Teaching Professor Mathematics

The Department of Mathematics at Xavier University encourages applications for a non-tenure-track, yearly-renewable Teaching Professor of Mathematics, starting in Fall 2019. The Teaching Professor position is renewable on a yearly basis, with the potential after six years for promotion to Senior Teaching Professor, which has a two year rolling-renewable contract. Candidates must be dedicated to excellent undergraduate teaching. Applicants must have a M.A., M.S., or Ph.D. in the mathematical sciences, completed no later than August 2019.

The Mission of the Xavier Department of Mathematics is to build a community that champions and promotes the mathematician in everyone. The Xavier Mathematics department is home to two majors; one in mathematics and one in actuarial sciences, and has minors in mathematics, statistics, and applied mathematics. We have active student clubs in mathematics and actuarial sciences. We are a department of sixteen permanent faculty, three of whom are teaching professors. Introductory class sizes are capped at 30 (upper-level classes are typically smaller), ensuring individual attention to and faculty support of our students. Our faculty believe that the best teaching can be done only when there is close faculty-student interaction for discussion, thinking, and exploring.

Duties will include teaching core-level mathematics or statistics courses, primarily aimed at students not majoring in mathematics. We seek colleagues excited about joining university and departmental efforts to further advance the culture of inquiry within our student body. Applicants must be committed to outstanding teaching in a liberal arts tradition of active learning and to service consistent with Xavier’s Mission Statement: “to educate each student intellectually, morally, and spiritually … as they cultivate lives of reflection, compassion and informed action.” A successful candidate will be expected to utilize innovative and effective approaches in the teaching of mathematics. The teaching load is typically four courses each semester.

Xavier is committed to a diverse and inclusive environment; we welcome a broad spectrum of candidates, and particularly invite applications from women, ethnic and racial minorities, and other individuals who are under-represented in the profession. Additionally, candidates who have worked with a diverse range of faculty, staff, and students and who can contribute to our mission of inclusivity are encouraged to identify their experiences and interests. For full consideration, applicants should describe their experiences with diverse populations.

The successful candidate will join the Xavier faculty in the 500-year-old Jesuit Catholic tradition of academic excellence in the liberal arts serving a diverse population of students. Xavier’s location in Cincinnati allows faculty members to work with community partners to develop engaged learning opportunities. Xavier is a member of the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities as well as the Big East. The U.S. News and World Report has ranked the University 20 years in a row among the top 10 Midwest colleges and universities. Cincinnati is also ranked as one of the U.S. News and World Report’s 50 best places to live in the USA.

A complete application includes a cover letter; curriculum vitae; a statement concerning the candidate’s personal practice of and aspirations for teaching; a statement on their experiences with diverse populations; graduate transcripts; and three letters of recommendation. These items should be submitted online at http://www.mathjobs.org. To ensure full consideration, all materials must be received by January 14, 2019. Questions about the position may be directed to Professor Dena S. Morton, Chair, Department of Mathematics, morton@xavier.edu.
