As part of an initiative to modernize and improve lower-division instruction, the Department of Mathematics at the University of Florida invites applications for four (4) non-tenure-track, nine-month, renewable lecturer positions to begin as early as January, 2018. Candidates must have substantial interest in STEM education reform; in particular; the department seeks to attract individuals with experience in active learning environments such as flipped classrooms. The university’s stated goal is to reduce class sizes across campus and these new positions will allow the mathematics department to support this effort by moving large-lecture calculus courses to smaller, more interactive environments. The individuals hired into these lines will be tasked with implementing this shift and will work together with existing faculty to deliver a high-quality learning experience for UF’s students.
This is an exciting time for the University of Florida as it seeks to hire 500 new faculty over the next few years. Lecturers play a vital role in our dynamic instructional enterprise by bringing subject expertise and commitment to excellence in teaching to bear in educating our exceptional undergraduates. In recognition of their importance to the university’s mission, lecturers enjoy significant professional development opportunities, including a well-defined promotion structure, a professional development leave program, and access to travel funds for conference presentations. Summer teaching, both in-person and on-line, is also available.
The University of Florida is an equal opportunity institution dedicated to building a broadly diverse and inclusive faculty and staff. Searches are conducted in accordance with Florida's Sunshine Law. If an accommodation due to disability is needed to apply for this position, please call (352) 392-2477 or the Florida Relay System at (800) 955-8771 (TDD).
The salary is competitive and commensurate with qualifications and experience and includes a full benefits package.
