Course assistant positions
The Department of Mathematics seeks applications for a Lecturer in Mathematics.
The appointment is expected to begin on July 1, 2015. Lecturers work side by side with other faculty
on teaching, developing, and supporting sections of entry-level calculus courses through multivariable
calculus and linear algebra. The lecturer should also be able to teach a non-sectioned course
independently and possibly a graduate level course. The teaching load will be two courses each
semester. The student audience for the undergraduate courses will be predominately non majors.
Most of the undergraduate classes are taught interactively. The position is for one year.
