Each postdoc is assigned a teaching mentor from the AMS faculty who guides the fellow in professional development as an educator. Postdocs will collaborate with AMS faculty in the improvement and delivery of core courses with an emphasis on active learning.

MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS: This position is intended for recent PhD candidates. Applicants must possess a PhD in mathematics, statistics, or related field by August 2022. Applicants must have experience in teaching mathematics at the collegiate level.
