Associate Director and Tenured Faculty Member, DIMACS Center, Rutgers University


The DIMACS Center at Rutgers University (dimacs.rutgers.edu) seeks applications for the position of Associate Director. This is a faculty position with tenure at the Associate or Full Professor level in an appropriate department such as Computer Science, Mathematics, or Statistics. The Associate Director will be expected to play a leadership role in organizing DIMACS activities, and in developing new programs, seeking funding for them, and reporting on them. The Associate Director will also be expected to maintain a research program, teach (with a limited load), and play a role in their department. Candidates must have a strong research record suitable for a tenured appointment and leadership position at the University in a field related to DIMACS' work, for example, discrete mathematics, theoretical computer science, operations research, connections of dm/tcs to statistics, or applications of dm/tcs to other areas of science and/or engineering. The candidate should demonstrate breadth of scientific interests and concern for teaching at multiple levels. Since the position involves significant grant related activity, a successful record of grant funding is strongly preferred. The successful candidate should express interest in assuming directorship of DIMACS at an appropriate time in the future.

For further information, please contact Professor David Madigan, Chair of the Search Committee (dmadigan@rutgers.edu). Applications should include a CV and letters of recommendation and should be sent electronically to Christine Spassione (spassion@dimacs.rutgers.edu). Applications will be considered as they are received until December 5, but later applications will be considered if the position has not been filled.

Inquiries or expressions of interest can be directed to any members of the search committee: David Madigan (Rutgers) (chair), Tamra Carpenter (Telcordia Technologies), Steve Fortune (Bell Labs), Steve Greenfield (Rutgers), Haym Hirsh (Rutgers), David Johnson (AT&T Labs), Fred Roberts (Rutgers).

Rutgers University is an equal opportunity affirmative action employer.
