The School of Mathematical Sciences Fudan University

Overview

The School
of Mathematical Science (SMS) of Fudan University, one of the most distinguished
and active institutions of mathematics in China, was founded by consolidating the
Department of Mathematics of Fudan University and the Institute of Mathematics of
Fudan University in 2005. The SMS consists of five Departments, i.e., Departments
of Pure Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Information & Computing Sciences, Mathematical
Finance & Control Theory, and Probability, Statistics & Actuarial Sciences, and
the Institute of Mathematics. Now, the SMS has approximately 100 permanent faculty
members, among which 48 are professors and 40 are associate professors with broad
research interests in the major fields of contemporary pure and applied mathematics.
The SMS is proud of having four academicians of Chinese Academy of Sciences: HU
Hesheng, LI Daqian, HONG Jiaxing, and CHEN Shuxing. In addition, the SMS has two
educational systems: one is the postgraduate program with about 350 postgraduate
students, and the other is the undergraduate program with over 750 undergraduate
students. The SMS also established a postdoctoral research station with about 20
positions of postdoctoral research fellow.

In the past six decades, led by
SU Buqing, CHEN Jiangong, and GU Chaohao, the world-renowned mathematicians, the
SMS has not only achieved an excellent research reputation in the community of mathematics
but also brought up numerous elites in various scientific,
technological, or industrial domains, including 14 academicians of Chinese Academy
of Sciences, 5 academicians of Chinese Academy of Engineering, and a large number
of scientists and engineers of great achievements. The SMS has become the First
Class Key Discipline of Mathematics in China since 2007. Particularly, in the China
Discipline Evaluation that took place in 2002,2007, and 2012, respectively, the
SMS ranked 2nd in the discipline of mathematics for three times. The SMS has also
earned international recognition such that it is amongst the list of top 75 institutions
of mathematics (first 3‰) all over the world according to the Essential Science
Indicators (ESI) published by ISI. In 2014, the SMS ranked 25th and 45th worldwide
according to the U.S. News Rankings and the QS World Universities Rankings, respectively.

Location & Facilities

The SMS is located in the East Main Building of Guang-Hua Tower in the Handan Campus
of Fudan University, which belongs to the northeast sub-center of Shanghai. It is
very convenient to reach and enjoys a favorable atmosphere for research and education
of mathematics. In addition to the setup of computer cluster of high performance,
the Mathematics Branch of Fudan Library is one of the finest mathematics libraries
in the nation that has an outstanding collection of mathematical monographs, research
journals, and textbooks.

Undergraduate Education

The
SMS has made persistent efforts to provide mathematical education of the highest
quality. It conducts excellent, demanding programs of undergraduate studies and
provides the students with solid and innovative training. The faculty members have
been sparing no effort to enhance the undergraduate teaching: several courses were
evaluated as the exquisite courses at the national or municipal levels. The SMS
also encourages students to participate in the Chinese Mathematics Competitions
as well as the Mathematical Contest in Modeling at different levels. Many undergraduate
students have achieved proud records in these competitions.

Postgraduate Education

The mathematical discipline of Fudan University is the first discipline in China
that was authorized by the Academic Degrees Committee of the State Council to confer
Ph.D. degrees in all the five sub-disciplines within mathematics, including Pure
Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Operational Research and Control Theory, Computational
Mathematics, and Probability & Statistics. Considerable efforts of teaching and
finance have been consistently placed on the postgraduate education. In addition
to a variety of advanced mathematical courses, students are strongly encouraged
to attend research seminars and colloquiums. The SMS provides a certain amount of
teaching assistantships and research fellowships for the postgraduate students.
Many of them also have the opportunities to visit or study for joint degree in oversea
universities from one month to two years owing to the internationalized educational
programs of the SMS and Fudan University.

Research

As the SMS has maintained a leading role in the development of mathematical sciences
in China, it always emphasizes scientific research as the first priority in its
development. The faculty engages in research in a wide range of areas from the fundamental
problems in mathematics to applications of mathematics in real-world systems. Many
faculty members have made achievements of great importance in directions of both
pure and applied mathematics, and won well-known prizes and honors for their significant
contributions, including the Nation’s Top Science and Technology Award to GU Chaohao
in 2009，the ICIAM Su Buchin Prize Award to LI Daqian in 2015, etc. The establishment
of the Shanghai Center for Mathematical Sciences (SCMS) in 2012 indicates a great
step in the development of the mathematical discipline of Fudan University. Together
with the SCMS, every year the SMS invites a large number of renowned mathematicians
and scientists all over world and provides various academic programs of mathematics
courses, seminars, workshops, and conferences of high standard.

Recruitment

The SMS now calls for applications to the positions of Full Professor, Associate
Professor, Young-Fellowship（青年研究员）and Associate Young-Fellowship (青年副研究员)[for YF
and AYF，a tenure-track (3+3 years) appointment after completing postdoc fellowship].
The applications in any areas of pure and applied mathematics, including statistics,
will be considered. It is certain that the annual salaries for the recruited members
are internationally competitive and commensurate with their qualifications. The
applicant who is interested in any position mentioned above should collect the materials
including a cover letter (e.g., AMS format cover letter), a Curriculum Vita with
a list of representative publications, and a research statement, and send them to
Mr. ZHOU Yue through the electronic mail listed below. The applicant also should
invite at least three FULL professors to write and send the recommendation letters
for her/him to Mr. ZHOU Yue directly.

For more information, should be in contact with Mr. ZHOU Yue
