The School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences (SoMSS) at Arizona State University (ASU) invites applications for a tenure-track position in mathematics education at the rank of assistant professor. The anticipated start date is fall 2018.

Applicants are required to have a Ph.D. in mathematics education or in the mathematical or statistical sciences with a research emphasis in mathematics education by August 10, 2018. Candidates must have demonstrated potential for excellence in research and instruction at all academic levels.

The desired qualifications include a strong background in mathematics, a documented record of excellence in research, grant support and instruction, and demonstrated success working with diverse student and/or faculty populations. The successful candidate will be expected to conduct research on mathematics teaching or learning, publish in the area of mathematics education, provide quality teaching of undergraduate and graduate courses, mentor graduate students, attract significant research funding, and participate in on-campus interdisciplinary activities and appropriate professional service.

SoMSS currently has 53 full-time tenured or tenure-track faculty members and approximately 85 supported Ph.D. students (including 15 mathematics education students).
