tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Applied Mathematics – The College of New Jersey

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at The College of New Jersey (TCNJ) invites outstanding applicants for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Applied Mathematics to join our community starting August 2020.

TCNJ has a strong commitment to inclusive excellence in our community and to supporting a healthy work-life balance for our faculty of teacher-scholars. TCNJ has been recognized by The Chronicle of Higher Education on its honor roll of “Great Colleges to Work For.”

We seek a broadly trained applied mathematician who has the potential to contribute collaboratively to interdisciplinary curricular and scholarly efforts within the Department, School of Science, and the College. The successful candidate will be passionate about teaching a wide range of mathematics courses at every level of the undergraduate curriculum in a primarily undergraduate, residential, liberal arts-centered institution. The successful candidate will also display dedication to inclusive excellence in STEM and higher education.

The typical teaching load is 2 to 3 courses per semester and will be a mixture of upper-level and introductory-level courses. We welcome candidates from all areas of applied mathematics, especially those that diversify the department’s existing strengths while also incorporating undergraduates into their research program. The Department encourages applications from all areas of applied mathematics including, but not limited to: Numerical Analysis, Modeling and Simulation, Scientific Computing, Operations Research, or Signal Processing. An earned doctorate in mathematics, applied mathematics, or a closely related field is required, and it must be completed prior to the start date.

Teaching and research are mutually supportive activities at TCNJ. Candidates should be strongly committed to the teacher-scholar model, to maintaining both high quality teaching and an active and productive research program, to encouraging and mentoring highly motivated undergraduates in intensive, individual work both inside and outside the classroom (e.g., undergraduate research, independent study), and to seeking external funding consistent with this mission. Faculty members also serve as academic advisors and have service responsibilities within the Department, School, and College.

The Mathematics and Statistics Department is housed in a modern and newly renovated building that offers excellent facilities, including a new high-performance computing cluster. For further information about our program, please visit: https://mathstat.tcnj.edu/.
