The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Davidson College invites applications for three two-year positions at the Visiting Assistant Professor level with a start date of July 1, 2019. For at least one of the positions we are particularly interested in candidates who have the capacity to teach courses in computer science in addition to mathematics. Completion or imminent completion of the Ph.D. in mathematics or a closely related field is required, and undergraduate teaching experience is preferred. Candidates must be committed to outstanding teaching and continuing scholarly activity within a liberal arts context. The teaching load is 5 semester courses per year.

Applications must be submitted online at employment.davidson.edu, and include a cover letter addressing professional interests and aspirations pertaining to research and teaching, a research statement, a teaching statement, a 1-2 page diversity statement that outlines how one’s teaching, research, and/or service might contribute to Davidson’s institutional commitment to diversity and inclusion, a curriculum vitae, and (unofficial) graduate transcripts. Applications must also include contact information for three references (submission instructions will be sent to email addresses the applicant provides). At least one reference letter must specifically and substantially address the applicant's teaching. Davidson College aims to broaden access to higher education, and our department strives to increase access to STEM majors and careers among underrepresented groups. We seek colleagues who share these aspirations, and we value faculty engagement with the professional and wider community. The deadline for completed applications is February 8, 2019.

Consistently ranked among the nation's top liberal arts colleges, Davidson College is a highly selective, independent liberal arts college located in Davidson, North Carolina, close to the city of Charlotte. Davidson faculty enjoy a low student-faculty ratio, emphasis on and appreciation of excellence in teaching, and a collegial, respectful atmosphere that honors academic achievement and integrity. At Davidson College, we believe the college grows stronger by recruiting and retaining a diverse faculty and staff committed to building an inclusive community. In order to achieve and sustain educational excellence, we seek to hire talented faculty and staff across the intersections of diverse races, ethnicities, religions, sexual orientations, gender identities, ages, socio-economic backgrounds, political perspectives, abilities, cultures, and national origin.
