Job Description: We invite applications for two tenure-track positions in Mathematics, beginning in fall 2012, one as Assistant Professor and the second as either Assistant Professor or Associate Professor. An applicant should possess, by the fall of 2012, a Ph.D. in mathematics or a closely related field. A candidate should give evidence of excellent, innovative teaching and demonstrate a commitment to continued scholarly and professional development. A successful applicant will have the opportunity to teach a broad range of topics in undergraduate mathematics, to engage students in undergraduate research, and to mentor internships.
The department is particularly interested in a candidate whose areas of interest lend themselves to opportunities for undergraduate research. Although all specialties will be considered, for the rank of Associate Professor, preference will be given to a candidate whose expertise in fields such as analysis, applied mathematics, PDE or discrete math complements that of the current faculty, (algebra, algebraic graph theory, algebraic topology, logic, operations research, and undergraduate education). In addition, a candidate for the rank of Associate Professor should provide evidence of leadership potential.
Faculty at Manhattan College are expected to teach six to seven courses per year, mentor and advise students, and maintain an active scholarly program. The College is prepared to assist newly appointed faculty members in pursuing a research program. Salary and years credited toward tenure will be commensurate with experience.
Application: Preliminary interviews with available candidates will be held at the Joint Mathematics Meetings in Boston. An application must include an AMS Cover Sheet, a letter of application, a curriculum vitae, and statements of teaching philosophy and research interests. Three letters of reference should also be furnished, two of which should address teaching. Review of applications will begin on December 15 and will continue until the positions are filled. All applications and recommendations must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. No hard copies will be reviewed.|
