Mathematics & Computer Science: Visiting Instructor of Mathematics - 000080MT

The Department of Mathematics & Computer Science at the University of Richmond, a highly-selective, private, liberal arts institution, invites applications for a one year Visiting Instructor position in Mathematics to begin August 2017. We will consider candidates with any background in mathematics. An MS degree in mathematics or a closely related field is required; a Ph.D. is desirable but not required.

The successful applicant is expected to commit to highly effective teaching at all levels of the undergraduate curriculum. We are particularly interested in hearing from candidates about how they will support students from groups traditionally underrepresented in the sciences.

Applicants will be asked to submit electronically a cover letter, a CV, a statement describing their teaching experience and interests, and names of three references. The teaching statement should highlight the applicant's plans or goals for supporting inclusivity and diversity in the context of an undergraduate liberal arts institution. References will receive an automated email asking them to submit their reference letters to this web site. At least two of the reference letters should address the candidate's teaching experience and/or potential. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.

The University of Richmond is a private university with approximately 3000 undergraduates located on a beautiful campus six miles west of the heart of Richmond, Virginia and in close proximity to the ocean, mountains, and Washington, D.C. The University of Richmond is committed to developing a diverse workforce and student body, and to modeling an inclusive campus community which values the expression of difference in ways that promote excellence in teaching, learning, personal development, and institutional success. Our academic community strongly encourages applications that are in keeping with this commitment. For more information on the department please go to http://math.richmond.edu/.
