The Muhlenberg College Department of Mathematics and Computer Science seeks to fill the Truman L. Koehler, Sr., Professorship in Mathematics at the Associate Professor or Professor level to begin in the fall of 2020. An applicant must have a Ph.D. in mathematics, applied mathematics or statistics and currently hold the rank of Associate Professor or higher.

The Truman L. Koehler, Sr., Professorship in Mathematics is a full-time, tenure-track endowed position at the College and honors Dr. Koehler, perpetuating the high ideals in teaching that he exemplified. Dr. Koehler epitomized the academic ideal of Muhlenberg College’s faculty and those values of a small, liberal arts college. His dedication to the College and to his craft was demonstrated by 45 years as an inspired teacher of mathematics. Dr. Koehler also served his discipline in activities with professional societies. The Koehler Professor must successfully balance excellent commitment to teaching, research and college service. In order to meet these high expectations, the Koehler Professor will have a reduced teaching load of two courses per semester.
