The successful candidate should have a Ph.D. (or A.B.D. status) in Mathematics or Applied Mathematics, demonstrated excellence in teaching, and a strong commitment to the education of undergraduates. Teaching responsibilities will include 21 semester hours a year, which is equivalent to 6 or 7 courses.
Applications should consist of (a) a letter of application, (b) curriculum vita, and (c) three letters of recommendation. Applications should be electronically submitted either via mathjobs.org (preferred) or sent directly with the subject line "Visiting Position." Semi-finalists will be required to submit copies of their undergraduate and graduate transcripts. For further information about the Department, please visit http://mathstat.tcnj.edu/.
Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. Final offer of employment will be contingent upon successful completion of a background investigation.
Founded in 1855, TCNJ is a selective public PUI that has earned national recognition for its commitment to excellence. TCNJ emphasizes the residential experience for our nearly 6,500 undergraduate students, 30% of whom are self-described as members of groups traditionally underrepresented in academe and STEM. Students benefit from a 13-to-1 student-to-faculty ratio and an average class size of 21 students, which has led to TCNJ attaining a first-year to sophomore retention rate of 94% and a graduation rate of 86%. TCNJ has also received national recognition for the adoption and promotion of the teacher-scholar model for our faculty and deep engagement of our undergraduates in research. TCNJ was awarded the inaugural "Campus-wide Award for Undergraduate Research Accomplishment" from the Council of Undergraduate Research in 2016. In part because of TCNJ's intentional and comprehensive integration of research into our undergraduate curricula and institutional culture, an increasing number of TCNJ graduates have pursued and completed doctoral degrees over the past ten years. TCNJ was awarded, in 2006, a Phi Beta Kappa chapter-an honor shared by less than 10 percent of colleges and universities nationally. A strong liberal arts core forms the foundation for programs offered through TCNJ's seven schools-Arts and Communication; Business; Education; Engineering; Humanities and Social Sciences; Nursing, Health, and Exercise Science; and Science. TCNJ is located within an hour, by train, of New York City and Philadelphia. The College's campus is set on 289 tree-lined acres in suburban Ewing Township and is known for its natural beauty.
