The research of our faculty offers opportunity to work on interesting mathematical and scientifically challenging problems and to obtain training that will prepare you both for career in academic institution or in industrial research environment. Broadly speaking the department has active research programs in Applied and Computational Mathematics, Analysis, Discrete Mathematics and Probability. For more details please visit the departmental research pages which will also help you connect with relevant faculty members.
Our graduates have gone to research-oriented postdoctoral positions at institutions such as Oxford University, Caltech, MIT, NYU, UC Santa Barbara, the University of Arizona, and the University of Minnesota. After their postdoc positions, many of them continue to
pursue academic careers and hold tenure-track/tenured positions in the
US and around the world. Many of our graduates also have established
very successful career paths in industry, government labs and research
centers. They have taken positions in high Tech companies, such
as Boeing, Merck, Microsoft, Google, Amazon, investment banks such as
Barclays, JP Morgan Chase, Schonfeld Securities LLC, as well as in the
government laboratories and research centers such as NIST, the Fred
Hutchinson Cancer Research, National Security Agency.

If you are interested in visiting the campus and meeting with some of our faculty, please contact Ms Deb See. A great opportunity to see the research of our graduate students is the Winter Research Symposium that is held on the first Friday of Spring semester.
We are located centrally in the main campus of the University of Delaware in the city of Newark, Delaware, with easy access to Philadelphia, Baltimore and New York. The closest airport is Philadelphia International Airport. For further exploration, you can look at campus and local area maps, at Driving Directions, at UD housing options, and at the City/UD Town & Gown relationship. The department is primarily located in Ewing Hall, where all faculty are located and you will share an office with other graduate students, and have your own workstation with fast internet access.
