Open-rank Lecturer-track Department of Mathematics Indiana University Bloomington

Position: The Department of Mathematics at Indiana University Bloomington invites applications for two open rank lecturer, non-tenure-track positions beginning Fall 2024 with initial 3-year appointment and annual review leading to promotion and long-term contract at lecturer rank and long-term contract at senior lecturer rank. The appointments will be as a Lecturer or Senior Lecturer, depending on experience. Candidates will also be considered the role of Assistant Director of General Education Mathematical Modeling (ADGEMM). Lecturers receive an annual stipend for professional development. There are also opportunities to apply for paid summer teaching and curriculum development work.

Lecturer-track responsibilities: Primary responsibilities will include instruction and support for instruction. Most of the instruction will be in a diverse set of introductory courses including precalculus, finite mathematics, and calculus. Instructional support duties will include: a regular rotation of course coordination, curriculum development, and supporting the professional growth of graduate and undergraduate student academic appointees. The nominal teaching load is six courses per academic year. Lecturers receive course releases for coordination and other administrative service.

ADGEMM responsibilities: Together with the Director of General Education Mathematical Modeling, Dr. Corrin Clarkson, the ADGEMM will, in addition to the above, lead and support faculty in course reform and development and in restructuring the introductory mathematics program. Current projects include creating alternatives to remedial courses, facilitating weekly professional development lunches for postdocs and lecturers, and developing a new course for students in the Kelly School of Business.

Department culture: The candidates hired to fill the positions will join a dynamic team of faculty. This team has significant autonomy to reconceive our approach to introductory coursework and substantial support for curriculum revision. Instructors are supported through course coordination, and course coordinators support each other through the Math General Education Committee. Our faculty also benefit from department supported opportunities for camaraderie and collaboration. There is daily departmental tea, seasonal departmental parties and picnics as well as smaller gatherings for board games and walks.

The minimum requirements are a Masters or MAT degree in mathematics and at least four years’ experience as instructor of record of mathematics courses in a high school, college, or university setting. A commitment to excellence in teaching, student success, teamwork, and ongoing improvement is required. We seek candidates with the courage and curiosity to pursue novel and innovative methods of thinking and teaching; a commitment to inclusive and student-centered, evidence-based pedagogy; and the administrative, organizational, and mentoring skills required to interact with and lead complex teams.
