Apply on Mathjobs and Interfolio

The Department of Mathematical Sciences at Carnegie Mellon University invites applications for an Assistant Teaching Professor to begin September 1, 2023. Candidates with sufficient experience may also be considered for an Associate Teaching Professor appointment.

Carnegie Mellon University has teaching-track faculty with the titles of Assistant Teaching Professor, Associate Teaching Professor, and Teaching Professor. These non-tenure-track faculty positions are considered career positions that are not temporary, but with the expectation of reappointment and promotion. The standard teaching load for teaching-track faculty in Mathematical Sciences is three courses per semester, though this may be reduced in cases of increased service responsibilities.

A Ph.D. in Mathematics or a closely related discipline is required. Demonstrated excellence in classroom teaching is expected. Preference will be given to candidates with sustained demonstrated excellence in teaching, as well as candidates who can guide undergraduate research projects and have the potential to contribute to educational initiatives in the Department and across the University.

The Department of Mathematical Sciences is committed to increasing the diversity of its community on a range of intellectual and cultural dimensions and is part of a College and University that is proactive to include more members of previously under-represented groups. We seek candidates who, through their research, teaching, and/or service will contribute to the diversity and excellence of our academic community.

Applicants should submit all materials electronically through Mathjobs and Interfolio. This includes a cover letter, curriculum vita, list of publications, a statement describing teaching contributions and philosophy, a statement describing research interests (which may include undergraduate research experiences and potential projects), and a diversity statement. A minimum of three letters of reference are also required, with at least one letter addressing the applicant’s teaching ability.

Applications should be submitted by December 15, 2022. Applications may be accepted and reviewed until the position is filled.
