Teaching Assistant Professor of Mathematics - Eberly College of Arts and Sciences- 21206


The School of Mathematical and Data Sciences at West Virginia University invites applications for two Teaching Assistant Professor positions in Mathematics starting August 11, 2023. These are 9-month, full-time, non-tenure track positions with full benefits. Teaching Assistant Professor appointments have renewable terms of up to three years, with no limit on the number of terms. Teaching Assistant Professors are eligible for promotion, e.g., to Teaching Associate Professor and Teaching Professor; however, promotion to senior ranks is not a requirement for institutional commitment and career stability. The outstanding candidates will join other teaching faculty in the Institute of Mathematics Learning which supports the University’s teaching mission through its commitment to student success by utilizing innovative teaching practices, offering exceptional student support, and providing quality and equitable mathematics instruction at the calculus level and below.

The School of Mathematical and Data Sciences includes 25 tenured and tenure-track faculty, several postdoctoral researchers, about 65 graduate students, and offers undergraduate, masters and doctoral degrees in Mathematics. The School offers excellent collaboration opportunities in mathematical biology, fluid dynamics, image processing, and within the new Data Science program. Mathematics faculty have also been engaged in strong collaborations with the WVU theoretical physics program and with the WVU Rockefeller Neuroscience Institute.


The successful candidates must have 1) a Ph.D. or equivalent doctoral degree in Mathematics, Mathematics Education, or a closely related field such as Statistics; 2) demonstrate a potential for excellence in teaching high-enrollment, multi-section courses primarily below the calculus level; 3) the ability to use technological tools such as student response systems (e.g. iClicker), online graphing utilities (e.g. Desmos), or courseware packages (e.g. WebAssign, mymathlab) to support instruction; 4) the ability to work with colleagues in a collaborative teaching environment; and 5) an active interest in improving the effectiveness of teaching methods, especially to support the success rate of at-risk student populations. The teaching assignment is 4 courses or course equivalents per semester.

To apply, please visit upload (a) a curriculum vitae; (b) cover letter; (c) a teaching statement; (d) a list of three references with complete contact information. Candidates who are invited for on-campus interviews will be asked for letters of recommendation and may be asked for additional materials at a later date.

The screening process will begin January 9th, 2023 and continue until the position is filled. For more information, please visit our website (mathanddata.wvu.edu) or contact the chair of the search committee, Dr. Lori Ogden (lori.ogden@mail.wvu.edu).
