Position Description:    

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Maine invites applications for an academic year appointment as Lecturer in Mathematics Education, with an anticipated start date of August 30, 2021.

We are especially interested in applicants who can contribute to the University of Maine’s commitment to an inclusive and diverse student body that includes first-generation and low-income students and those from groups that are underrepresented in mathematics, such as women and minorities.

A graduate degree (master’s level or higher) in mathematics, mathematics education, statistics or a related area is required by date of hire; some preference may be given to candidates with graduate degrees in the three specified areas. Demonstrated effective teaching and effective written and oral communication skills are also required. Responsibilities include teaching five semester-long courses annually, or equivalent. They also include developing the department’s interactions and collaborations with high schools, and our other initiatives linked with the transition from secondary education to university studies; classes to be taught may include some taught in partnership with regional high schools or otherwise directed at pre-college students. The position has a 10.5-month annual duration consistent with the academic year in regional high schools, allowing for expected contributions to assessment, collection of data, and institutional research relevant to the interface between secondary education and college mathematics. Service to the department, college and university is expected.

To apply, submit a cover letter, teaching and research statements, a curriculum vitae and at least three letters of reference, at least one of which should address your teaching. Your curriculum vitae should fully describe your qualifications and experiences with specific reference to the required and preferred qualifications. Your cover letter should describe your background and how you meet the job requirements as described above, especially with regard to our activities in statistics. These materials must be submitted through www.mathjobs.org, and in addition all materials other than the letters of reference must also be submitted via HireTouch at the webpage https://umaine.hiretouch.com/job-details?jobID=66808&job=lecturer-in-mathematics-education, where instructions for submitting your application can be found.
