The Department of Mathematics and Statistics invites applications for a full-time tenure-track or tenured appointment in mathematics beginning July 2018. Within the last decade, Amherst College has transformed its student body in terms of socioeconomic status, ethnicity, and nationality. We seek applicants who can teach and encourage students of diverse backgrounds, including first-generation college students, international students, and students with varying mathematical preparation. Responsibilities include teaching two courses per semester and supervising undergraduate theses. Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in mathematics or a related field, have a strong commitment to research, and be passionate about teaching undergraduates at all levels. A senior appointment would be with tenure, contingent upon a tenure review.
Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, research statement, teaching statement, and at least three letters of recommendation (including at least one that specifically addresses teaching), to MathJobs.Org. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled, and applications received by December 1, 2017, will be guaranteed consideration.
Questions can be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Amherst College is co-educational liberal arts college with 1,800 students and 200 faculty. Resources for faculty include a Teaching and Learning Collaborative, a Center for Community Engagement, and a Faculty Research Award Program.
