Position Description

The Department of Mathematics in the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Washington (Seattle) invites applications for a full-time Assistant Teaching Professor position. This position has an anticipated start date of Autumn 2023 and will have a 9-month service period. UW faculty engage in scholarship, teaching, and service. This is not a tenure-track position; the initial appointment will be for three years, with the possibility of renewal.

The Department of Mathematics at the University of Washington is committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive academic community. We encourage applications from individuals whose backgrounds or interests align with this commitment.

The successful applicant will be expected to teach a full-time load of undergraduate courses and to participate in service to the department and the university.


A PhD (or foreign equivalent) in Mathematics or a related field is required by the start of the appointment.

Application Instructions

Applications should include a cover letter, the American Mathematical Society’s Cover Sheet for Academic Employment, a curriculum vitae, statements of diversity and teaching interests, and at least three letters of recommendation. The cover letter should express how the applicant hopes to fit into this position in our department. Review of applications will begin on December 1, 2022, and continue until the position is filled. Letters of recommendation must be received by December 31, 2022.

Applicants must include a diversity statement that addresses their contributions to diversity, equity, and inclusion. This should be a one-to-two-page statement highlighting past contributions and future plans to advance equity, diversity, and inclusion, with attention to how the applicant has supported the success of students from genders and racial and ethnic backgrounds that are underrepresented in mathematics. Applicants who have not yet had the opportunity for such experience should address their plans and how they will achieve them, and they should also address the reasons why they may not have been able to take advantage of opportunities for such work in the past.

If you have additional letters regarding teaching or research that you would like to include with your application, you may do so by uploading them via the "Additional Documents" feature on Interfolio.

Guidance for job application materials

  1. the applicant’s vision of what they hope to accomplish in the long term;
  2. concrete examples of prior activities and accomplishments, if any, that showcase the ability of the applicant to achieve their vision;
  3. immediate plans and specific strategies for addressing that vision.

The teaching statement should discuss past teaching and mentoring experience as well as plans for improvement and development.

The diversity statement should discuss past contributions and future plans to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion. These contributions could include (but are not limited to):

  • Leadership or active roles in DEI-focused organizations, e.g., Math Alliance, SACNAS, NAM, AWM, etc.
  • Creating equitable and inclusive environments in an applicant’s service, teaching, or organizational efforts (e.g., seminars or conferences)
  • Dissemination of materials or guides for creating equitable and inclusive environments
  • Intentional mentoring (formal or informal) to students from historically excluded groups
