A tenure-track faculty position at the rank of assistant professor is available in the Department of Mathematics in the College of Arts and Sciences. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. This appointment carries an initial two-year probationary appointment beginning with the 2022/2023 academic year, on August 22, 2022.

Preference will be given to candidates with an established track record of publication in journals recognized in the criteria for designation as a Center of Actuarial Excellence.
