Job Details

The Mount Holyoke College Department of Mathematics and Statistics invites applications for tenure-track faculty members from all fields of mathematics and statistics to begin in Fall 2024. These positions are open-rank, ideally with one at the assistant professor level and a senior hire at the associate or full professor level who is interested in mentorship and leadership in the department. One position is in statistics, while the others are open to mathematicians, statisticians, or data scientists. Qualifications include a doctorate in mathematics, statistics, or a related field, completed or anticipated by Fall 2024; a commitment to teaching and scholarship in a liberal arts environment; and evidence of classroom effectiveness.

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics has a collaborative curriculum, offering majors in mathematics, statistics (since 1986), and data science (since 2019). The successful candidates will have a demonstrated commitment to effective teaching and student success at all levels of our undergraduate curriculum. Members of the department acknowledge the historical underrepresentation of marginalized groups in mathematics and statistics, including gender minorities, people of color, LGBTQ+ individuals, disabled individuals, and others. Candidates will strive to work with the department to create an environment that welcomes and supports individuals from all backgrounds. In addition to a teaching statement, a full application requires a statement on mentoring students who are broadly diverse with regard to race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, gender, nationality, sexual orientation, and religion. We acknowledge there is overlap between these two statements; please use the mentoring statement to elaborate upon or highlight particular approaches to mentoring outside the classroom.

Mount Holyoke College is an institution that values excellence in both teaching and research.  We seek candidates with sustainable research programs who are committed to the intellectual life of the college, broadly defined, and who have an active interest in working with undergraduates on research projects.  To support an active research program, the college and department have numerous funding opportunities and tenure-track faculty teach two courses per semester. Mount Holyoke College is a member of the Five College Consortium, which encourages and facilitates collaboration among its members. Faculty and students across the consortium regularly meet to share research and curricular initiatives.

Electronic submission of application materials through http://www.mathjobs.org is required. A completed application should include

    A cover letter addressing your interest in Mount Holyoke College;

    A CV;

    A statement concerning teaching practices;

    A statement concerning research interests, including a description of how undergraduates could be involved;

    A statement that addresses experience with and commitment to mentoring a diverse student body;

    Three letters of reference submitted through MathJobs. At least one letter should comment specifically on teaching.

Though applications will be accepted until all positions are filled, please submit by October 1, 2023 to receive full consideration. For further information about the department go to http://www.mtholyoke.edu/acad/math/. You may also contact the search chairs Alanna Hoyer-Leitzel and Laurie Tupper (email: ahoyerle@mtholyoke.edu and ltupper@mtholyoke.edu) with questions.
