 Colorado College is a residential liberal arts college with about 2,000 students. Located one-hour south of Denver, the city of Colorado Springs offers many cultural and recreational activities in the foothills of the Rocky Mountain Region. The College actively promotes a dynamic, inclusive, and equitable environment in which students and employees of diverse backgrounds, cultures, and perspectives can learn and work.  Strong candidates should share the college’s and department’s deep commitment to antiracism (Antiracism at CC) and be committed to the principles of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) in all facets of life at the college.

The department fosters a supportive, inclusive, and equitable learning community of faculty and students who share a passion for statistics. It is our goal to provide a nurturing learning environment that stimulates growth and intellectual exploration. Colorado College is a nationally recognized liberal arts college with a distinctive academic calendar called the Block Plan, in which professors teach, and students take, one course at a time. Professors teach five of the eight blocks in an academic year and devote one block to supervising capstone projects. Each block is three and a half weeks long.

Applicants should describe their interest in teaching statistics in a liberal arts environment in their cover letter. Applications should also contain: a teaching statement including a discussion of your potential to incorporate active learning strategies; a research statement discussing your research interests and potential for including undergraduate students in your work; a diversity statement detailing your potential to contribute to DEI at Colorado College through your teaching, research, and/or service; graduate school transcripts, and three confidential letters of recommendation (request that writers submit separately). At least one letter should comment on teaching experience and potential. Applicants should provide evidence of teaching effectiveness, if available. Applications from candidates who have reached ABD status will be considered.

The department plans to conduct initial interviews in November, and to invite several top candidates for interviews in late November or December 2020. Review of applications will begin on October 26, 2020; to ensure consideration, your application should be completed by that date.
