|Tenure Track Assistant/Associate Professor, Mathematical Sciences|
The Department of Mathematical Sciences at Bentley University is an independent, private business-oriented university located in suburban Boston. We are seeking to fill two full-time, open-rank, tenure-track positions beginning in Fall 2017. These appointments are intended to add to our strength in applied statistics, data science, and business analytics and to expand our teaching and research capabilities in related areas, such as probability, modeling, financial mathematics, actuarial science, or related areas of applied mathematics (e.g., complex systems and simulation). One position will be specifically in applied statistics with a business orientation, and the other may branch more generally into the other areas listed. A data science background to complement our current resources and developing program would be highly desirable in one of the appointments. Note that the only way to submit a formal application is through our web portal, which is located at http://jobs.bentley.edu/postings/2070.
The Mathematical Sciences Department offers undergraduate degrees in mathematical sciences and actuarial science and an MS in Business Analytics, and it is active in the PhD program in Business both in teaching and in doctoral student supervision. We value collaboration with faculty in other departments and have a particularly strong record of leadership in such activities. Candidates are encouraged to learn more about our department by visiting http://www.bentley.edu/mathematics/.
Criteria for selection for both positions include: a) interest, commitment, and skill in effective teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate levels; b) evidence of or potential for high quality research; c) direct, current knowledge of the business environment into which we place many of our graduates; d) strong interpersonal skills for building research connections with faculty in various departments and with business collaborators; e) organizational skills to facilitate supporting and building academic programs consistent with the department's mission. Applied experience in academic or nonacademic spheres is highly desirable.
Candidates must have completed a doctoral degree in an appropriate field prior to the start of employment. Salary, benefits, and teaching load are competitive.
