Visiting Assistant Professor of Mathematics

Lyon College seeks qualified candidates for a two year Visiting Assistant Professor of Mathematics position, with the possibility of tenure-track conversion after two years, beginning in August 2021. Applicants should have a Ph.D. in mathematics, applied mathematics, statistics, or a related quantitative field with preference given to those who specialize in one or more areas of applied mathematics. Candidates who are ABD will be given serious consideration. The primary requirement is excellence in teaching, but research potential is also important. The successful applicant will be able to teach a broad range of undergraduate mathematics classes including Differential Equations, Probability and Statistics, and special topics courses in applied mathematics. Furthermore, the successful applicant will be enthusiastic about teaching core courses that have a significant impact on student retention. Experience at a small, residential liberal arts college as a student or as a faculty member is desirable. Absent that experience, an understanding of the difference between a small college and a university and the desire to be on the faculty of a small college are important. Additional responsibilities will include advising students and participating in college governance and service. Salary is commensurate with experience and qualifications.

Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. To apply, send a letter of application, a curriculum vitae, statement of teaching philosophy, and research interests along with the names of at least three current references and their contact information to Ms. Rebecca Varela, Office of Human Resources, 2300 Highland Road, Batesville, AR 72501 or electronically to with “Visiting Assistant Professor of Mathematics” in the subject line.
