GEORGIA STATE UNIVERSITY invites applications for one tenure track appointment in actuarial science effective Fall 2018 in the Department of Risk Management and Insurance at the Robinson College of Business.  


Candidates must have a completed Ph.D.  by the time of appointment in actuarial science or a related field such as statistics, risk management or applied mathematics. Candidates should have the capability to publish in top actuarial, risk management, statistics/econometrics, economics, finance, and/or applied mathematics journals in the broad area of actuarial science. For all candidates, an actuarial credential from any of the major professional societies is required. If a candidate does not already have an actuarial credential, he/she should be on track to obtaining one within a year of appointment. We are an interdisciplinary department that is also hiring faculty in the areas of mathematical risk management/mathematical finance/financial technology and in insurance economics as the first phase of a multi-year recruiting strategy. We are interested in intellectually curious candidates with versatility in their research and teaching interests.


The Department of Risk Management and Insurance at Georgia State University is one of the oldest and most influential risk management programs in the U.S. and has a distinguished history of serving students, alumni, and the risk management profession for more than 60 years. We are currently rated #5 in the U.S. News and World Report ranking of RMI programs; we hold a Center of Actuarial Excellence designation from the Society of Actuaries; and we are an Accredited Risk Program according to the Professional Risk Management International Association (PRMIA).

The mission of the department is to better understand how risks faced by individuals, institutions, and societies can be more accurately measured and more efficiently managed. The department has both undergraduate and graduate actuarial science programs as well as an active PhD program.  Our actuarial group is active and visible: for example, we hosted the Congress on Insurance: Mathematics and Economics in 2016 and the Actuarial Research Conference in 2017.

The salary level and course load are competitive for actuarial faculty at business schools in the United States.
