ABOUT BERRY COLLEGE:

Located on more than 27,000 acres in northwest Georgia in a setting of great natural beauty, Berry College has an enrollment of about 2,200 undergraduate and graduate students. The college is located in Rome, Georgia, 75 miles northwest of Atlanta and 75 miles south of Chattanooga, Tennessee. As a comprehensive liberal-arts college with a distinctive mission and purpose, Berry unites a challenging academic program with practical work experience in a context that nurtures spiritual and moral growth, including significant service to others.

We seek faculty who are committed to excellence as teachers-scholars-mentors and staff who are also committed to serving as mentors and supervisors for students who work on campus. Although not required, more than 90 percent of our students participate in our premier student work program. Employee benefits are competitive.

 


JOB DESCRIPTION:

The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Berry College invites applications for a visiting assistant professor position (9-month academic year) to begin in August 2021. Our collegial department of eight faculty members strives for excellence in teaching mathematics and mentoring students from a wide range of backgrounds in a comprehensive college with a liberal arts core. Our department is similarly committed to the training and mentorship of visiting faculty members to help them excel in the classroom.

The ideal candidate will demonstrate aptitude and enthusiasm for teaching in a liberal arts environment and a desire to contribute to our rich mathematics culture. The teaching load for this position will be 12 credit hours per semester of lower-division courses (including elementary statistics and precalculus).  

The candidate should share our department's commitment to student engagement inside and outside of the classroom, as well as our desire to promote opportunities for students from under-represented groups. Berry is also committed to increasing the diversity of our faculty and staff. We welcome applications from all groups and strongly encourage women and persons of color to apply for this position.

 


REQUIREMENTS:

Preference will be given to applicants who have completed the Ph.D. requirements in any subdiscipline of mathematics, or a closely related field, by the time of appointment. Applicants with a Masters degree and relevant experience will also be considered (as a visiting lecturer). 

 


ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

Berry is a selective independent college of 2,100 undergraduate students located adjacent to Rome, GA, midway between Atlanta, GA, and Chattanooga, TN. Berry's educational approach deliberately unites challenging academic programs with practical work experience in a residential campus community that encourages faith and emphasizes caring for the needs of others above self. This commitment to an "education of the head, heart and hands" remains as relevant today as when our founder instilled this ethic more than a century ago. 

Nationally recognized for quality of learning and quality of life, Berry offers first-rate undergraduate degree programs in the sciences, humanities, arts and human sciences, as well as undergraduate and master's level opportunities in business and teacher education.
