Assistant Professor of Mathematics
Assistant Professor of Mathematics. Otterbein University, a comprehensive liberal arts institution in the suburban Columbus, Ohio area, invites applications for a tenure-track position in Mathematics or Mathematics Education at the rank of Assistant Professor, beginning Fall 2018. Candidates with expertise in all areas of mathematics, or mathematics education, will be considered.
The mathematics program at Otterbein is unique in that mathematics majors begin, in their first semester, a study of advanced calculus and abstract algebra, while simultaneously studying computational calculus. Students pursue a rigorous course of study, while also enjoying the quality instruction and individualized attention that is a hallmark of our university. The department offers undergraduate degrees in mathematics, mathematics with teaching licensure, and actuarial science. Additionally, we have a graduate program in educational mathematics, with advanced courses aimed at current and future secondary school teachers. The department is relatively large for the size of the university, because there is a university-wide mathematics requirement for graduation. For this reason, half of the teaching schedules serve this need.
Qualifications: Ph.D. in Mathematics or Mathematics Education by the time of appointment is required. Documented evidence of quality teaching, usually through student evaluations and/or peer review, is also required.
Responsibilities include providing high quality instruction, pursuing an active research agenda, and service to the university.
