Wabash College — Tenure-Track Faculty Position in Mathematics

Wabash College invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in mathematics, to start July 1, 2017.  We anticipate hiring at the assistant professor level, but will consider candidates of any rank.  A Ph.D. in mathematics or closely related field by the time of appointment is expected. Any specialization will be considered, but preference may be given to areas that expand the mathematical breadth of the department. Applicants must have a commitment to excellence in undergraduate teaching, an appreciation for the broad intellectual community of an excellent liberal arts college, and the ability to work with a diverse student body. Teaching duties are three courses per semester and include a wide range of courses, both upper and lower level, as well as the occasional all-college course.

Wabash College offers competitive salaries and benefits with substantial conference and research support for faculty.  All new continuing faculty appointments at the rank of Assistant Professor are made with the title Byron K. Trippet Assistant Professor. The appointments are made with the expectation of development or continuation of research or creative work. Funding support totaling $8,000 is available to each appointee, beginning on the date of appointment and until such time as the appointee receives tenure at Wabash College. Up to $4,000 may be spent during the initial two-year appointment. The remaining funds are available pending a successful second year review.  The department and the college are also willing to support applications to Project NeXT for eligible candidates.
