The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at The University of the South, commonly known as Sewanee, invites applications for two Visiting Assistant Professor of Statistics positions that will begin in August 2021, with a possibility of renewal beyond the initial one-year appointment. Each of these positions requires a Ph.D. in mathematics, statistics, or computer science and carries a teaching load of 3 courses per semester, including at least 2 sections of Elementary Statistics per semester.

excellence in teaching across the curriculum,
scholarship in a liberal arts environment,
close student mentorship, and
engagement in the broader community,
all of which should be addressed in the application. A careful review of applications for these positions will begin on February 1, 2021 and will continue until the positions have been filled.
A complete application includes the following:
a cover letter that includes an overview of current and anticipated research activity,
a curriculum vitae,
