The Department of Mathematics at Johns Hopkins University seeks a full-time teaching faculty member to support the direction of its entry-level course sequence. Responsibilities will include instruction, course coordination, curriculum and technology innovation, and participation in the delivery of professional development of instructors and TAs. We view this as a dynamic position: the successful candidate will join a team of teaching faculty who have significant latitude in the coming years to revise and re-imagine our existing programming. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in the mathematical sciences or mathematics education, as well as demonstrated excellence in teaching.

We anticipate an initial appointment at the rank of Lecturer or Senior Lecturer. Our intention, contingent on performance during an initial review period, is for this to be a long-term hire, eligible for eventual promotion to the rank of Associate or Full Teaching Professor. The position is benefits-eligible, including JHU's excellent college tuition benefit for dependent children.

We seek candidates with a record of excellence in teaching and teaching-related scholarly activities, the intellectual curiosity to pursue novel and innovative methods of thinking and teaching, and a commitment to inclusive and student-centered pedagogy and teaching innovation; an interest in establishing a long-term teaching career with the Department; the administrative, organizational, and mentoring skills required to coordinate a large service course; and the mathematical background necessary to interact with the graduate students in our department.

To apply, please submit a cover letter specific to this position, along with a curriculum vitae and teaching dossier. The dossier should at a minimum include a teaching portfolio, including a teaching statement, and a scholarship statement describing work and interest in the area of teaching and learning. Please also arrange the submission of four letters of recommendation, at least two of which address your teaching and leadership experience, and at least one of which addresses your mathematical background. Consideration of applications will begin on December 1, 2021, and will continue until the position is filled.

Johns Hopkins University is committed to active recruitment of a diverse faculty and student body. The University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer of women, minorities, protected veterans and individuals with disabilities, and encourages applications from members of these and other protected groups. We are committed to conducting a broad and inclusive search for a candidate who will contribute to the diversity and excellence of the JHU community. Consistent with the University's goals of achieving excellence in all areas, we will assess the comprehensive qualifications of each applicant.
