Mathematics Faculty Position at Bennington College

Bennington Full-time

Bennington College seeks a full-time mathematician to join its faculty beginning September 2018. Candidates must be able to teach across the undergraduate mathematics curriculum, and to reach beyond traditional curricular boundaries. A Ph.D. in Mathematics or closely related field is required. There is considerable flexibility to accommodate a variety of research programs, and opportunity for research with students and colleagues. We invite applications from all areas of pure mathematics, as well as mathematical physics.

Faculty members at Bennington are teacher-practitioners whose professional work is in ongoing dialogue with their teaching and advising. Faculty teach five courses per year and fully engaged student advising is an expectation. Additionally, the successful candidate will demonstrate a commitment to developing curriculum that invites the participation of students with a broad range of interests.

Bennington College is a small residential liberal arts college in southern Vermont, long distinguished for its progressive approach to higher education. The College was founded in 1932 on the principle of active engagement in learning, which is manifest in individualized plans of study developed by students together with faculty. We aim to educate students towards self-fulfillment and constructive social purposes, and we believe that equity, diversity, and inclusivity--in community and in curriculum--are vital to achieving those aims.

Candidates should apply online to https://bennington.recruiterbox.com/jobs/fk011mk by submitting: a) letter of application that describes teaching experience, professional work and includes a reflection on the candidate’s potential to contribute to a diverse and inclusive environment through teaching, research, and/or service; b) curriculum vitae; c) teaching statement which includes a short description of three proposed courses; and d) the names and contact information for three references.

In recognition of the employment challenges sometimes faced by academic couples in small communities, the College will also consider applications to share equally a single full-time faculty position. Applicants must each submit an individual application and indicate in their cover letters that they are applying jointly.
