Two Tenure-Track Positions in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Smith College Announced

One Assistant Professor and one open rank position in Mathematics & Statistics

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Smith College invites applications for one tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor, and one open rank position to begin in July 1, 2020. Dedicated teacher-scholars from all areas of mathematics or related fields are encouraged to apply. Qualifications for both positions include a Ph.D. in Mathematics or in a related field (except Statistics), a strong commitment to teaching, and a high potential for research. We seek candidates with research interests that complement those of the current faculty and with experience and strong interest in undergraduate teaching. For one of the two positions, preference will be given to an applied mathematician.

For the open rank position, we will give preference to candidates who show qualities that will enable them, after a short period of adaptation, to take on leadership positions in the governance of the department.

We are the home of the Center for Women in Mathematics. In addition to courses in theoretical mathematics and applied mathematics, we co-host a Five College certificate in the biomathematical sciences, and with our award-winning post-baccalaureate program, we send a cohort of students to graduate school each year. The department is active in numerous research areas, with dynamic collaborations between faculty, and with students. Further details may be found at www.smith.edu/academics/mathematics-statistics.
