|The Lawrence University Department of Mathematics and Computer Science invites applications for a tenure-track position in statistics starting September 2014. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in statistics or a closely related field by August 2014. The department seeks an excellent teacher and active scholar who is committed to providing talented undergraduates with a transformative education. Lawrence University is a highly selective liberal arts college with 1500 students located in Appleton, Wisconsin. The normal teaching load is two courses per term for three ten-week terms a year, including participation in Lawrence's signature Freshman Studies program on a rotating basis. The successful applicant will be expected to teach both introductory statistics and upper level courses of their own design. In addition to these regularly scheduled courses, all Lawrence faculty enjoy the freedom to teach advanced subjects and specialized material through independent study and tutorial work with highly motivated and interested students. Competitive start-up funds will be available.
Via MathJobs.org, submit a cover letter explaining interest in the liberal arts and Lawrence in particular, curriculum vitae, statements on teaching and research, undergraduate and graduate transcripts (unofficial transcripts are fine at this point), and three letters of recommendation, at least one of which must attest specifically to teaching expertise. Email inquiries welcome to Scott Corry, chair of the search committee, at email@example.com.
Please submit formal application materials to MathJobs by October 18, 2013. Review of materials will begin immediately. Lawrence University is an Equal Opportunity Employer and is committed to enhancing diversity on campus. Members of underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply.
