The Department of Mathematics at the University of Florida invites applications for a Visiting Assistant Professor in all areas of mathematics, to begin August 16, 2018. Candidates must have a substantial interest in STEM education reform; in particular, the department seeks to attract individuals with experience in active learning environments such as flipped classrooms. This is an exciting time for the University of Florida as it seeks to expand its faculty ranks in an effort to reduce class sizes across campus. The Department of Mathematics will participate in this initiative by moving from large-lecture calculus courses to smaller, more interactive environments. The individual hired into this position will be expected to engage with other faculty to bring this goal to fruition via curriculum development and actual instruction. The teaching assignment is 3 courses, 2 courses in the fall semester and 1 course in the spring semester, and participation in the research activities of the department is expected. Some additional support for travel is possible. A Ph.D. in the mathematical sciences or the equivalent is required. Candidates with strong promise in research and teaching are encouraged to apply.

The salary is competitive and commensurate with qualifications and experience, and includes a full benefits package. This is a one-year time-limited appointment.

The Department is committed to creating an environment that affirms diversity across a variety of dimensions, including ethnicity/race, gender identity and expression. We particularly welcome applicants who can contribute to such an environment through their scholarship, teaching, mentoring, and professional service. The university and greater Gainesville community enjoy a diversity of cultural events, restaurants, year-round outdoor recreational activity, and social opportunities.

For full consideration, applications must be submitted online at http://explore.jobs.ufl.edu/cw/en-us/listing/506752 and must include: (1) a cover letter, (2) a curriculum vitae, (3) a research statement, (4) a teaching statement and (5) a list of three references. After initial review, letters of recommendation will be requested for selected applicants. The Search Committee will begin reviewing applications on April 9, 2018 and continue accepting applications until the position is filled. All candidates for employment are subject to a pre-employment screening which includes a review of criminal records, reference checks, verification of education, and verification of eligibility for employment in the United States.

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 education institution outside of the United States are required to 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.
