Mathematics Department Chair

The Mathematics Department at the University of Colorado at Denver invites applications and nominations for the positions of Professor and Chair; the appointments begin on July 1, 2002. The faculty has 22 full-time members whose research and teaching cover a wide range of areas: computational and engineering mathematics, discrete mathematics, finite geometry, and combinatorics, operations research and optimization, probability and statistics.

The Chair will be a person of vision who brings excellence in research and teaching, commensurate with the rank of (full) Professor, and demonstrated success in administration. In addition, he or she should have a commitment to integrating the Department's teaching and research missions at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

The Department is in the third year of a five-year Center of Excellence grant from the State, the highest and most generously funded award that the state confers on academic programs. The Department is also a major participant in the Center for Computational Mathematics and the newly created Center for Computational Biology. The Chair will possess the scholarship and leadership that will enable the Department to build on these opportunities and achieve a new level of national and international recognition.

CU-Denver, located in the heart of thriving downtown Denver, is the urban campus of the University of Colorado system. Roughly half of CU-Denver's 11,000 students are in graduate or professional programs. The Department has approximately 70 M.S. and Ph.D. students, and 100 undergraduate mathematics majors. The quality of life in Denver is exceptionally high with both the cultural benefits of a large city and endless mountain recreation.

Applications must include a letter of intent; full curriculum vita; statement outlining personal strengths and leadership philosophy; name, address, phone, and email of three references; and reprints of five recent publications. Review of applications will begin on January 15, 2001, and will be ongoing.
