Position TitleInstructor in Applied Mathematics and Statistics

Company Information

The Department of Applied Mathematics has its origins in the turn of the 20th century, and evolved out of the Department of Engineering Mathematics. The department teaches thousands of students and has a major research presence in computational and physical/biological mathematics and the statistical sciences. The faculty is composed of 24 [MOU1] tenured or tenure track faculty and nine full time instructors. In addition, the department is home to more than 90 graduate students including approximately 45 teaching assistants, about 216 applied math majors, 70 statistics and data science majors, 96 minors and a thriving BS-MS program.

The department strives to be a leading program of applied mathematics. In 2018, the US News & World Report ranked the unit’s graduate program 14th in the nation. The unit also ranked positively in many measures by the National Research Council in its 2010 decadal survey.

Our faculty have won numerous awards including: four fellows of the Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics, two fellows of the American Mathematical Society, two fellows of the American Physical Society, two Guggenheim Fellows, American Statistical Association Fellow, Sloan Fellow, and CU-Boulder Hazel Barnes Prize winners, Professor of Distinction, winners of numerous CU-Boulder faculty awards, and two distinguished research lecturers

Duties and Responsibilities

The Department of Applied Mathematics at the University of Colorado Boulder seeks applicants for the position of Instructor, to begin Fall 2020. Instructors compose the core of the department’s full-time teaching faculty team, and play a fundamental role in the department’s educational mission. The initial appointment is for a term of three years, with contract renewal contingent upon satisfactory performance. The successful applicant will be prepared to teach a wide range of applied mathematics and statistics courses at the undergraduate and graduate level, including large lower-division classes (between 90-150 students for Calculus 1, Calculus 2, Calculus 3, and Differential Equations/Linear Algebra). Preference will be given to applicants with expertise in statistics and data science, including experience with curriculum development in those areas. The ideal candidate will assist in the development of the department’s nascent professional master’s degree program—which has an emphasis in statistics and data science—as well as the department’s new BA in Statistics and Data Science. Additional responsibilities may include coordinating multi-section courses, supervising teaching assistants, serving on departmental committees, supporting growth in the department’s statistics and data science degree offerings, and advising undergraduate and professional master’s students.

Position Qualifications

a PhD in the Mathematical Sciences, or a closely related field.
Experience in teaching at the University level.
Preference will be given to recent PhD graduates with experience in statistics and data science.
