The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at California State University Monterey Bay (CSUMB) invites applications for a tenure-track position in Mathematics at the Assistant Professor level to commence in August 2017. The successful candidate will use evidence-based pedagogies to teach and develop curriculum in the Mathematics major and minors, and will work closely with faculty to plan for a future masters degree program in mathematics.

CSUMB is a comprehensive public university committed to serving the diverse people of California, especially the working class, historically underserved, and low income populations. A federally designated Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI), CSUMB attracts about one-third of its undergraduate students from the local region. The university values an educational environment of cultural and linguistic diversity and gender equity; ethical reflection and practice; effective and experimental use of technologies as resources to people and catalysts for learning; and the integration of cross-disciplinary models enabling students, faculty and staff to engage in innovative instruction and coordinated service learning. The curriculum is organized around student learning outcomes. It is global in perspective, and of sufficient breadth and depth to meet local, regional, and statewide needs, specifically those of both isolated rural communities and inner-city populations. The campus is located on Monterey Bay, 100 miles south of San Francisco.
