The Pennsylvania State University’s College of Earth and Mineral Sciences (EMS), in collaboration with the Eberly College of Science, seeks a non-tenure-line faculty candidate to join the dynamic and inclusive team of faculty and staff in the newly renovated Ryan Family Student Center (RFSC), with a joint appointment in the Eberly College of Science Department of Mathematics. Reporting to the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Education in EMS, the final candidate will teach the college’s undergraduate calculus I and II courses, Math 140G and Math 141G, and will manage the Center’s learning support in general mathematics, providing lesser amounts of learning support in introductory chemistry and physics. Math 140G and 141G are designed to foster greater student engagement and learning by using examples relevant to EMS disciplines along with innovative assessment methods. Math instruction will be coordinated with the Eberly College of Science, and engagement with the Department of Mathematics is expected. Learning support is provided by a team of undergraduate EMS students collaborating with this position. Additionally, the successful applicant will participate in EMS’s first-year engagement experience (TEEMS), meet with potential students or parents, attend Academic College Welcome Sessions, and carry out other duties related to the recruitment and retention process, such as presenting at the EMS Exposition (EMEX). The individual serving in this role will be an integral member of our RFSC team, helping to foster a sense of community and inclusivity in our Center, and must excel at working with a diverse group of students as both a teacher and mentor.

This position requires a Master’s Degree or higher in Mathematics and evidence of teaching effectiveness. Knowledge of or interest in science or engineering disciplines is strongly preferred. The ability to maintain some evening hours in the Ryan Family Student Center is required.

This is a 36-week non-tenure line faculty appointment, funded for three years from the date of hire, with an excellent possibility of renewal. Non-tenure line academic rank will be commensurate with the successful candidate’s competencies, education, and experience. The successful candidate will be expected to start in time to teach Math 140G in the Fall 2023 semester at University Park. For full consideration, interested applicants should submit a cover letter, current curriculum vitae, statement of teaching philosophy, and the names and contact information for at least three references. The College of Earth and Mineral Sciences takes an active role in building a talented, inclusive, and culturally competent workforce. We understand that our shared future is guided by basic principles of fairness, mutual respect, and commitment to each other. Applicants should also provide evidence, either woven through their application or as a separate diversity statement, of a commitment to fostering diversity, equity, inclusive excellence, belonging, and engagement, which creates an inclusive environment in their workplace.

Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. For additional information on the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences, please go to https://www.ems.psu.edu.
