The Department of Mathematics at the University of Kentucky in Lexington, Kentucky invites applicants for two full-time Lecturer positions beginning in Fall 2020. Lecturers are vital to the teaching mission of the mathematics department. The Lecturer will teach primarily first year mathematics courses as well as some second and third year courses. Lecturers will normally teach three courses per semester and perform administrative duties associated with the lower-division mathematics program. Lecturers also develop the curriculum in our first year service courses. The initial contract is for two years and may be renewed indefinitely, subject to performance. Lecturers are eligible for promotion to the rank of Senior Lecturer after a minimum of 5 years.
The position offers competitive salary and full benefits. Applicants should have a Ph.D. degree in mathematics or closely related fields by the time the appointment begins and are expected to present evidence of excellence in teaching.
In order to be considered a candidate, applicants will need to complete the following two steps:
1. Submit your job market materials to MathJobs.Org. These materials should include: the standard AMS Cover Sheet for Academic Employment, a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a statement on teaching experience, quantitative assessments of teaching, a statement on inclusion, diversity, and equity (described below), and at least three (3) letters of reference including letters addressing teaching and supervision of teaching. Evidence of experience or interest in teaching large classes or coordinating classes is valued. All application materials must be submitted online at https://www.mathjobs.org/jobs/jobs/14873
As a department and university, we are strongly committed to creating an inclusive and effective teaching, learning, research, and working environment for all (see http://www.uky.edu/sotu/diversity-and-inclusivity). For your statement on inclusion, diversity, and equity, in one to two pages, applicants are asked to reflect on their commitments, approaches, and insights related to inclusion, diversity, and equity.
2. Complete an application within the University of Kentucky employment system.
Applications will be reviewed as they are received. Applications submitted by January 15, 2020 will receive full consideration.
