The Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Delaware invites applications for a continuing track (non-tenure, rolling contract) faculty at the rank of Assistant Professor. The successful candidate will teach in our innovative Mathematical Sciences Learning Laboratory (MSLL). MSLL integrates active learning and other evidence-based teaching strategies, principles of continuous improvement, learning technologies, and a collaborative instructional team with the goal of studying and improving teaching and learning in foundational college mathematics courses.
We seek candidates committed to and/or experienced in the following: 1) teaching mathematics in active learning environments, 2) leveraging technology to support student learning, and 3) collaborating with teams of instructors to teach, study, and improve entry-level college mathematics courses. Applications should include evidence of a strong commitment to developing excellence in teaching and a strong interest in teaching foundational college mathematics courses. Candidates must have a doctoral degree in mathematics, mathematics education, or a related field. For candidates whose doctoral degree is not in mathematics, a master’s degree in mathematics or its equivalent is preferred.
