Prospective Mathematics Faculty

We have a strong commitment to excellent undergraduate teaching and continued scholarly and professional development. See if our mathematics department is right for you!
Visiting Faculty in Mathematics for 2020-2021

The Mathematics Department at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology invites applications for anticipated visiting faculty positions at the Assistant Professor level, starting in the Fall of 2020. Successful candidates will have a doctorate (or be near completion) in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Statistics, or a closely-related field by Fall 2020. Candidates are expected to have a strong commitment to excellence in undergraduate teaching and continued scholarly and professional development. We are seeking applicants who will strengthen our degree programs in mathematics, biomathematics, data science, computational science, or our minor in statistics. We will consider all areas of the mathematical sciences.

Candidates who can broaden and enhance the educational experience of our students and department are especially encouraged to apply. The department and the institute place a high value on engaging students from traditionally underrepresented groups, and candidates from these groups are also especially encouraged to apply. We are seeking individuals who also interact well with both students and faculty within our science and engineering programs.

The essential job functions include: classroom teaching and student advising, curriculum development and continuous improvement, and research and other professional development activities; there will be minimal service expectations. Experience teaching undergraduate mathematics with full responsibility is desired. A research and scholarship program that supports undergraduate education or undergraduate mathematics research is also desirable.

Rose-Hulman is an institute of technology with approximately 2000 undergraduate engineering, science and mathematics students, with most of the undergraduate students in the engineering disciplines. Our mission is “to provide students with the world’s best undergraduate science, engineering and mathematics education in an environment of individual attention and support.” Every undergraduate student on campus is required to take at least five mathematics courses, consisting of calculus, differential equations, and either statistics or probability. In support of our mission, our class sizes are small, typically under 25. As a result, our mathematics faculty is large (over 25) and we are able to offer an unusually wide range of upper-level elective courses. More information regarding our department can be found at

Application: For full consideration, please apply online at and include the following materials: cover letter, curriculum vita, teaching and research statements; graduate transcripts and contact information for three letters of recommendation (with at least one specifically addressing the applicant's teaching ability and experience).
