Faculty Positions

The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Wesleyan University invites applications for a tenure track assistant professorship in mathematics beginning in fall, 2015. Candidates must possess, or be close to completing, a PhD or equivalent degree, and must have strong records in both research and teaching. We seek strong candidates whose research is in analysis, broadly construed, and whose research interests are compatible with those of the department. Exceptional candidates in any field compatible with the research interests of the faculty are also encouraged to apply. Teaching duties will be two courses in each semester.

Wesleyan University is a leading liberal arts school with approximately 3000 students, located in Middletown, Connecticut, halfway between Boston and New York and also halfway between Hartford and New Haven. The university has graduate programs leading to doctoral and masters' degrees in the sciences and ethnomusicology. The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science awards the PhD degree in Mathematics, and the MA degrees in Mathematics as well as Computer Science. There are 12 mathematicians and 5 computer scientists in the department, as well as approximately 17 graduate students. The low student to faculty ratio ensures close contact between faculty and graduate students.
