The University of San Diego, an independent Catholic University, seeks applicants for two tenure-track Assistant Professor positions in the Department of Mathematics to begin September 2022. The standard teaching load is 3 undergraduate courses per semester, with the potential for a reduction from internal or external research grants. As of this posting, we plan to conduct interviews at the Joint Mathematics Meetings in January 2022. 

The Department of Mathematics strives to create a mathematics community where everyone is welcome.

This year, the University is hiring around three cluster themes and we are looking for candidates whose research, pedagogy, and/or community engagement approaches are strongly related to at least one of these themes: Climate Change and Environmental Justice, Technology and the Human Experience, Borders and Social Justice. Cluster cohorts will have opportunities to collaborate with colleagues. More information can be found here: https://www.sandiego.edu/cas/about/diversity-equity-inclusion/hiring.php 

Successful candidates will:
