Position Description:    

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the downtown Atlanta campus of Georgia State University invites applications for a lecturer position in mathematics and statistics beginning August 2019 pending budgetary approval. The ideal candidate should be able to demonstrate excellence in teaching a diverse body of students, possess effective communication skills in classroom teaching and in one-on-one settings, and have a demonstrated commitment to the success of undergraduate students, preferably in a large public university setting with a diverse student population. Candidates should have a strong background in mathematics or statistics and a Ph.D. in mathematics, statistics, or a related field is required. Preference will be given to those candidates who have at least one year of effective full-time college/university teaching experience in mathematics and/or statistics, as demonstrated in the application materials or during a campus visit.

Duties will consist of teaching 12 contact hours per semester, as well as service. Lecturers typically teach primarily lower level undergraduate mathematics and statistics classes including, but not limited to, precalculus and calculus courses. While a lecturer position is a non-tenure track position, lecturers are critical to the success of the department. A lecturer position is renewable each year in the first five years, subject to satisfactory annual evaluations and a third-year review. After this time, the position has the potential for promotion to Senior Lecturer, and then to Principal Senior Lecturer after an additional five years.

Georgia State University is a national leader in innovative instruction and the academic success of diverse populations, and the Department of Mathematics and Statistics is at the heart of many of these successes. The department currently consists of 26 tenure track faculty, 11 lecturers (of various ranks), and 3 academic professionals. The department is in charge of 11 core courses and teaches the 2nd most lecture credit hours of all departments on the downtown campus. The department offers B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in mathematics and statistics.

Applications should be submitted directly to http://www.mathjobs.org.
