As part of an initiative to modernize and improve lower-division instruction, the Department of Mathematics at the University of Florida invites applications for two non-tenure-track, nine-month, time-limited, renewable lecturer positions to begin fall semester 2017. Candidates must have substantial interest and expertise in STEM education reform with a particular focus on College Algebra and Quantitative Reasoning curricula. The individuals who fill these positions will be tasked with updating existing courses in these areas and implementing innovative teaching practices in a variety of formats, including coordinated large lecture, flipped classrooms, and online instruction. This represents a unique and exciting opportunity to engage in a real reform effort as the successful candidates will be asked to exercise creativity in writing new syllabuses and developing metrics to measure their success.

Required qualifications include a Ph.D. in mathematics or in mathematics education with substantial coursework in mathematics (at least 18 credit hours of graduate mathematics courses) and a record of success in curriculum development, especially in courses below the level of calculus. The salary is competitive and commensurate with qualifications and experience and includes a full benefits package.

Applications must be submitted through Careers at

http://explore.jobs.ufl.edu/cw/en-us/listing/00008930 or 00020303

and must include: (1) a letter summarizing the applicant's qualifications, (2) a complete curriculum vitae, and (3) a list of 3 references. In addition, names and email address for three references must be provided on the application. An email will be sent automatically to your references, requesting them to upload their letter. The Search Committee will begin reviewing applications on February 1, 2017, and continue accepting applications until the position is 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 must be evaluated by a professional credentialing service provider approved by National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES), which can be found at http://www.naces.org/. The University of Florida is an equal opportunity institution dedicated to building a broadly diverse and inclusive faculty and staff. Searches are conducted in accordance with Florida's Sunshine Law.
