We are seeking candidates who demonstrate a clear commitment to undergraduate education and research in a diverse community.

A complete application consists of a letter of application explaining the candidate’s interest in and fit with the position, a curriculum vitae, a statement of teaching philosophy that addresses teaching to a diverse student audience, a research summary that addresses how the candidate will involve undergraduate students in their research, and three letters of reference, at least one of which must address teaching effectiveness.

Please submit all application materials through MathJobs.
