  • Director of Undergraduate Studies
    The Department of Mathematical Sciences at Carnegie Mellon University invites applications for a Director of Undergraduate Studies to begin September 1, 2017.

    The Department administers several undergraduate degree programs, some highly interdisciplinary, and interest in mathematics among undergraduates at Carnegie Mellon has grown dramatically in recent years. The Director of Undergraduate studies is responsible for undergraduate advising and recruiting, plays a central role in curriculum development, and serves as the liaison to the rest of the Carnegie Mellon campus in the context of undergraduate education.

    Preference will be given to candidates with an outstanding record of classroom teaching. Strong leadership, interpersonal, and organizational skills are also desired. A Ph.D. in mathematics or a closely related discipline is required. Promise of excellent ability to teach and mentor students of diverse backgrounds is a plus.

    The appointment is expected to be to the teaching-track, with rank determined by the accomplishments of the candidate. Carnegie Mellon has teaching-track faculty with the titles of Assistant Teaching Professor, Associate Teaching Professor, and Teaching Professor. These are nontenure-track career faculty positions with provision for renewal and promotion. Exceptional candidates may be considered for a tenure-track position.

    Applications should be submitted by December 1, 2016 for full consideration.

  • Eugene P. Shelly Visiting Associate Professor
    The Department of Mathematical Sciences at Carnegie Mellon University expects to annually appoint a Shelly Visiting Associate Professor for a term of one academic year. This position, created through a gift of Eugene P. Shelly, is intended for regular mathematics faculty members at institutions that focus primarily on teaching. The idea is to give Carnegie Mellon faculty and graduate students an opportunity to improve their teaching skills through interaction with the visitor, while simultaneously providing the visitor with an enriched research experience. Application procedures are set each fall.
