Position Description:    

We seek applicants who are dedicated to serving The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley’s student body as a non-tenured Lecturer of the School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences beginning in the 2024-2025 academic year.

The focus of duties will be effective instruction of undergraduate mathematics and statistics courses.

UTRGV serves the Rio Grande Valley and beyond via an innovative and unique multicultural education dedicated to student access and success. By championing leading research, healthcare, and application of university discoveries, we support sustainable development, community engagement, and well-being. The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) is committed to building and sustaining a highly qualified and talented faculty to pursue excellence in everything that we do, including teaching, research, and service.

Drawing on our unique identity as the leading Hispanic-Serving Institution in a bilingual and bicultural environment, UTRGV will promote student access and success by building from strength in education and creating a vibrant campus experience. By 2027, we will accelerate transformation in the Rio Grande Valley and beyond by driving meaningful advancements in research and creative works, expanding access to high-quality and affordable healthcare, and fostering authentic community engagement and integration.

UTRGV is a distributed campus, one university spanning four counties and multiple locations. Our purpose is to be a university for the entire Rio Grande Valley and beyond. Over 91% of the students enrolled at UTRGV identify as Hispanic, making UTRGV one of the top 3 universities with the highest percentage of Hispanic students.

All faculty at UTRGV are required to exhibit a commitment to Teaching Excellence. Candidates must show experience and qualifications that departmental/college accreditation requires. Teaching: The primary responsibility of Lecturers considered for this position will be teaching and collaborating with colleagues to enhance student success in undergraduate mathematics and statistics courses. Lecturers are expected to implement innovative teaching and learning strategies in the classroom and to document their impact to increase the success of first-year college students, including those who are not yet considered college-ready. Use of effective activities/pedagogy in the classroom is needed to engage students, cultivate thinking skills, and motivate interest in the subject. Faculty will be expected to integrate innovative technology and customized learning to maximize student success. Given that UTRGV is a distributed university, faculty may be required to teach online or hybrid courses or teach at different locations.

Service and Scholarship: Although the primary obligation of lecturers is to teach, service to the university and community may be a part of the faculty members’ responsibilities. This position does not provide any formal expectation or support for scholarship activities. However, UTRGV encourages all faculty, including Lecturers, to engage in scholarship.
