Position Description

The Department of Computational and Applied Mathematics at Rice University seeks to hire lecturers to teach in its undergraduate and graduate programs. We expect that the lecturers’ appointments will start in July 2019. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics, Mathematics, Computational Sciences, Operations Research, Industrial Engineering, or a related field. Candidates must have demonstrated potential for excellence in teaching.

The lecturer positions are (non-tenure-track) full-time teaching positions. Each lecturer teaches the equivalent of three courses per semester. Lecturers teach courses across a variety of subjects and levels (see www.caam.rice.edu). Curricular materials are already available for most of the existing courses.

The Department of Computational and Applied Mathematics at Rice has a long tradition of excellence in education and research. At the undergraduate level, the Department operates both a major and a minor. At the graduate level, the Department offers programs that lead to a professional master’s degree, a thesis-based Master of Arts degree, and a Doctor of Philosophy degree. The Department hosts research programs in optimization, numerical linear algebra, control and inverse problems, mathematical biology, partial differential equations, and scientific computing. Interdisciplinary work is fundamental to the Department’s research program.

Applicants should submit a letter of application, a current curriculum vita, and a description of teaching experience. The letter of application should indicate the range of courses that the candidate could consider teaching. The applicant should also provide contact information for three references who will be contacted automatically, if the candidate advances beyond the initial screening by the search committee.

To receive full consideration, the complete application should be received by March 15, 2019. The committee will continue to accept applications until all positions are filled.
