inequalities and
concentration inequalities, and related discrete mathematics aspects.
Current research strengths in the analysis group of the Department include
asymptotic geometric analysis, abstract harmonic analysis, Banach spaces,
Banach algebras and Banach lattices, operator theory, approximation
theory, Fourier and wavelet analysis.
Alberta is one of the leading Mathematics Departments in Canada and has
strong connections with other mathematical institutes, such as the Pacific
Institute for the Mathematical Sciences (PIMS), Mathematics of Information
Technology and Complex Systems (MITACS), and the Banff International
Research Station (BIRS).
Applications should include a curriculum vitae, a research statement, a
teaching profile outlining experience and/or interests, and at least three
confidential letters of reference.
The closing date for applications is November 16, 2007, or until a
suitable candidate is found. Early applications are encouraged.
