Assistant Professor, tenure track
Pomona College invites applications for a tenure track position in the Department of Mathematics, at the rank of Assistant Professor, beginning July 1, 2020. We are looking for candidates who are committed to excellence in teaching and research, and who will be excited about mentoring students and supervising student research. The department has directed much effort towards creating a supporting community for all students, and is particularly interested in candidates who have experience working with students from diverse backgrounds and a demonstrated commitment to improving access to and success in higher education for underrepresented students.
The department invites applicants in the areas of Analysis, Topology, Geometry, or Probability broadly construed. Those who display fluidity in crossing barriers between pure and applied mathematics and/or are comfortable working with real-world data are particularly encouraged to apply. Duties of the position include teaching four semester courses per year, and the direction of student senior projects on a wide range of topics.
Pomona College is a highly selective residential liberal arts college attracting an economically and geographically diverse student body, located 35 miles east of downtown Los Angeles. It is the founding member of the Claremont Colleges, a consortium of seven institutions with over forty active mathematicians. Pomona College is an equal opportunity employer and especially invites applications from women and members of underrepresented groups.
Applications are to be submitted at Mathjobs.org. A complete application will include a curriculum vitae, graduate transcripts, at least three letters of recommendation (at least one of which evaluates teaching), a description, for the non-specialist, of research accomplishments and plans, a statement of teaching philosophy, and a diversity statement. Applications completed by December 1, 2019, will receive full consideration.
