POSITION

Assistant Professor of Mathematics

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB) invites applications for a tenure-track position in Mathematics at the Assistant Professor level to commence in August 2018. The successful candidate will use evidence-based pedagogies to teach and develop curriculum in the Mathematics major and minor. He/she will also build a research program and develop opportunities for students to conduct research and participate in internships to support CSUMB’s strong commitment to student success.

CSUMB will be implementing a new co-requisite model where under-prepared students are able to enroll in a general education mathematics course with the requirement they also enroll in a corresponding developmental course that provides the additional academic support needed to be successful. The successful candidate will collaborate with other mathematics faculty to oversee the co-requisite components and monitor their efficacy in meeting the needs of underprepared students.

CSUMB is a comprehensive public university committed to serving the diverse people of California, especially the working class, historically underserved, and low income populations. A federally designated Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI), CSUMB attracts about one-third of its undergraduate students from the local region. The university values an educational environment of cultural and linguistic diversity and gender equity; ethical reflection and practice; effective and experimental use of technologies as resources to people and catalysts for learning; and the integration of cross-disciplinary models enabling students, faculty and staff to engage in innovative instruction and coordinated service learning. The curriculum is organized around student learning outcomes. It is global in perspective, and of sufficient breadth and depth to meet local, regional, and statewide needs, specifically those of both isolated rural communities and inner-city populations. The campus is located on Monterey Bay, 100 miles south of San Francisco.

As a University that educates students of various ethnic and cultural backgrounds, we value ethnic and cultural backgrounds, and a diverse faculty and staff. CSUMB welcomes applicants who are knowledgeable about and interested in working within a cross-cultural learning environment.
