Job Summary

The Department of Mathematics at the University of Georgia seeks highly qualified candidates to fill Limited Term Assistant Professor positions beginning in August 2018. These positions are similar to a postdoctoral position in that they are not tenure track and involve both teaching and research. Each position is of two years duration, with the possibility of renewal for a third year. Teaching duties are the equivalent of 4 three-hour courses per year and will be aligned with the department’s new small class initiative at the pre-calculus and calculus level. In addition, Limited Term Assistant Professors are expected to participate in the research life of the Department, including the pursuit of an original research program. Applicants must exhibit potential for significant research and high quality teaching. A Ph.D., or equivalent foreign degree, in Mathematics or a closely related field is required. Applicants are encouraged to identify a member of the current faculty with whom their research aligns. Complete applications (including letters of recommendation) must be received by December 17, 2017 to ensure full consideration, but review will continue until the positions are filled. The University of Georgia is located in Athens, Georgia, which has a vibrant and engaging intercultural community, about 75 miles northeast of Atlanta. 

To apply, please submit a vita with a list of publications, a teaching statement, a research statement, and four letters of recommendation (one addressing the candidate’s teaching skills), through mathjobs.org as well as through FacultyJobs, http://facultyjobs.uga.edu/postings/3027. Applications are incomplete and will not be considered until entered both on FacultyJobs and MathJobs. The Mathematics Department, the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences, its many units, and the University of Georgia are committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty and students, and sustaining a work and learning environment that is inclusive. Women, minorities, and people with disabilities are encouraged to apply. The University of Georgia is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, gender identity, sexual orientation, or protected veteran status. Persons needing accommodations or assistance with the accessibility of materials related to this search are encouraged to contact Central HR (facultyjobs@uga.edu). Please do not contact the department or search committee with such requests.
