Teaching Professor


The Department of Mathematics at Xavier University encourages applications for a non-tenure-track Teaching Professor of Mathematics, starting in Fall 2021. The position is renewable on an annual basis, with eligibility for promotion to the rank of Senior Teaching Professor after six consecutive years of service. Candidates must be dedicated to excellence in undergraduate teaching. Applicants must have a M.A., M.S., or Ph.D. in the mathematical sciences, completed no later than August 2021. 


The Mission of Xavier’s Department of Mathematics is to build a community that champions and promotes the mathematician in everyone. We are home to four undergraduate degree programs and offer minors in mathematics, statistics, and applied mathematics. Our department currently has eighteen faculty members, six of whom are teaching professors. Class sizes are intentionally kept small: we believe that the best teaching can be done when there is close faculty-student interaction for discussion, exploration and thought. We seek colleagues excited about joining university and departmental efforts to further advance the culture of inquiry within our student body. Applicants must be committed to outstanding teaching in a liberal arts tradition of active learning, as well as service consistent with the University’s mission statement: “to educate each student intellectually, morally, and spiritually … as they cultivate lives of reflection, compassion and informed action.” 


Teaching Professor duties include teaching introductory-level mathematics or statistics courses aimed at students not majoring in mathematics. The typical teaching load is four courses each semester. A successful candidate will be expected to utilize innovative and effective approaches in the teaching of mathematics.


Xavier is committed to a diverse and inclusive environment. We welcome a broad spectrum of candidates, and particularly invite applications from women, ethnic and racial minorities, and other individuals who are underrepresented in the profession. Additionally, candidates who have worked with a diverse range of faculty, staff, and students and who can contribute to our mission of inclusivity are encouraged to identify their experiences and interests.


The successful candidate will join the Xavier faculty in the 500-year-old Jesuit Catholic tradition of academic excellence in the liberal arts serving a diverse population of students. Our location in Cincinnati, Ohio allows faculty members to work with community partners to develop engaged learning opportunities. Xavier is a member of the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities and the Big East collegiate athletic conference. For the last two decades, U.S. News & World Report has ranked Xavier among the top 10 master’s-level universities in the Midwest.


A complete application includes a cover letter; curriculum vitae; a statement concerning the candidate’s personal practice of and aspirations for teaching; a statement on their experiences with diverse populations; graduate transcripts; and three letters of recommendation. These items should be submitted online at: http://www.mathjobs.org.
