Erin Moriarty Wolf Chambers
Postdoc positions available
I have a openings for two postdoc positions, both starting in fall 2019:
- One is flexible in
focus, fitting under the broad categories of computational topology, computational geometry, algorithms and/or graph theory; please see my publications page and get in touch if you see a common area of interest! The duration is 12 months, with funding available to extend for a second year.
- The other is focused on a computational topology project in shape simplification, jointly supervised by Dr. David Letscher. The project will focus on designing and implementing algorithms that utilitize persistent homology as well as other tools from computational topology and geometry; this algorithms will be applied primarily to data sets collected from plant root systems. This is funded for 12 months by NSF grant #1759807, with the possibility of extending for a second year.
Saint Louis University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. All qualified candidates will receive consideration for the position applied for without regard to race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, military/veteran status, gender identity, or other non-merit factors.
In order to apply for either position, please email me: (1) a cover level indicating why you are interested in and a good fit for the position, (2) a CV, (3) a research statement, and (4) the names of 2-3 references that I can contact for a letter of recommendation.
I am a Professor in the Department of
Computer Science at Saint Louis
University; my research is supported in part by funding from the National Science Foundation.
I currently serve on the Computational Geometry Steering
Committee, as an editor for the
Journal of Computational Geometry, and on the newly formed
Ad hoc committee to combat harassment and discrimination
in the Theory of Computing community.
I also serve on the steering committees for the Women
in Computational Topology and Women in Shape
Analysis networks, and am active in several committees for the AWM project to
grow these research networks.
I teach computer science with the occasional math class, and research problems
in computational topology and geometry, as well as combinatorics and
combinatorial algorithms. I am also active in research projects to support and
improve the culture and climate in comptuer science and mathematics, as well as
to try to improve broader STEM educational experiences at all levels.
Please check my list of publications for more details.
I'm married to Jeff Chambers; we have three beautiful and amazing children,
Grace, Edwin, and Jesse,
and a cat named Hercules Mulligan.
In my spare time,
I like to read, watch various TV shows (mostly sci-fi and fantasy), and drink tea.
