Jobs, University of Delaware

Posted: November 1, 2021

The Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Delaware invites applications for a permanent, teaching-focused continuing track (non-tenured, rolling contract) faculty member at the rank of Assistant Professor.


Candidates must have:

  • A Ph.D. in mathematics, mathematics education, or a closely related discipline.  In the latter cases, the candidate must have a master’s in mathematics.
  • Experience as primary instructor of an undergraduate mathematics course.
  • A strong commitment to developing excellence in teaching.
  • A strong interest in teaching undergraduate college mathematics courses to a variety of audiences. 


The successful candidate should have experience in one or more of the following:

  • Teaching courses of 90+ students.
  • Teaching calculus, linear algebra, or discrete mathematics.
  • Supervising or training TAs.
  • Working in a coordinated teaching environment (preferably as coordinator).


A full teaching load is twelve credits per semester; the successful candidate will also participate in training and supervising teaching assistants and coordinating multi-section courses, for which appropriate course release will be given.  Though the main focus of the position is teaching, promotion through the professorial ranks requires research in mathematics, mathematics education, or the scholarship of teaching and learning.  Scholarship is expected to represent one-eighth of the successful candidate’s workload, with appropriate course release given.  The expected start date is August 16, 2022.


To apply, use the MathJobs system to submit:

  • an AMS cover sheet,
  • a detailed cover letter outlining interest in the position and relevant skills and experience,
  • a current CV,
  • three letters of recommendation, and 
  • a statement of teaching philosophy (maximum of three pages) addressing the job qualifications described above.


Review of applications will begin on December 1, 2021 and will continue until the position is filled.  Questions, but not application material, should be e-mailed to Dr. Kilikian ( with “CT Position” in the subject line.
