The Drake University Department of Mathematics and Computer Science seeks an outstanding teacher for a nine-month full-time tenure-track position at the level of Assistant Professor of Mathematics beginning August 2021. A PhD (completion by August 2021) in mathematics or a related field is required. Research specialties among our faculty include applied mathematics, the history of mathematics, the theory of computation, and mathematics education. All specialties are welcome, but we are particularly interested in a candidate who can strengthen our expertise in fields related to abstract algebra or applied mathematics. In addition, an interest in research issues related to mathematics education would be a plus.
Applicants must have a strong commitment to excellence in teaching. The course load is six 3-credit-hour courses per year. A successful candidate will be expected to have an active research program, teach a variety of mathematics classes, to eventually guide undergraduates in research projects and independent studies, and to teach an occasional First Year Seminar.
The application will close on May 1, 2021. Review of applicants will begin December 1, 2020 and continue until the position is filled.
More than 900 faculty and staff are part of the Bulldog pack, a close-knit community enthusiastic about providing the very best education, challenging assumptions, and welcoming new ideas and people into the fold.
