The Department of Mathematics at Washington and Lee University invites applications for a visiting assistant professorship for the 2019-2020 year. W&L is a small, prestigious liberal arts institution, where mathematics is one of the largest departments in the college. We mentor a very active group of talented students, where the number of mathematics majors is five times the national average for a school our size. But we also offer a wide variety of interesting and attractive courses at lower levels of mathematics that serve our ever more diverse student body, where more than 8 out of 10 students will take a mathematics course from us before they graduate. We are committed to the development of an inclusive environment, where we value input from multiple viewpoints and perspectives; our goal is to create and maintain a vibrant academic community that is rich with intellectual diversity. Diversity is a core value of the Department of Mathematics. We believe that the educational environment is enhanced when people with diverse backgrounds and ideas come together to learn.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in mathematics with a successful record in the classroom and a passion for excellence in teaching. Your cover letter should clearly indicate how you would contribute to an energetic mathematics department in a liberal arts environment.

To apply please submit the following application materials: a cover letter, teaching philosophy, curriculum vitae, and at least three letters of reference in support of your teaching.

Washington and Lee is an Equal Opportunity Employer. As such, we are interested in candidates who are committed to high standards of scholarship, performance and professionalism and to the development of a campus climate that supports equality and diversity in our faculty, staff and student body.
