Dickinson College is seeking applications for a tenure-track dual-appointment in mathematics and data analytics at the assistant professor level commencing in the fall of 2024, pending approval and funding. The candidate’s home department will be the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, but they will have a joint appointment with the interdisciplinary Department of Data Analytics. Candidates are required to possess a Ph.D. in mathematics, statistics, or a related field by the time of appointment. A dedicated commitment to delivering exceptional undergraduate instruction, an understanding of the collaborative ethos of a liberal arts institution, and the capability to engage effectively with a diverse student population are essential qualities for the position. The candidate must also be enthusiastic about teaching a broad range of courses throughout our mathematics and statistics curriculum, especially courses that support the college’s new data analytics major. Tenure-track faculty teach five course equivalents per year, advise students, pursue their own scholarly research, and mentor undergraduate research initiatives.

Dickinson College is a highly selective four-year, independent liberal arts college with approximately 2,100 students. It is located in historic Carlisle, Pennsylvania, which is 20 minutes west of Harrisburg and a two-hour drive from Baltimore, Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia. The faculty prides itself on fostering meaningful student-faculty interactions, implementing innovative pedagogy, and promoting student-faculty research. Institutional support for research, travel to conferences, and professional development is available. The college is committed to building a representative and diverse faculty, administrative staff, and student body. The ability to create inclusive learning environments for an increasingly diverse student body will be an important characteristic of the successful candidate. We encourage applications from all qualified persons.

Applications must be submitted electronically at https://jobs.dickinson.edu/postings/7163. Applications must include a cover letter, CV, statement on teaching philosophy, statement on research accomplishments and future plans, copies of graduate transcripts, and three letters of recommendation, at least one of which addresses the candidate’s teaching experience.
