Position and Qualifications

The Department of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science is anchored by an actively engaged faculty and supports students interested in obtaining degrees in Mathematics (B.A., B.S., or minor) with optional minors/concentrations in Data Science. Beyond the core curriculum, special topics courses are offered in a variety of subfields of mathematics, statistics, computer science, and data science.

The position carries a teaching load equivalent to six courses per year. The successful candidate must be able to teach introductory and upper-level courses in mathematics. They will have the opportunity to develop special topics courses and will contribute courses to the general education program. Other duties include supervising capstone projects and participating in departmental governance.

We seek candidates who will advance Hollins’ commitment to diversity, equity, justice, and inclusive excellence; who have demonstrated success working with and mentoring students who are first-generation, limited-income, and from historically underrepresented groups in higher education; and who have an active record of ongoing scholarly activity in the form of publications and presentations.
