Union College — Math Department Search 2021-22

The Department of Mathematics at Union College welcomes applications for one tenure-track position at the rank of assistant professor (advanced appointments with a shortened tenure clock may be considered in exceptional cases for experienced candidates), and one three-year visiting position. Pending final budgetary approval, the start date for the appointments will be September 1, 2022.

At Union, institutional expectations and support are balanced between teaching and research; candidates should demonstrate excellence in both areas. The teaching load is two courses per trimester. The positions are open to candidates from all fields of mathematics who will have a Ph.D. in mathematics by September 2022, who have strong teaching credentials in undergraduate mathematics, and have a record of scholarly achievement that suggests a continuing commitment to scholarship in any field within mathematics. For the visiting position, teaching may also include sections of our Introduction to Statistics course. Prior experience teaching introductory statistics courses is therefore desirable for candidates applying for the visiting position.

Applicants should submit their materials online at MathJobs.org, including a cover letter, a vita, a research statement, a teaching statement, and three letters of reference. At least one letter of reference should address teaching qualifications. The statement on teaching should also include a summary of recent teaching evaluations and a description of how they were administered.

The Department of Mathematics and Union College are strongly committed to student and workforce diversity and inclusion. Union provides a blend of intellectual, social and cultural opportunities to facilitate the integrated academic, social and personal development of a diverse community. We value and are committed to a host of diverse populations and cultures including, but not limited to, those based on race, religion, disability, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, national origin, and veteran status. We particularly welcome applications from groups that have been traditionally underrepresented in mathematics. We ask candidates to include in their cover letters remarks about their own experiences or goals concerning diversity and inclusion initiatives and ways to serve a wide variety of student populations and cultures.

Union College recognizes the rich possibilities of interdisciplinary studies by offering many opportunities for both faculty and students to engage with multiple disciplines—and each other—in collaborative classroom settings, innovative majors, and unique research initiatives. The successful hire can develop courses in their area of expertise that may contribute to other programs at Union. A list of interdisciplinary programs at Union College can be found at https://www.union.edu/interdisciplinary-studies.

To guarantee consideration, application files must be complete by December 1, 2021.
