Assistant Professor of Mathematics
Belmont Abbey College invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track position as an Assistant Professor of Mathematics, to begin August 2018. An earned doctorate in mathematics and demonstrated excellence in undergraduate teaching are required.
The candidate will be responsible for teaching a range of college level mathematics courses including (but not limited to) Algebra, Calculus, and Differential Equations. Ability to teach Physical sciences and to interact with, contribute to, develop and teach interdisciplinary programs (like data science, actuarial science and similar) is positively regarded, but not required.
The successful candidate will also demonstrate commitment to an intellectual life consistent with the College’s identity as a Catholic, Benedictine school that aims to provide an excellent undergraduate education “in the liberal arts and sciences so that in all things God may be glorified.” Preference will be given to those candidates who can demonstrate a philosophy of teaching and research that fits well with the institutions emphasis on the education of the whole person, and with the approach to education expressed in St. John Paul II’s Ex Corde Ecclesiae.
Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the search is completed. The position is subject to final administrative approval. Please apply by email to email@example.com using the subject line “Math Search.” Include letter of application, vita, the names and contact information of at least three references, and a written response in which you explain how you might contribute to the University’s Catholic, Benedictine liberal arts mission, how your work engages with the Catholic intellectual tradition, or how your own faith tradition informs your vocation as teacher and scholar. (Evidence of teaching excellence and official transcripts are optional at this stage but required for interview.)
