The Amherst College Department of Mathematics and Statistics invites applications for a full-time tenure-track or tenured appointment in mathematics that will begin July 1, 2018. Within the last decade, Amherst College has profoundly transformed its student body in terms of socioeconomic status, ethnicity, and nationality, among other areas. We seek applicants who can teach and encourage students of diverse backgrounds, including first-generation college students, international students, and students with varying mathematical preparation.

Responsibilities include teaching two courses per semester, supervising undergraduate theses, and supporting the mathematics program at the college. Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in mathematics or a related field, have broad intellectual interests and a strong commitment to research, and be passionate about teaching mathematics to undergraduates at all levels. We seek colleagues actively engaged in research who can teach a wide range of courses and help foster the mathematics community at Amherst.

This is an open-rank search. An appointment at the assistant, or possibly, the associate professor rank, will be tenure track. A senior appointment would be with tenure. Any appointment with tenure will be contingent upon a tenure review.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, research statement, teaching statement, and at least three letters of recommendation (including at least one that specifically addresses teaching), to MathJobs.Org. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled, but all applications received by December 1, 2017, will be guaranteed consideration. See
