Senior Lecturer in Mathematics Math jobs

Position Description: The Department of Mathematics seeks applications for a Senior Lecturer in Mathematics. The responsibilities of this senior non-ladder position would ordinarily include teaching three half-courses a year, with possible additional teaching if required on occasion. Other important responsibilities include developing curriculum and pedagogical materials, advising and mentoring undergraduate students, giving pedagogical support to graduate students as well as other administrative tasks in the department, as needed. The teaching responsibilities will generally include both an upper-level undergraduate course (aimed at mathematics concentrators or potential concentrators), and courses whose audiences are predominately non-majors (from entry-level calculus courses to multivariable calculus and linear algebra). The latter will often require coordinating a multi-sectioned course. The appointment is expected to begin on July 1, 2017. Appointments are made for a term of up to five years and are renewable contingent upon review and approval of the divisional dean. Basic Qualifications: Doctorate in mathematics is ordinarily required by the time the appointment begins. The successful applicant should have at least three years experience teaching mathematics at the undergraduate level. Additional Qualifications: Senior Lecturers ordinarily have taught within the ladder ranks at a university or peer undergraduate institution and have a commensurate scholarly record. Applicants must have a strong background in advanced mathematics and a sophisticated understanding of undergraduate teaching, learning, and curricular issues generally. Essential qualities include initiative, good judgment, the ability and desire to work with undergraduates on research projects, and the ability to both work with and lead a team. Please document any relevant experience in these areas as well as your success in the classroom. The ideal candidate will be actively involved in the life of the department. Special Instructions: Please submit the following materials through Math jobs). Applications must be submitted no later than December 31, 2016.
