New Mexico State University Graduate Studies in Mathematics

The Department of Mathematical Sciences at New Mexico State University anticipates positions to be open in our Master’s and Ph.D. programs for Fall 2023. Our department offers TAs at both the Master’s and Ph.D. level valued at approximately $20,000 per year. We also have a major Kist Foundation grant that allows us to support a limited number of Kist Fellows and various educational initiatives. Our department has strong research groups in Algebra, Applied Analysis, Foundations, and Probability and Statistics The local area is a beautiful mix of Spanish and US cultures, a desert/mountain climate, and a relatively low cost of living. Applications can be submitted at and we begin reviewing applications in early January. It is okay if an application is not 100% complete by then, but it is encouraged for there to be enough for us to get a good idea. Please contact our Graduate Secretary Paloma Pavao with any questions.

Join a department that prides itself on a commitment to research and mentoring. Our excellent 2-to-1 student-faculty ratio offers you the opportunity to work closely with faculty and other students. Choose from a variety of courses and research areas such as Algebra, Applied Mathematics, Foundations, Partial Differential Equations, Probability, and Statistics. Seminars, colloquia, and working groups engage students in an active and stimulating research climate.
