Curry College is committed to a policy of equal opportunity in every aspect of its operations. The College values diversity and seeks talented students, faculty and staff from a variety of backgrounds.
The Department of Natural Sciences & Mathematics at Curry College invites applications for a full-time faculty member in Mathematics at the Assistant Professor level to begin late August 2021. Priority will be given to candidates with expertise, experience, and/or interest in teaching introductory Statistics courses and supporting other introductory and/or preparatory courses (e.g., College Algebra, Problem Solving Strategies, Mathematics for Educators). While research experience is a bonus, emphasis is placed on excellence in teaching and scholarship of teaching and learning. Evidence of effective teaching to diverse undergraduate learners using innovative course delivery methods, student-centered techniques, and exceptional intervention support is essential. An ideal candidate will contribute to the mission of educating students to engage in successful careers and active citizenship and will have a demonstrated commitment to teaching practices that support diversity and inclusion.
Responsibilities include teaching introductory level Statistics courses and an upper-level elective course on a rotation (e.g., Discrete Math, History of Mathematical Inquiry, Modern Algebra, Mathematical Modeling). The successful candidate will also play an important role in developing collaborative relationships with various disciplines (e.g., Business, Public Health, Nursing) to strengthen the curriculum and teaching of Statistics I and the math area's contributions to the General Education program.
- Earned Doctorate (by August 2021) in Mathematics or Statistics preferred, though qualified candidates with an earned doctorate in a closely related field (e.g., Data Science, Mathematics Education) will be considered;
- Demonstrated teaching effectiveness in introductory college-level Statistics courses.
At the College's discretion, the education and experience prerequisites may be excepted where the candidate can demonstrate, to the satisfaction of the College, an equivalent combination of education and experience specifically preparing the candidate for success in the position.
