Position Summary: The Department of Mathematics at Regis University in Denver, CO invites applications for a tenure-track position in mathematics at the Assistant Professor level, beginning August 1, 2024. This year Regis was designated a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) by the US Department of Education. As such, we are committed to building a diverse faculty in order to better represent our increasingly diverse student body. We welcome applicants with diverse cultural, racial, ethnic, religious, and socioeconomic backgrounds and those with minoritized sexualities and gender identities.

We offer a B.S. in mathematics, contribute to Regis’s core curriculum, and serve the mathematical needs of students in programs across the university. The successful candidate must be prepared to teach courses for students in a range of academic programs, including core courses for non-STEM students; introductory statistics courses for business, life sciences, and pre-health students; introductory mathematics courses for students in the physical sciences and computer science; and upper division courses across the undergraduate mathematics curriculum. Specific course assignments will depend on the needs and interests of both the candidate and the department. Our faculty typically teach three courses per semester. Candidates must be dedicated to excellent undergraduate teaching. It is essential that the new faculty member be prepared to teach a racially, ethnically, socioeconomically, and religiously diverse student population. A record of scholarship and professional engagement is required for tenure, and the new faculty member should be willing to engage undergraduate students in research and other scholarly activity. Service – including academic advising; participating in the academic governance of the department, college, and university; and contributing to the university’s equity and inclusion goals, which includes Regis' HSI priorities — will be an important aspect of the new faculty member’s workload. Commitment to inclusive teaching is the most essential expectation for this position.
