The Department of Mathematics at Bucknell University seeks to hire an open-rank, tenure-track faculty member to begin in August 2014. Qualifications for the position include a Ph.D. (which is preferred to an ABD, but the latter is considered) in mathematics education or statistics education, with a strong background in the mathematical sciences. Alternative qualifications are evidence of a strong and active commitment to mathematics education with an accompanying Ph.D. in the mathematical sciences. The successful candidate will lead the K—12 mathematics education program at Bucknell University, teach the department’s mathematics education courses, and be able to teach other introductory mathematics or statistics courses. The successful candidate will have displayed a strong commitment to teaching coupled with a high potential for research.
Bucknell is a private, highly selective, primarily undergraduate university of about 3500 students. Its broad curriculum in the liberal arts is complemented by strong professional programs in engineering, education, music, and management. The University is situated in the picturesque and historic town of Lewisburg, on the banks of the Susquehanna River in central Pennsylvania. Bucknell University, an Equal Opportunity Employer, believes that students learn best in a diverse, inclusive community and is therefore committed to academic excellence through diversity in its faculty, staff, and students. Thus, we seek candidates who are committed to Bucknell’s efforts to create a climate that fosters the growth and development of a diverse student body. We welcome applications from members of groups that have been historically underrepresented in higher education.
Applications include curriculum vitae, graduate transcripts (unofficial copies accepted), a research statement, and a teaching statement. Please submit these and all other supporting materials electronically at mathjobs.org. Please arrange for three letters of recommendation (at least one of which should address teaching) to be uploaded at mathjobs.org. Applications will be reviewed beginning December 1, 2013, although later responses may be considered until the position is filled.
