Description of Work
The mission of the Department of Mathematics is to extend the frontiers of
mathematical knowledge and the ways it is used in the real world, to
disseminate that knowledge and train the next generation of teachers and
researchers, as well as those choosing careers with industry or government.
The Department is committed to building and nourishing interaction with other
units across campus using mathematics, institutes and industries in the
research triangle, across the state and the nation. The Department maintains a
strong research program as well as a comprehensive educational program. An
active, healthy research environment is essential for the training of graduate
students and enlivens the teaching of undergraduate courses, bringing students
into contact with new and relevant mathematics and creating a population with
the necessary mathematical skills and appreciation, encouraging some to join
the next generation of researchers and educators. The fundamental importance
of education in mathematics is reflected in the General College curriculum's
foundations and connections requirements in quantitative methods. The
Department is strongly committed to making its programs open and accessible to
members of groups historically underrepresented in the sciences. Within the
Department, the faculty in applied mathematics are members of the Carolina
Center for Interdisciplinary Applied Mathematics (CCIAM). CCIAM faculty
routinely collaborate with faculty across the UNC campus, serve on graduate
student committees from many departments, operate a major Fluids Laboratory
jointly with Marine Sciences, a biofluids laboratory, and a significant
computer laboratory. Many UNC undergraduates participate in research
experiences with CCIAM faculty, either for credit or for a stipend. The CCIAM
faculty are responsible for the curriculum in the Graduate Applied Mathematics
track in Mathematics, and for mentoring graduate students in the program.
This position will assist in medical image analysis and in preparing and
submitting documentation to the university and external funding agencies,
primarily as related to human subjects research.
