Washington & Jefferson College (“W&J”) invites applications for the position of Instructor of Mathematics, beginning Fall 2022.

As a liberal arts college, W&J believes that students learn best in a supportive and inclusive environment and that they should be encouraged to make connections across their courses of study. Interdisciplinary activities by students and faculty alike are encouraged, and many students pursue dual majors, international experiences, or independent study. The Department of Mathematics fosters a strong undergraduate program that produces an average of nine majors and eight minors a year. We are passionate about teaching and active in scholarship.

The successful candidate will be expected to teach courses at the 100- and 200-levels of the undergraduate mathematics curriculum. There may be occasional opportunities to teach courses at higher levels. The standard teaching load is six courses per academic year. The candidate will also have service expectations within and outside of the Department.

We seek applicants who will teach and encourage students from diverse backgrounds, including first-generation college students, international students, students with varying mathematical preparation, and students from groups that are underrepresented in mathematics.

Requirements for the position:

  • Willingness to teach at the 100- and 200-levels of the undergraduate curriculum in mathematics, with interest in terminal mathematics courses.
  • Demonstrated experience successfully teaching college students.
  • An earned master’s degree in the mathematical sciences or allied fields by the start of appointment. All subject areas will be considered.
  • Commitment to diversity and inclusion in the classroom with preference for those whose academic or service interests demonstrate this value.
  • Commitment to active learning within mathematics and best practices of mathematical pedagogy. 

Applicants should submit a letter of interest, three letters of recommendation, a graduate transcript, a curriculum vitae, and a statement about teaching at an undergraduate liberal arts college. Application materials should explain the candidate’s ideas and experience regarding support of students from underrepresented groups. At least two letters of recommendation should specifically address teaching experience. All materials should be uploaded to MathJobs.org.

To ensure full consideration, applications should be submitted by December 1, 2021.
