Assistant Professor (tenure-track), Statistics or Mathematics, Sonoma State University

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics within the School of Science and Technology at Sonoma State University (SSU) is seeking a highly motivated teacher/scholar in statistics or statistics education. Exceptional candidates in other areas of mathematics and statistics may also be considered. The available tenure-track position is at the rank of assistant professor. A Ph.D. in Statistics, Statistics Education, or Mathematics is required by August 15, 2017. Preference will be given to candidates with a Ph.D. in statistics, or a Ph.D. in mathematics with a Masters degree in statistics or its equivalent, or a Ph.D. in statistics education with a Masters in statistics or its equivalent. The successful candidate should have a demonstrated record of excellence and innovation in undergraduate teaching and be actively engaged in scholarly work.

The selected candidate will be expected to teach a variety of undergraduate statistics and/or mathematics courses as appropriate for his/her expertise. Examples could include statistics major courses, including statistical programming and consulting, general education courses, calculus sequence courses, and mathematics major courses. The selected individual should be committed to teaching a diverse group of undergraduates, including groups historically underrepresented and groups who may have experienced discrimination. This individual should demonstrate sensitivity, knowledge, and understanding of the diverse academic, socioeconomic, gender, cultural, disability, and ethnic backgrounds of the students we serve.

The total teaching assignment each semester is approximately 12 credit hours, with a reduced semester teaching load of approximately 9 credit hours a semester for the two years. However, if successful in obtaining external funds, the successful candidate may teach fewer units. Faculty members in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics are also expected to participate in developing the Department’s curricula and to maintain a research program. In addition to teaching and research, all faculty have academic advising responsibilities, assist the department with administrative and/or committee work and program assessment, and are expected to assume campus-wide committee responsibilities. The selected individual will be committed to teaching a diverse group of undergraduates and supervising undergraduate research projects.

Review of applications will be conducted for those applications sent by 11/21/2016. Electronic submission is required; see for the full position announcement.
