Position Description:    

*** The account for Department of Mathematics and Statistics, Grinnell College has expired. ***

The Department of Mathematics & Statistics at Grinnell College invites applications for two tenure-track appointments in mathematics beginning Fall 2023. Assistant Professor (Ph.D.) preferred; Instructor (ABD) or Associate Professor possible. The department is expanding with the goal of offering an enhanced and diverse curriculum that includes innovative and inclusive pedagogies. We encourage candidates with teaching and research interests in any field of mathematics (pure or applied) to apply.

Founded in 1846, Grinnell enrolls approximately 1,700 students who come from across the United States and from 45 countries around the world. Grinnell is widely viewed as an institution of the first rank among the nation’s small liberal arts colleges, with an excellent faculty and a consistently accomplished and diverse student body. The college’s commitment to social justice extends to meeting the full demonstrated need of all students it accepts, and it recently instituted a no-loan policy for student financial aid packages. Its location in the nation’s heartland, its global reach, and its passionate and driven students, faculty, staff, alumni, and trustees make Grinnell a unique and exciting place to work.

The department currently consists of 12 permanent faculty positions (8 in mathematics and 4 in statistics). Our engaged and diverse majors go on to a wide variety of professions as well as graduate school in various fields (the department ranks 20th in the country, adjusted for institutional size, in the production of students who go on to earn PhDs). The teaching load is five courses over two semesters; periodically one course will be Tutorial (a topical writing/critical thinking course for first-year students, the only College-wide requirement beyond the completion of a major in an individually-advised curriculum). All mathematics faculty teach courses across the undergraduate math curriculum. In a typical year a faculty member will teach calculus courses, mid-level courses, and an upper-level course. Grinnell provides excellent support for research with students, and generous funds for faculty development and travel.

The successful candidate may, if applicable, be nominated for designation as a Clare Boothe Luce Professor: the Luce Program ( guidelines restrict Luce professorships to women who are recent or early-career PhDs and who are U.S. citizens or have permanent residency in the U.S.

Additional information about our curriculum and faculty can be found at In letters of application, candidates should discuss their interest in developing as a teacher and scholar in a highly selective undergraduate liberal arts college that emphasizes close student-faculty interaction. They should also discuss, either in the letter of application or in a separate statement, their potential to contribute to a college community that maintains a diversity of people and perspectives as one of its core values. To be assured of full consideration, all application materials should be received by October 24, 2022.

Please visit our application website at to find more details about the job and submit applications online. Candidates will need to upload: • a letter of application, • curriculum vitae, • transcripts (copies are acceptable), • a teaching statement, • a brief research statement (ideally no more than 2 pages) which includes potential or ongoing research projects with undergraduates, • and provide email addresses for three references (one or two of which should primarily address teaching).
