School of Mathematics, Georgia Tech: Academic Professional

The School of Mathematics at the Georgia Institute of Technology invites applications for at least one Academic Professional position in mathematics, with an anticipated start date in mid 2020. These positions are non-tenure-track 12-month faculty appointments, and are subject to annual evaluation.

Georgia Tech has recently adapted its academic professional appointments in alignment with its commitment to high quality education and training at all levels. This position has the possibility of on-going annual renewal, particularly for candidates who aspire to excellence and leadership in these areas as described at: http://www.policylibrary.gatech.edu/faculty-handbook/3.2.2-non-tenure-track-academic-faculty-members-hiring-and-promotion-guidelines.

The role of Academic Professionals is vital to advancing our undergraduate teaching in the School and supporting our educational and training missions through academic administration. The position includes teaching assignments each semester along with administrative support of our programs. Additional details about the work of Academic Professionals in the School is available at: http://www.math.gatech.edu/employment-opportunities..

Academic Professionals in the School of Mathematics have typically been assigned duties from the following: a) teaching 1-2 courses per semester, including the summer. These courses will usually be selected from our 1000- or 2000-level offerings, and/or from other teaching commitments including pre-calculus, distance learning, and international programs; b) administrative support for undergraduate teaching, in the form of advising, scheduling, course coordination, curation of materials, management, implementation and oversight of use of technology in courses, and/or support for curriculum improvements; c) Participation in the School’s instructional management team; d) Other duties assigned in alignment with the School’s needs and individuals’ strengths. These may be selected from the following; support for integration of technology in courses, administration, assessment, and innovative curricula; coordination with faculty on delivery of courses tracking and collecting data in support of School programs; outreach and communications; support for TA and new instructor training; support for curriculum development and use of innovative teaching techniques; support for professional development of students and junior researchers; advising and administration for student support. This list is likely to evolve together with future needs and priorities of the School of Mathematics and of Georgia Tech.

The successful candidates will have demonstrated excellent teaching credentials, with clear potential for taking on considerable responsibility in teaching, educational leadership, and administrative tasks. Candidates will possess attention to detail, strong communication skills, and the ability to work well with faculty, staff, students, as well as the broader university community.
