Birmingham-Southern College invites applications for two tenure-track Assistant Professors in Mathematics beginning fall 2017. The area of specialty is open for both, though preference for one position will be given to those in applied fields. Candidates who are able to contribute to our new Creative and Applied Computing program are especially welcomed.
Birmingham-Southern College (BSC) is a selective residential liberal arts college enrolling approximately 1300 undergraduate students.

BSC is located just minutes from downtown Birmingham, the largest city in Alabama and a leading hub for banking and medical research in the Southeast. There are six institutions of higher education within a short commute. The community sponsors a symphony, ballet, opera, and several museums as well as annual art, music, and film festivals. There are numerous opportunities for outdoor activities within the city limits, and Birmingham is also within an easy day’s drive of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Great Smoky Mountains, and the Gulf of Mexico.
Applicants should hold a Ph.D. in mathematics or a closely related field by August 2017. Providing an outstanding undergraduate education is the primary mission of the College, and applicants must demonstrate a commitment to excellence in undergraduate teaching. The typical teaching load is 3-1-3. The successful candidate will also be expected to engage in continued scholarly activity appropriate to a faculty member at a liberal arts college. All faculty are expected to participate fully in the life of the department and College through activities such as academic advising and committee service.
Submit letter of application, curriculum vitae, statement of teaching philosophy, statement of research interests, copy of graduate transcripts, and three letters of recommendation (two of which should address teaching) through MathJobs.org. Questions may be addressed to Dr. Jeffrey Barton at firstname.lastname@example.org. Screening of applications will begin December 1, 2016. Preliminary interviews will be held at the Joint Mathematics Meetings, and candidates are asked to indicate their availability for such an interview.
