  • The successful applicant will (i) present evidence of teaching excellence at the undergraduate level, (ii) demonstrate an ability to teach a wide range of mathematics courses, both for majors and non-majors, and (iii) present evidence of being able to contribute to the actuarial science major or to the statistics/applied emphasis of the liberal arts mathematics major. 
  • The successful applicant will also present evidence of the potential to establish a scholarship program which can engage students in the high impact practice of undergraduate research, or will have potential to establish a publication record in actuarial science research journals recognized by professional actuarial societies.

DEPARTMENT: The Department of Mathematics has approximately 300 majors in either actuarial science, liberal arts mathematics, or mathematics education. In addition to teaching courses for its majors, the Department also teaches a wide range of courses for non-majors, including calculus preparation courses, statistics, mathematics courses for elementary education majors, and other liberal education mathematics courses for non-majors. The Department also offers an online Master of Science in Data Science degree, enrolling over 100 graduate students.
