The Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics (AMS) at Colorado School of Mines (Mines) invites applications for a tenured, full professor to serve as Department Head. Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in mathematics, statistics or a related field and possess an exemplary record in research, teaching, and professional service. Critical for this role are leadership skills that can inspire and motivate academic faculty and staff, effective interpersonal communication, and an ability to organize and manage many diverse tasks and projects.

Successful candidates will have demonstrated that they adhere to high ethical standards, operate in a transparent and collegial way, and be responsive to the needs of faculty, staff, and students within the Department. Mines has an unconditional commitment to respecting and increasing diversity among our students, faculty, and staff and thus a successful candidate will also display this core value of our university. Experience in teaching and working in an academic environment is essential, however, experience working in and with industry is also valued.

The Department Head will be responsible for leading an integrated faculty of mathematicians and statisticians to increase the volume and impact of their research, for enhancing the computational mathematics, statistics and data science graduate programs through recruiting and retaining talented students, and for promoting excellence in instruction in the Department degree programs and service courses. The Department Head’s leadership and new directions should be aligned within the Mines strategic university plan (Mines@150) and emphasize society’s major challenges related to earth, energy, environment, and sustainability. Successful candidates will also share the Mines goals of creating a sustainable global society by educating the next generation of scientists, engineers, and leaders, and by expanding the frontiers of knowledge through research and will evidence a passion for advancing the University’s and Department’s commitment to diversity and inclusion.
