Instructor or Assistant Professor of Mathematics

Job description

Briar Cliff University of Iowa, an institution committed to higher education within a liberal arts and Catholic perspective, invites applications for a nine-month, non-tenure-track, instructor or assistant professor in Mathematics to start in the fall of 2021 with potential for annual renewal. Candidates will have earned a Master’s or Doctoral degree in mathematics or closely related field. The duties include a 24-hour teaching load, largely focused on general education courses, but including a limited number of upper-level courses. Successful candidates will demonstrate a commitment to high-quality education in a Catholic and Franciscan University. Preference will be given to candidates with a background in statistics, but all applications will receive consideration.

Perched on a scenic hilltop in northwest Iowa, Briar Cliff University is a liberal arts institution offering baccalaureate to doctoral degree programs and is home to more than 1100 students. Since 1930, the University has educated students in the Franciscan tradition of service, caring, and openness to all. Grounded in faith and pursuit in higher learning, the liberal arts education from Briar Cliff shapes more than just students’ résumés – it shapes their character.

We invite applications for this position. Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. Candidates should provide a curriculum vitae, a cover letter, a teaching statement, graduate transcripts (unofficial acceptable), and the names and contact information for three references who will not be contacted without consent. These materials should be sent electronically to Tonia Abell, Human Resources Generalist, at [email protected]. Further information about these positions may be found at EOE/AA
