Assistant Professor of Mathematics Education

 

The Department of Mathematics at SUNY College at Geneseo invites applications for a tenure-track position in Mathematics Education at the rank of Assistant Professor beginning August 2014.

Located in the Genesee Valley some 30 miles south of Rochester, SUNY Geneseo is a highly selective institution consistently rated among the top public liberal arts colleges in the country, with an undergraduate enrollment of approximately 5300 students. The Department of Mathematics (20 full-time members) offers a B.A. in Mathematics and an M.S. in Mathematics Education, along with applied minors for students majoring in other academic departments. The Department encompasses both pure and applied mathematics as well as a very strong secondary mathematics teacher preparation program. Mathematics is the 6th largest major at Geneseo, with approximately 30% of our 355 mathematics majors preparing for secondary certification.

Candidates are expected to have completed all requirements for a doctorate in mathematics education or related field before September 1, 2014, and to have a demonstrated research interest in mathematics education at the secondary level.

Preference will be given to applicants whose portfolio provides evidence of demonstrated excellence in teaching, of having completed master's level courses in mathematics and/or statistics, and at least two years of full-time public school experience teaching mathematics at the secondary level. Less significant, but also valued, are experience with the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, familiarity with the NCTM program accreditation process, and experience with instructional technology as it relates to mathematics.

The successful candidate will interact with current faculty and students in the Mathematics Department and the School of Education to improve the design and implementation of our program for pre-service mathematics teachers. Usual duties consist of teaching undergraduate and graduate courses covering secondary mathematics content and methods, teaching undergraduate mathematics courses, supervising student teachers, participating in service activities, and conducting scholarly research in mathematics education or the mathematical sciences.

Review of applications will begin on November 1, 2013. Please submit an online faculty application at: https://jobs.geneseo.edu. An online application will consist of a letter of interest, a vita, a statement of teaching philosophy, evidence of effective teaching, and unofficial transcripts of undergraduate and graduate work. Additionally, three confidential letters of reference, at least one of which should address teaching, must be sent directly to:

With 355 majors, of whom approximately 30% are in the secondary certification program, mathematics is the 6th largest major on campus.

Geneseo is advertising three statistics-related tenure track positions this year: one through the Department of Sociology, one through the Department of Psychology, and this position housed in the Department of Mathematics. Although the individuals hired in these positions will have primary responsibility to their individual departments, it is hoped that the possibilities for interdisciplinary work and the chance to develop a critical mass of students and faculty interested in and skilled with the analysis of data will lead to productive research and teaching collaborations among the three departments and across campus. The College and the Department of Mathematics are committed to supporting such endeavors.

Required Qualifications: A Ph.D. in Statistics in hand or expected by August 2014. Recent and proven expertise as a teacher of statistics. Experience in or interest in teaching mathematics, including probability at the advanced undergraduate level. Enthusiastic commitment to undergraduate instruction at all levels. Potential for scholarly growth.

Preferred Qualifications: Experience in collaborating with researchers in diverse fields. Experience mentoring undergraduates in research projects. Interest in and/or experience in working with actuarial science students.
