SEACOAST REGIONAL MATHCOUNTS COMPETITION

A competition bringing together bright, high-achieving math students, which includes both a written exam and a live “bee” style contest. Middle school Mathletes® race against the clock and each other to answer challenging mathematical questions. MATHCOUNTS programs help challenge and cultivate excellence in students who are talented in math, and help inspire curiosity and build self-confidence in students who are intimidated by math. The Seacoast Regional Competition will be held this Saturday, February 8 at the University of New Hampshire's Spaulding Life Sciences Center.

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics invites applications for two tenure-track faculty positions in statistics / data science, one at the assistant professor level, and one at open rank, starting in the fall semester of 2020. The successful candidates will have an earned doctorate in statistics, or a discipline closely related to data science or statistics, including applied mathematics and computer science. We seek applicants who have demonstrated the ability to teach statistics courses at all levels ​to students from a variety of backgrounds. Applicants are expected to be committed to interdisciplinary research through engagement with the numerous research institutes on campus, such as NH BioMade an NSF-funded, interdisciplinary research project focused on biomaterials manufacturing and design.
