Tenure-Track Position in Mathematics
Gettysburg College invites applications for a tenure-track position in mathematics at the rank of Assistant Professor beginning August 2014. A strong preference will be given to applicants whose mathematical interests have clear connections to the natural sciences, social sciences, or engineering --- particularly if the applicant demonstrates in their materials explicit ways in which those connections can enrich all levels of our curriculum. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in one of the mathematical sciences, including statistics, or expect to complete all requirements for the degree by September 2014. A record of excellent and innovative teaching, a clear promise of outstanding achievements in research, and a desire to shape the mathematics program of an energetic department in a liberal arts environment are essential. A successful candidate will have the opportunity to teach a broad range of topics in undergraduate mathematics and to involve students in a variety of mathematical activities outside the classroom. Faculty at Gettysburg College are expected to teach five courses per year, mentor and advise students, and maintain an active and productive scholarly program. The College is prepared to assist newly appointed faculty members in establishing a research program; this assistance may include start-up funds, funding for professional travel, and a paid pre-tenure leave.
