real analysis, numerical analysis, differential equations, combinatorics, statistics, biostatistics, data science, and other courses across the department’s curricula.

The department offers two undergraduate degrees: BS Mathematics and BS Statistics, as well as supports students in mathematics education. The department has a small graduate program with an MA in mathematics and an area of emphasis in Statistics. Most courses in the MA program are joint upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses. The MA program offers hybrid courses, with a mix of in-person and virtual students, and occasional evening courses, in a planned rotation. Marshall University is a student-centered research university, R2 Carnegie classification, of around 12,000 undergraduate and graduate students, located in Huntington, WV.

In your cover letter, please include a description of how you would support these students or other types of diversity.

The department also seeks candidates who will contribute to the University’s general education curriculum and its emphasis on using high-impact teaching practices, particularly those affiliated with one (or more) of the institution’s pedagogical initiatives (e.g., Community-based Learning, Critical Thinking, First Year Seminar, Writing Across Curriculum, etc.).
