We are looking for someone who wants to thrive in a collegial and supportive environment, who will grow as a professional and will contribute to the understanding of mathematics through research in topology, who is committed to educating the next generation of mathematics students in a setting where a variety of teaching strategies is encouraged, and who is committed to growing participation of women and under-represented minorities in mathematics. The successful candidate will be expected to maintain an active research agenda and will be encouraged to seek opportunities to collaborate with researchers within the department, the university, and/or the wider community. The typical teaching load is three courses each semester, two of which will usually support the mission of the Department to teach mathematics courses for non-mathematics majors. There will also be opportunities to teach upper division courses for mathematics majors. The successful candidate will be also expected to participate in the life and development of the Department of Mathematics, and work with students from diverse backgrounds both in the classroom and on mathematical research and capstone projects as such opportunities arise.
Applicants must have active and ongoing research in an area of topology (MSC 54, 55).
