For the open specialization position, required qualifications include a Ph.D. in mathematics or a related field, a record of teaching excellence, and evidence of the ability to maintain an active research program in mathematics. For the position with actuarial science/statistics preference, highly qualified candidates who possess Associate or Fellow status with the SOA or Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS) together with a Masters in mathematics or a related field, but no Ph.D., will also be considered.

A full application includes a letter of intent, curriculum vitae, teaching statement, research statement or statement describing industrial experience, and at least three letters of recommendation.
