ASSISTANT PROFESSOR OF MATHEMATICS

College of Natural and Behavioral Sciences

Position Announcement

The faculty of the Mathematics Department at California State University Dominguez Hills invites applications from individuals for a tenure-track assistant professor position in the Mathematics Department.

Responsibilities

The successful candidate will be expected to:
  1. Participate in updating and revising the department’s undergraduate curriculum.
  2. Teach effectively in a variety of courses for undergraduate mathematics majors, and service courses, with a focus on courses in areas of expertise not represented among current faculty, such as Differential Equations, Probability and Statistics, or Numerical Analysis;
  3. Maintain appropriate research and scholarly activities in mathematics or applied mathematics;
  4. Participate in the activities of the mathematics department, such as seminars and math club events;
  5. Assist with student advising and program development;
  6. Serve on departmental, school, and university committees.
Women and minorities are especially encouraged to apply.

Note: our typical teaching load is twelve units per semester (new faculty teach nine units per semester for the first two years). Courses may be three, four, or five units, so that twelve units does not necessarily equate to four courses. Faculty who are active in grants and projects use grant funds to reduce their teaching load. Published research is expected and is a requirement for tenure and promotion.

Mathematics Department

The Mathematics Department offers a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics, and we teach many service courses. We have six tenured or tenure-track faculty members with a variety of backgrounds and research interests in pure and applied mathematics and mathematics education, and we have several lecturers with full- and part-time appointments. We are a group committed to the mission of the university, and we work collegially to prepare students for successful careers. We are located in the Los Angeles area, near major industries and research universities. Our faculty members attend seminars and colloquia at home and at UCLA, USC, Caltech, and other nearby California State University campuses.

Our mission is to provide our students with a strong foundation in mathematics, preparing them for success in graduate study, professional careers in business, industry, and government, and teaching.
