The Department of Mathematics and Statistics invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor beginning August 1, 2015, subject to budgetary approval. Interested individuals who currently hold a rank higher than Assistant are also encouraged to apply, as the Dean may take into account their current position and experience.

We are seeking collegial, energetic and innovative individuals who have an outstanding ability to teach at the undergraduate level and communicate effectively with students both in and out of the classroom, are able to instruct across a broad range of the undergraduate mathematics curriculum, and can develop new and innovative programs and courses. In addition, we are seeking individuals who have a strong commitment to service within the department, the university at large and the community. We are primarily a teaching-oriented university and department but the successful candidate will also be expected to maintain a program of scholarly activity or research, preferably one which involves students, or is community-linked.

The successful candidate must have a PhD in Statistics (or one near completion), demonstrate excellence in teaching at the undergraduate level, and demonstrate potential in scholarly activity or research. Applicants from any area will be considered, but preference will be given to those with expertise in Data Analysis.

How to Apply
Candidates should submit a curriculum vitae; evidence of teaching excellence (student evaluations if available); one-page statement of teaching philosophy including examples of innovative approaches to teaching and course design if available; one- page statement of proposed research program or scholarly activity, and names and contact information for three referees.
