All mathematics faculty teach courses across the undergraduate math curriculum. Our engaged and diverse majors go on to a wide variety of professions as well as graduate school in various fields (the department ranks 20th in the country, adjusted for institutional size, in the production of students who go on to earn PhDs). Grinnell provides excellent support for research with students, and generous funds for faculty development and travel.

Grinnell College is a highly selective undergraduate liberal arts college with a strong tradition of social responsibility. In letters of application, candidates should discuss their potential to contribute to a college community that maintains a diversity of people and perspectives as one of its core values; in particular, candidates should address ways in which they can help all students, especially students from underrepresented backgrounds, feel like they belong to the Grinnell learning community.
