The Department of Mathematics & Statistics at James Madison University invites applications for one tenure-track positions in statistics at the rank of assistant professor beginning Fall 2024. We are particularly interested in candidates with interests or expertise that can contribute to growth in our new data science concentration.

James Madison University is a 22,000-student R2 state research university with a primarily undergraduate focus located in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Our energetic, collegial department is home to 55 full-time faculty in the areas of pure mathematics, applied mathematics, statistics, and mathematics education. Our programs provide meaningful learning experiences for majors and non-majors alike, both within and outside the classroom. We care about people and value high-quality undergraduate education. We currently offer bachelor's degrees in mathematics and statistics, including a concentration in data science, and minors in mathematics, statistics, and computational analytics, and are the core group offering a minor in data analytics. The teaching load is approximately 9 contact hours per semester. Scholarship is supported and valued in a variety of forms across all disciplines represented in the department. We have a strong history of supporting undergraduate research, including running a well-established NSF-funded REU program (started in 2002) and hosting a large annual undergraduate research conference (started in 2005). Department faculty are also invested in multiple outreach efforts.

Application materials should include a cover letter explicitly addressing the position and interest in undergraduate education; a curriculum vitae; a teaching statement; a research statement that includes, if appropriate, how students may be involved; a statement that addresses the candidate’s efforts toward inclusive excellence in the areas of diversity, equity, and/or justice; and the contact information of three references, at least one that addresses teaching.
