Hamilton College- Employment Opportunity

The Mathematics Department at Hamilton College invites applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor, beginning July 1, 2017.

Commitment to excellence in all aspects of undergraduate teaching and mentorship is essential, as is a passion for working with students, both in and beyond the classroom, in a vibrant department that is currently averaging between 40 and 50 majors per year.  Prior teaching experience is desirable.  The teaching load for this position is four courses during the first year and five courses thereafter.

A PhD is required.  The position is open to all areas of mathematics, with some preference for candidates specializing in topology/geometry or applied mathematics.  Active scholarship is expected, and candidates should indicate how both their research programs and related teaching interests would contribute to the department’s curriculum. For more information see: http://www.hamilton.edu/academics/math/default.html.

Finally, we are seeking candidates who can demonstrate their experiences in teaching or working with diverse student populations.  Your comprehensive cover letter should thus address the ways in which you would further the College’s goal of building a diverse educational environment.

A complete application will include the AMS cover sheet, a current curriculum vitae, research and teaching statements, and three letters of reference (including at least one that evaluates teaching.) These may be submitted electronically at http://www.mathjobs.org. Applications will be accepted until November 18, 2016. The search committee will interview finalists at the JMM in January 2017 or via Skype.

Questions regarding the search may be directed to Robert Kantrowitz, Search Committee Chair, at rkantrow@hamilton.edu.
