Harvey Mudd College is a highly selective undergraduate institution of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. We are located in Claremont, CA, which is approximately 35 miles east of Los Angeles, at the foot of the San Gabriel Mountains. Nearly a third of our students were either valedictorian or salutatorian in their high school classes, almost half scored 800 on their SATs in math, and all students enter having already taken calculus or beyond. The college enrolls about 800 students and is a member of the Claremont Colleges, which is comprised of five undergraduate colleges, the Claremont Graduate University, and the Keck Graduate Institute of Applied Life Sciences.

The Department of Mathematics at Harvey Mudd College has been recognized as a leader in teaching, research, undergraduate research mentoring, and educational outreach. In 2006, the American Mathematical Society recognized the department with its inaugural award for Exemplary Program or Achievement in a Mathematics Department. Each year there are about 40 graduates in the mathematical sciences, and about half of these students go on to graduate school. Further information about the college and the department can be found at and Harvey Mudd College is committed to broadening the participation of students in STEM fields, and experience with or demonstrated ability to teach or mentor underrepresented students is among the criteria for appointment.

Applications must be submitted through the MathJobs.Org website, and preference will be given to applications completed by March 24, 2017. Applicants should submit (1) a cover letter, (2) a curriculum vitae, (3) a research statement, (4) a teaching statement, and (5) at least three letters of recommendation.
