Position Description:    

The Director of Quantitative Reasoning is a new and innovative position housed within the Department of Mathematics that, to some degree, the candidate will help define. Directorship duties range from supporting/mentoring faculty instruction, leading a faculty team dedicated to improvement of instruction, evaluating effectiveness of initiatives, conducting and publishing research related to initiatives, pursuing external funding in relation to these goals, and coordinating instruction and professional development in conjunction with ongoing university-wide improvement efforts. The directorship comes with a substantial teaching reduction. The faculty appointment can be at any level, including instructor or lecturer in a renewable term appointment, tenure-track assistant professor, or tenured associate or full professor. A Master’s degree in mathematics, education, or closely related field is required for this position, but a doctorate is strongly preferred (and required for a tenure-track or tenured position). Salary is highly competitive and commensurate with qualifications and experience and will be supplemented with an annual director stipend.

Mathematics is one of the largest departments at UNO, both in number of faculty and in diversity of mission. We offer a wide range of concentrations and a rich array of student opportunities in and out of the classroom. We seek a candidate who can bring best practices of student success to our quantitative reasoning classes, within the context of the university’s mission and values.

As both a Metropolitan University of distinction and a Carnegie Doctoral Research institution, UNO transforms and improves the quality of life locally, nationally, and globally.
