advantage. We are looking for applicants with an enthusiasm for
teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate level, and for the
supervision of graduate students.
The Department of Applied Mathematics has 22 regular faculty and
two lecturers. Research interests include scientific computing,
control theory, differential equations and dynamical systems, fluid
dynamics, mathematical biology and medicine, and mathematical
physics. The department has a substantial graduate program with
over 70 graduate students pursuing Masters or PhD degrees, and
strong undergraduate programs in applied mathematics and
mathematical physics. More information about the department can be
found at http://math.uwaterloo.ca/applied-mathematics/.
Candidates interested in this position should have a PhD or
equivalent in Applied Mathematics, or related field. Appointment at
the Assistant Professor level is preferred, but extraordinarily
