The Department of Mathematics at the California Institute of Technology invites applications for the Hearst Teaching Fellowship in Mathematics, beginning August 2023.

The Hearst Teaching Fellowship will be offered to candidates within six years of having received their PhD who show strong understanding of undergraduate teaching, learning, and curricular issues. Successful candidates will have the experience necessary to teach and develop a broad range of service courses using evidence-based methods.

Appointments are for three years. Appointees will be expected to teach four one-quarter courses per academic year, and to work side by side with other faculty on teaching, developing, and supporting undergraduate courses in mathematics. In addition, they may also pursue their own research program, including projects in mathematics education research, and participate in research projects in the department. Summer can be used for one-month vacation, research and other scholarly activities.

We will be interested in seeing a teaching portfolio, including a sample lesson plan, and a sample teaching video of an actual lesson.

We are an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to age, race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.

Caltech has implemented a mandatory vaccination policy effective October 15, 2021, requiring COVID-19 vaccinations for all employees (with Institute-approved exemptions for religious or medical contraindications only). At present, an individual is deemed “fully vaccinated” when that person has received, at least 14 days prior, either the second dose in a two-dose COVID-19 vaccine series (e.g., Pfizer or Moderna) or a single-dose COVID-19 vaccine (e.g., Johnson & Johnson). Upon eligibility, employees are required to receive the COVID-19 booster as part of the vaccine mandate. As a condition of employment, employees must submit official COVID-19 vaccine documentation.
