Mathematics Professor

The Department of Mathematical Sciences at Bethel College (North Newton, Kansas) invites applications for a tenure-track position at the assistant professor level to begin fall 2015. Required: PhD, and commitment to undergraduate teaching in a liberal arts context and to collaboration with other departments. Review of applications beginsDecember 1and will continue until the position is filled.

The Mathematical Sciences department at Bethel prepares students for graduate study in mathematics and related disciplines, careers in secondary education, and engineering programs at the undergraduate level. It includes a computer science minor, and provides courses in the general education program as well as supporting courses for other majors, including in business, elementary education, the natural sciences and social sciences. Through the math cooperative with neighboring Tabor College, the department shares upper-level courses via ITV technology, supplemented with occasional travel by instructors and students to the other campus. Lower-level course instruction is shared by faculty outside the department, particularly for service courses (college algebra for math competency, applied statistics, elementary math education). Such collaboration across departmental lines and with another college has enabled the department to sustain a strong math program with limited staffing; the successful candidate will need to continue that cooperative tradition while seeking new opportunities to build further strength and stability in the math program.
