The Department of Mathematics offers a variety of interdisciplinary accelerated 5-year BS/MS programs! Transition to the graduate program happens during the 4th year. Your Akron Guarantee Scholarship can be used in the first 4 years to cover both undergraduate and graduate expenses, and the Department has graduate assistantships available for the 5th year. Planning early is the key to success for these programs; for more information, visit 5-year Master's or contact Dr. Pat Wilber, Graduate Coordinator of the Math Department, at email@example.com.
The top 10 best jobs of 2018 and 2017 include mathematician, operations research analyst, actuary, statistician and one of the best paid but still most in demand for 2017: data scientist. Our department is part of the brand-new UA data science program!

Tenure Track Assistant Professor Position
The Department of Mathematics at The University of Akron invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in any application-oriented area of Mathematics that enhances the existing strengths of the department and the university. The possible areas include but are not limited to Applied Mathematics, Applied Analysis, Scientific Computing, Mathematics of Materials, Mathematical Biology, and Mathematics of Data Science. The job responsibilities include research and teaching at the university level. Preference will be given to candidates with a potential for collaboration with the members of the Department or across campus. Salary is commensurate with background and experience. Startup funds are available.
Applicants must possess a Ph.D. Degree in Mathematics or a closely related field by the time of employment and are expected to provide evidence of an active research program as well as evidence of teaching experience and interest in directing student research. Priority will be given to candidates with postdoctoral experience and demonstrated interest in pursuing external funding.
The department offers Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Applied Mathematics as well as an accelerated 5-year BS/MS program. Additional information about the department can be found at http://www.math.uakron.edu/.
The University of Akron is a state-assisted metropolitan university with approximately 19,000 students. The university is well-known for its world-class Polymer Science program as well as widely recognized departments in engineering, science, business, and education.
Applicants should submit an application letter, AMS cover sheet, curriculum vitae, statement of research interests, unofficial copy of graduate transcripts, and three letters of recommendation, at least one of which should address teaching.
Inquiries can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Review of completed applications will begin on November 15, 2019 and continue until the position is filled.

...reaches realistic solutions using abstract tools. We can create mathematical models at any scale — electrons, ecosystems, or economies. We can design new molecules for medicines and materials. We can optimize for efficient communication and secure networking. We can decode a genome and decipher its history. We can discover the best environmental and financial options.
Applied mathematicians use mathematics to solve problems in science and engineering. We set up systems of differential and functional equations, solve them directly or approximately via programming, and then apply the practical results. Theoretical mathematicians explore beyond the physical models. We create new mathematics by uncovering logical structures, geometries, patterns and symmetries.
With a degree in mathematics or applied mathematics you can work in virtually any field— in the public, academic and industrial sectors. Math majors have all the skills employers want!
The Math Department's Eleventh Annual Poster Session will be held on Wednesday 30 November. It will feature over 40 student research projects in a variety of mathematical areas.
