The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Victoria invites applications for two Assistant Teaching Professor positions, leading to continuing positions, to commence August 1, 2015, or as soon as possible after that date. Successful applicants will be welcomed into a stimulating, collegial department with an outstanding record in both research and teaching, and a University community that is strongly supportive of mathematical sciences training across a wide range of disciplines.
A Ph.D. in Mathematics or Statistics is preferred, although outstanding candidates holding a Master's degree may be considered. Successful applicants will demonstrate a passion for teaching and will provide documented evidence of excellence in the delivery of mathematical sciences courses at the first- and second-year level. Demonstrated ability to teach a wide range of Mathematics or Statistics courses will be considered an asset. For one of the two positions, a Ph.D. degree in Statistics and substantial teaching experience in Statistics courses are preferred. Successful applicants will be expected to teach and co-ordinate multi-section courses, to engage in curriculum development and scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL), and to contribute through service to the Department and University. Assistant Teaching Professors with a strong record in both teaching and SoTL may apply to become a tenured Teaching Professor after their eleventh year.
Information about the department, including descriptions of courses offered, can be found at its website:http://www.uvic.ca/science/math-statistics/
Applications should be made through MathJobs.org, and should include: a cover letter detailing interest in and experience pertaining to the position; a curriculum vitae; a teaching dossier (or equivalent documentation) that outlines teaching experience, philosophy and effectiveness; and at least three letters of reference in support of the application.
Questions about this position are welcomed and can be addressed to the Chair of Mathematics and Statistics, Dr. Roderick Edwards (firstname.lastname@example.org).
