Faculty Positions

Tenure Track Assistant Professorship in Mathematics

The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Wesleyan University invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professorship in mathematics to begin in the fall of 2019.

 

We seek strong candidates in all areas of mathematical logic, especially those whose research interests connect with the interests of current members of the department.  However, exceptional candidates in any field compatible with the research interests of the faculty are also encouraged to submit an application.

 

Wesleyan University is a leading liberal arts school with approximately 3000 students, located halfway between Boston and New York and also halfway between Hartford and New Haven. The university has graduate programs leading to doctoral and master’s degrees in the sciences and ethnomusicology. The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science awards the Ph.D. degree in Mathematics, and the MA degrees in Mathematics as well as Computer Science. There are 13 mathematicians and 7 computer scientists in the department, not including visitors and postdocs, as well as approximately 17 graduate students. The low student to faculty ratio ensures close contact between faculty and graduate students. Wesleyan values both scholarship and teaching very highly, has a strong, diverse undergraduate student body, and offers a generous sabbatical program and competitive salaries and benefits.

 

Teaching duties will be two courses in each semester, typically including a graduate-level course. Additional duties include advising and mentoring students, and participating in faculty governance at the departmental and university levels.

For full consideration applications must be received by November 15, 2018, and must include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, research statement, teaching statement, and at least four letters of recommendation, one of which evaluates the candidate’s teaching.  A Ph.D. or equivalent degree in mathematics in hand is required by the time of appointment to be hired as an Assistant Professor; a successful candidate may be hired as an Instructor if the candidate does not have a Ph.D. or equivalent degree in hand at the time of appointment, but will do so within one year of hire.  As part of the teaching statement, we invite each candidate to describe his/her cultural competencies and experiences engaging a diverse student body. Applications must be submitted online at mathjobs.org. Other correspondence may be directed to the following addresses:
