Faculty Positions in Combinatorics and Optimization

The Department of Combinatorics and Optimization at the University of Waterloo invites applications for several tenure-track faculty positions.
There are competitions for one or more positions in each of continuous optimization and cryptography. There is also a competition for positions in any of the six main research areas covered by the department: algebraic combinatorics, combinatorial optimization, continuous optimization, cryptography, graph theory, and quantum computing. Finally, there is a competition for positions in operations research. The text of the individual advertisements can be found at the website of the department.

While the intention is to make appointments at the rank of Assistant Professor, applications for more senior positions will be considered. A Ph.D. degree and evidence of excellence in research and teaching are required. Successful applicants are expected to maintain an active program of research, to attract and supervise graduate students, and to participate in undergraduate and graduate teaching.

Salary will depend on the candidate's qualifications.


Applications should include a curriculum vitae and up to three selected reprints/preprints. In addition, at least three (3) reference letters should be submitted. Applications and reference letters should be sent to combopt@math.uwaterloo.ca or to:

Bill Cunningham, Chair
Department of Combinatorics and Optimization

Closing date for receipt of applications is December 10, 2007.

The University of Waterloo encourages applications from all qualified individuals, including women, members of visible minorities, native peoples, and persons with disabilities.
