Position Announcement 
The Department of Mathematics at California State University, Dominguez Hills invites applications for a Tenure-track position (Statistics Preferred) at the rank of Academic Year Assistant Professor with the appointment starting in Fall 2019. 

At CSUDH we celebrate and respect diversity in all forms that includes every race, religion, gender, ethnicity, veterans, people with varied abilities, and members of the LGBTQ+ community. CSUDH is seeking applications from candidates who can demonstrate experience in teaching and working with individuals from diverse backgrounds and contribute to the University’s mission, vision, and core values.

Mathematics Department 
The Mathematics Department offers a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics, and we teach many service courses. We have seven 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. For more information see:

The successful candidate will be expected to: 
  1. Update and maintain the department’s undergraduate curriculum in probability and statistics, including such courses as Probability and Statistics, Mathematical Statistics, and Stochastic Processes; 
  2. Teach effectively in a variety of courses for undergraduate mathematics majors, and service courses, with a focus on courses in probability and statistics; 
  3. Maintain appropriate research and scholarly activities in statistics or related areas; 
  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, college, and university committees. 
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.
