Lecturers play a crucial role in our dynamic instructional enterprise by bringing subject expertise and commitment to excellence in teaching to bear in educating our exceptional undergraduates. In recognition of their importance to the university’s mission, lecturers enjoy significant professional development opportunities, including a well-defined promotion structure, a professional development leave program, and access to travel funds for conference presentations. Summer teaching, both in-person and online, is available. A Ph.D. in mathematics or a closely related field with substantial coursework in mathematics (at least 18 credit hours of graduate mathematics courses) is required prior to the start of the appointment. Candidates should have a record of success in curriculum development and innovative teaching. The salary is competitive and commensurate with qualifications and experience and includes a full benefits package.

The Search Committee will begin reviewing applications on January 5, 2022, and continue accepting applications until the positions are filled.

The final candidate will be required to provide an official transcript to the hiring department upon hire. A transcript will not be considered “official” if a designation of “Issued to Student” is visible. Degrees earned from an educational institution outside of the United States require evaluation by a professional credentialing service provider approved by the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES), which can be found at http://www.naces.org/.
