Mathematics Position

A Ph.D., or near completion, in mathematics is required for each.  Applicants must have a strong commitment to excellence in teaching and be able to teach core mathematics courses and a wide range of upper division courses.  While a broad range of research areas are welcome, for one of the positions the applicant should be able to teach differential equations; for the second position, preference will be given to candidates who can teach courses in discrete mathematics.  For both positions, candidates who can also teach applied mathematics courses such as mathematical modeling, or can teach courses that support Drake’s Data Analytics program will be given preference.  Applicants will also be expected to work with students on independent study and capstone projects and occasionally teach a first year seminar. The course load is 3-3.
