Position Description:    

DEPARTMENT OF MATHEMATICS Full-time Lecturer (non-tenure-track)

The Department of Mathematics at Tufts University invites applications for a full-time, non-tenure track faculty position at the rank of Lecturer, starting September 2021. The lecturer will have a 3-3 load, where responsibilities in course development, organization, and coordination may be arranged as course equivalents; for instance, 3-2 teaching plus one semester of additional responsibilities might be a typical assignment. There is some flexibility to teach across the undergraduate curriculum (and to propose graduate courses if desired), but our principal area of current need is probability and statistics for majors and non-majors. The faculty member’s additional responsibilities may include mentorship of undergraduate and graduate students and administration of multi-section courses. Lecturers are expected to participate in department, school, and university-wide service. There will be opportunities for (optional) teaching and mentoring activities in the summer.

Qualifications The successful candidate must hold a doctoral degree in a relevant field, such as mathematics or applied mathematics, by the time the position will begin. University-level teaching and advising experience is required. The successful candidate will demonstrate a commitment to creative and student-centered teaching as well as a track record of outreach and mentorship with diverse student populations. Applications should have a versatile teaching portfolio and demonstrate the ability and willingness to teach courses in multiple areas, especially probability and statistics.

Application Instructions All applications must be submitted via mathjobs at https://www.mathjobs.org/jobs/list/16713. Applicants should submit the following: a) cover letter; b) statement of teaching and advising experience; c) a list of courses that the applicant would like to teach, with a short description of the proposed pedagogical approach for each; and d) curriculum vitae. The teaching statement should address course development experience and can address research to the extent that it will provide opportunities for advising student research projects. In addition, applicants should arrange to have three confidential letters of recommendation submitted directly to Mathjobs, with at least two focused on teaching.

Questions about the application process should be directed to Department Chair Kim Ruane at Kim.Ruane@tufts.edu. The deadline for application is December 31, 2020.
