Applications should include a cover letter, the American Mathematical Society’s Cover Sheet for Academic Employment, a curriculum vitae, statements of research, diversity, and teaching interests, and at least three letters of recommendation. The cover letter should express how the candidate hopes to fit in our department. Review of applications will begin on November 15, 2021, and continue until the position is filled. We will request letters of recommendation from selected candidates, and once requested, those must be received by November 29, 2021.
If you have additional letters regarding teaching or research that you would like to include with your application, you may do so by uploading them via the “Additional Documents” feature on Interfolio.
Candidates must include a diversity statement that addresses their contributions to diversity, equity, and inclusion. This should be a one-to-two-page statement highlighting past contributions and future plans to advance equity, diversity, and inclusion, with attention to how the applicant has supported the success of students from racial, ethnic, and gender backgrounds that are underrepresented in mathematics.
Guidance for job application materials
The research, teaching, and diversity statements can be organized in a variety of ways, but each should, at a minimum, communicate the following information:
- the broad vision and long-term impact that the applicant seeks;
- concrete examples of prior activities and accomplishments, if any, that showcase the ability of the applicant to achieve their vision;
- immediate plans and specific strategies for addressing that vision.
The research statement should be written for a broad mathematical audience, so that any mathematician can appreciate the impact of the candidate’s work, and preferably is 5–7 pages (plus references).
The teaching statement should discuss past teaching and mentoring experience and plans for improvement and development, and preferably is 1–2 pages.
The diversity statement should discuss past contributions and future plans to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion. These contributions could include (but are not limited to):
- Leadership or active roles in DEI-focused organizations, e.g., Math Alliance, SACNAS, NAM, AWM, etc.
- Creating equitable and inclusive environments in an applicant’s service, teaching, or organizational efforts (e.g., seminars or conferences)
- Dissemination of materials or guides for creating equitable and inclusive environments
- Intentional mentoring (formal or informal) to students from historically excluded groups
We encourage applicants to provide concrete examples of their contribution(s) as well as a detailed description of the impact of and motivation for those contributions
