Visiting Faculty Position in Mathematics

Bennington College

Job Type: Full Time

Location: Bennington, Vermont, United States

Bennington College invites applicants for a full-time one-year temporary faculty position in mathematics, beginning in Fall 2022. Bennington College is a small liberal arts institution with a deep tradition of creativity and student-centered learning. Faculty members have the opportunity to creatively teach small, interactive classes, and to bridge their work across disciplines.

The position would be of interest to early career mathematicians interested in pursuing a career in liberal arts. Mentoring in teaching will be provided. While we do not expect research activity, the position is structured to allow for research to continue. The successful candidate should be strongly committed to teaching within a liberal arts environment. A PhD in mathematics, applied mathematics, or statistics is strongly preferred.

Bennington College is a small residential liberal arts college in southern Vermont, long distinguished for its progressive approach to higher education. The College was founded in 1932 on the principle of active engagement in learning, which manifests in individualized plans of study developed by students together with faculty. Bennington's open curricular structures facilitate innovative teaching across traditional disciplinary boundaries, and small class sizes enable student-centered and engaged learning within the classroom. Candidates that can demonstrate excellence in teaching are especially encouraged to apply.

Bennington serves a student population inclusive of members of ethnically/racially diverse, international, LGBTQIA+, and disability communities as well as diverse gender identities, socioeconomic backgrounds, religions, and political beliefs. Our staff and faculty also reflect diverse and intersecting backgrounds and identities. All employees are expected to be respectful and responsive to these differences in the service of building community that promotes student and employee success. Each individual (faculty, staff and student) will be accountable for upholding these values. The College's approach to pluralism and inclusivity—both as fields of inquiry and practice—is to prioritize flexible thought, and to invite the examination of access, value, power, and privilege through its institutional policies and areas of study. We encourage applications from women and/or candidates from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds and diverse realms of interest and experience to apply.

Candidates should apply online by submitting the following: a) cover letter; b) curriculum vitae; c) teaching statement, including pedagogical approaches to anti-racism, equity, and inclusion; and d) contact information for three references (at least two of which address the applicant's teaching). Review of applications will begin March 11, 2022, and will continue until the position is filled. This position requires the successful completion and acceptable results of a background check.
