J.J. Sylvester Assistant Professor
The Department of Mathematics at Johns Hopkins University solicits applications for J.J. Sylvester Assistant Professorships beginning Fall 2024.
The J.J. Sylvester Assistant Professorship is a three-year position offered to recent PhDs with outstanding research potential. Candidates in all areas of pure mathematics are encouraged to apply. The teaching load is three courses per academic year.
Applications may be submitted online at https://www.mathjobs.org/jobs/list/22735. Please submit your AMS cover sheet, cover letter, curriculum vitae, and research and teaching statements, and arrange the submission of at least four letters of recommendation, one of which addresses teaching.
Applications received by November 15, 2023 will be given priority.
The Department of Mathematics at Johns Hopkins University seeks one or two full-time teaching faculty members to support the direction of its entry-level courses (precalculus through linear algebra and differential equations) as well as the broader undergraduate experience in mathematics. Our intention is for these to be long-term hires. Teaching-track ranks at JHU are Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, Associate Teaching Professor, and Teaching professor. The initial appointment will be at a rank commensurate with experience, and the positions are eligible for eventual promotion through these ranks.
Responsibilities will include instruction and instructional design, course coordination, curriculum and technology innovation, and participation in the delivery of professional development of instructors and TAs. We view this as a dynamic position: the successful candidate will join a team of teaching faculty who have significant latitude in the coming years to revise and re-imagine our existing program and who have already initiated substantive revision to better serve our undergraduate education mission. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in the mathematical sciences or mathematics education, as well as demonstrated excellence in teaching and teaching innovation. The position includes full benefits, including JHU’s excellent college tuition benefit for dependent children.
We seek candidates with:
- a record of excellence in teaching and teaching-related scholarly activities,
- the intellectual curiosity to pursue novel and innovative methods of thinking and teaching,
- a commitment to inclusive and student-centered pedagogy and teaching innovation,
- an interest in establishing a long-term teaching career with the Department, and
- the administrative, organizational, and mentoring skills required to coordinate large courses.
To apply, please submit a cover letter specific to this position, along with a curriculum vitae and teaching dossier online at https://www.mathjobs.org/jobs/list/22736. The dossier should at a minimum include a teaching portfolio, including a teaching statement, and a scholarship statement describing work and interest in the area of teaching and learning. Please also arrange the submission of four letters of recommendation, at least two of which address your teaching and leadership experience, and at least one of which addresses your mathematical background. Consideration of applications will begin on November 1, 2023, and will continue until the positions are filled.
Provost’s Postdoctoral Diversity Fellowship
The Office of the Provost at Johns Hopkins University has created a postdoctoral fellowship program with the goal of building a sustainable pathway to the professorate for scholars from underrepresented groups. The fellowships are for up to two years and do not require teaching.
Applicants must either be current PhD students who will finish their degree by the fellowship start date, or else current postdoctoral scholars who are within three years of receiving their degrees. The program encourages applications from scholars with diverse backgrounds and life experiences, such as racial/ethnic minorities, people with disabilities, individuals from rural or socially disadvantaged backgrounds, and those of LGBTQIA identity. In fields where women are underrepresented, such as mathematics, women are encouraged to apply. Only US citizens and permanent residents can apply.
Applications may be submitted through Interfolio at https://apply.interfolio.com/128910. The application deadline is October 13, 2023, and decisions will be announced on December 15, 2023. For any successful applicants who will be affiliated with the Department of Mathematics, the advertised salary will be topped up to our standard postdoctoral salary.
Postdoctoral Teaching Fellow
The Department of Mathematics at Johns Hopkins University solicits applications for a Postdoctoral Teaching Fellowship in Mathematics. This three-year position is part of a cluster of STEM Postdoctoral Teaching Fellows who will develop evidence-based learning experiences for undergraduate students and assessment tools to study these experiences. A main focus of this hiring cluster will be interventions for first-year college students to promote positive attitudes related to STEM interest, identity and belonging, especially for students traditionally underrepresented in STEM.
Candidates must have a doctoral degree and a record of teaching excellence. Preference will be given to candidates with a doctorate either in postsecondary mathematics education or in the mathematical sciences. However, candidates with doctorates in education in another STEM field may be considered.
The position start date is July 1, 2024, with teaching responsibilities beginning in Fall 2024. Applications may be submitted online at https://www.mathjobs.org/jobs/list/23275. Please submit your AMS cover sheet, cover letter, curriculum vitae, and research and teaching statements, and arrange the submission of at least four letters of recommendation, one of which addresses teaching.
Applications received by December 1, 2023 will be given priority.
