Tenure-Track Faculty Position in Mathematics

The Mathematics Department at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology invites applications for tenure-track faculty positions at the Assistant Professor level, starting in the Fall of 2024.  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.”  If this resonates with you, then we think you’ll love what we have to offer.

We seek inspiring educators who will strengthen our degree programs in mathematics, biomathematics, data science, computational science, or our minor in statistics. We encourage candidates with expertise in any area of the mathematical sciences; for one of the positions applicants with expertise in applied mathematics, and in particular scientific computing, are strongly preferred. 

Requirements include a doctorate in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Statistics, or a closely related field by the start of employment. Candidates are expected to have a strong commitment to excellence in undergraduate teaching and continued scholarly and professional development. Experience teaching undergraduate courses in the mathematical sciences with full responsibility is preferred. Candidates with the ability to advance the Department's commitment to diversity and inclusion through research, teaching and outreach with relevant programs, goals and activities are also preferred.

Essential job functions include classroom teaching, curriculum development and continuous improvement, research and other professional development activities, student advising and service to the department and institute. The department and the institute place a high value on engaging students from traditionally underrepresented groups, and candidates from these groups are especially encouraged to apply.  Individuals who interact well with both students and faculty within our science, engineering and computer science programs are also encouraged to apply.

Rose-Hulman is an institute of technology with approximately 2200 undergraduate engineering, science and mathematics students, with most of the undergraduate students in the engineering disciplines. 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. As a result, our mathematics faculty is large (over 25) and we are able to offer a wide range of upper-level elective courses.  More information regarding our department can be found at

Application: Applicants must submit their application both through MathJobs and also through Rose-Hulman’s Faculty Employment Opportunities website.  Applicants must submit the following items:

  1. Cover letter
  2. Curriculum vitae
  3. Statement on teaching philosophy and practices that demonstrates you share our passion for teaching and mentoring undergraduate students.
  4. Statement on professional development/research goals. Note that the Mathematics Department broadly defines professional development as “growth in a faculty member’s understanding of mathematics, its application, or growth in pedagogical skills.” 
  5. Statement demonstrating commitment to diversity and inclusion. This statement should highlight your particular strengths, experiences, or perspectives that might serve to broaden and enhance our students’ educational experience.  It should also demonstrate an understanding and acceptance of equity, inclusion and diversity topics, and that they are broader than just race, ethnicity and gender.
  6. Graduate transcripts (official or unofficial).
  7. At least three (3) letters of recommendation, with at least one specifically addressing the applicant's teaching ability and experience.  Letters will be collected only via MathJobs.

Review of applications will begin on October 15 and will continue until the positions are filled.  All completed applications received by November 1 will be given full consideration.
