Location: Brooklyn College 
Full/Part Time: Full-Time

Brooklyn College, a senior College of the City University of New York (CUNY), invites applications for four Lecturer positions in the Department of Mathematics within the School of Natural and Behavioral Sciences with a starting date in August 2022. The positions require teaching a variety of undergraduate courses, with a focus on improving undergraduate success rates in the calculus sequence (college algebra, precalculus, calculus 1 and 2). Lecturers are eligible for a certificate of continuous employment (CCE) upon the sixth reappointment in the title that follows five years of continuous service in the title. 

Brooklyn College serves students from as many as 150 countries who speak over 100 languages and dialects and thus constitutes a vibrant microcosm of the rich diversity and energy that characterize the borough of Brooklyn and the greater New York City area itself. Its mission features “a special commitment to educate immigrant and first-generation college students from the diverse communities that make up our city and state.” The college ethos is strongly invested in the educational and career success of a population that encompasses a multiplicity of nationalities, ethnicities, religions, cultures and languages. We are committed to fostering a spirit of camaraderie and shared ideals across the entire spectrum of our varied constituency. By accessing a first-class and affordable college education in an inclusive and nurturing intellectual milieu, our students acquire the skills, confidence, and global mindedness that allow them to thrive in a rapidly changing, unpredictable marketplace of ideas that is increasingly mindless of borders and spans the gamut of cultures and vernaculars. 

To this end, the college seeks faculty who are eager to engage with the diversity of our student body and have a demonstrated commitment to inclusion and heterogeneity through teaching, research and/or service. We seek to recruit and retain faculty who reflect the mosaic of our student population. Successful candidates will bring their unique creativity, sensitivity, insights and perspectives to a community that welcomes innovation in scholarship and teaching. Together we will model the finest that a public urban liberal arts, sciences, and professional studies college can be for the present and future. 

The successful candidate will be part of a University and College wide cohort of faculty lecturers who engage actively with one another in pedagogical development toward achieving excellence in innovative and student-centered teaching. A commitment to teaching effectiveness and student engagement through advisement, regular office hours, and other service activities are required. 

The School of Natural and Behavioral Sciences offers both undergraduate and graduate degree programs through its nine departments – Anthropology and Archaeology, Biology, Chemistry, Computer and Information Science, Earth and Environmental Sciences, Health and Nutrition Sciences, Math, Physics, and Psychology. The Department of Mathematics is home to 17 full-time faculty as well as expert staff who are committed to equip students with the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in their professional careers. Our programs include traditional math majors (BA and BS), Actuarial, Financial, Computational mathematics, and Mathematics Education; we also support a broad range of programs outside the Department, including those in the School of Natural and Behavioral Sciences, School of Education, and the Murray Koppelman School of Business. We seek qualified individuals who can support undergraduate instruction for core courses, with a special focus on improving undergraduate success rates in the calculus sequence. 

Responsibilities include: 
  • Teach and develop curricula for undergraduate courses, including college algebra, precalculus, calculus, and post-calculus courses required for majors in mathematics and other disciplines.
  • Conduct student advisement
  • Share responsibility for committee and department assignments, performing administrative, supervisory, and other related functions.
  • Assignments may include administrative and/or other functions. 
Bachelor's degree in area(s) of expertise, and the ability to teach successfully.
