Position Description:    

The Department of Mathematics at The University of Arizona invites applications for tenure-track/tenured positions at the Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor level. We are accepting applications in any research area in mathematics, mathematics education, or statistics. Members of the department create, communicate, and apply mathematics of the highest caliber through activities such as internationally recognized research and graduate education, award winning undergraduate programs, and extensive outreach to local schools. The department's faculty includes two Regents' Professors, two University Distinguished Professors, and numerous recipients of national and international awards. Over the last five years, a large percentage of the faculty has been awarded grants and contracts from external funding agencies, with total awards averaging about $3 million per year.

The department offers PhD, MS, and MA programs in Mathematics and Mathematics Education, and it provides major contributions to the Graduate Interdisciplinary Degree Programs in Applied Mathematics and Statistics. Faculty members are expected to maintain an active research program, to participate in both undergraduate and graduate education, and to carry out advising duties, committee assignments, and contribute to mentoring students, including those from underrepresented backgrounds. The official teaching load in the Department is twelve units for the academic year. However, the normal teaching load for research active faculty is nine units for the academic year (the equivalent of three one-semester courses each year).

The faculty member will also participate in outreach and contribute to departmental, college, and university service. In these and other ways, the faculty member will help to develop innovative approaches to enhancing student engagement, increasing diversity, and expanding collaborations with community and business partners.

Candidates are expected to have a PhD by the time of appointment. Candidates are expected to have excellent research potential or record and a strong commitment to teaching.

Review of applications will begin October 1, 2018, and will continue until the positions are filled. Outstanding UA benefits include health, dental, vision, and life insurance; paid vacation, sick leave, and holidays; UA/ASU/NAU tuition reduction for the employee and qualified family members; and access to UA recreation and cultural activities.

At the University of Arizona, we value our inclusive climate because we know that diversity in experiences and perspectives is vital to advancing innovation, critical thinking, solving complex problems, and creating and inclusive academic community. We translate these values into action by seeking individuals who have experience and expertise working with diverse students, colleagues and constituencies. Because we seek a workforce with a wide range of perspectives and experiences, we encourage diverse candidates to apply, including people of color, women, veterans, and individuals with disabilities. As an Employer of National Service, we also welcome alumni of AmeriCorps, Peace Corps, and other national service programs and others who will help us advance our Inclusive Excellence initiative aimed at creating a university that values student, staff, and faculty engagement in addressing issues of diversity and inclusiveness.
