The Department of Computer Science, Mathematics and Statistics at Colorado Mesa University invites applicants for two tenure-track Assistant Professor of Mathematics positions. Colorado Mesa University is a public four-year liberal arts institution with a B.S. program in Mathematics. The primary responsibility of both positions is to teach both upper and lower division undergraduate mathematics courses. For one of the positions, strong preference will be given to candidates with a background in Applied Mathematics and a demonstrated ability to teach courses such as Mathematical Modeling, Numerical Analysis, and Methods of Applied Mathematics.

The standard teaching load is 12 credit hours per semester; some assigned courses may be taught on-line, hybrid, or via distance delivery modalities. Scholarship in the discipline, involvement with advising, and service to the department and profession are expected.

Grand Junction is located in beautiful western Colorado, where the moderate climate permits a variety of year-round outdoor recreation activities. The city and surrounding area, located midway between Denver and Salt Lake City, with a population of approximately 150,000, serve as the economic hub of the region.

ESSENTIAL DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES include the following. Other duties may be assigned.
  • Teach undergraduate level mathematics courses.
  • Maintain an active program of scholarship.
  • Serve as a mentor for student research projects and activities.
  • Provide student academic advising and evaluation.
  • Complete professional development activities and service to the department, university, and profession.
  • Perform other program and department level duties as assigned.
To perform this job successfully, an individual must be able to perform each essential duty and responsibility satisfactorily. The requirements listed below are representative of the knowledge, skill and/or ability required.

  • PhD in Mathematics or Applied Mathematics from a regionally accredited institution, completed by August 2018.
  • Experience in teaching undergraduate mathematics courses.
Preference will be given to candidates with excellent communication skills, a record of outstanding teaching of undergraduate mathematics, and the ability to teach a variety of upper level courses that serve mathematics majors as well as service courses for non-majors.

Evidence of dedication to scholarship, particularly in the mentoring of undergraduate research, and a commitment to service activities will help further distinguish the applicant.

Additional consideration will be given to candidates whose professional areas or scholarly interests best complement those of the mathematics faculty. In particular, candidates with a background in Applied Mathematics are highly desired for one of the two positions.

Colorado Mesa University is particularly interested in candidates who have experience working with students from diverse backgrounds and who have a demonstrated commitment to improving the levels of access and success for underrepresented students within higher education.
