The standard teaching load is ~21 credit hours per year (3-4 courses per semester) with an appropriate level of scholarly activity that includes mentoring undergraduate research students.
A Ph.D. in Mathematics, Statistics, or Applied Mathematics is required.
Proven or demonstrated potential for excellence in undergraduate teaching (both majors and non-majors) and engaging in research with undergraduates is required.
Candidates with scholarly activity in an area that broadens that of the current faculty (especially statistics, data science, or applied mathematics), that leverages existing community and University resources, and that is conducive to undergraduate research are particularly encouraged to apply.
Experience or interest in pedagogical innovation, online/hybrid instructional resource development, and implementing active and/or inquiry-based learning is desired.
Faculty from advanced ranks should indicate their interest and experience with leadership and program development.
An application cover letter that indicates whether or not you will attend or present at the 2019 Joint Mathematics Meetings in Baltimore
Statement of teaching philosophy, including any experience with pedagogical innovation, inquiry-based or active learning, or the development of online courses/instructional materials
Summary of research interests written for a general audience
Unofficial copies of transcripts (both undergraduate and graduate level)
Three reference letters, at least one of which addresses teaching. References letters may be uploaded with the application materials or emailed confidentially by the referrer to email@example.com, with the applicant's name and Job Reference Number J18120 in the subject line.
