|Position||Assistant Professor, Mathematics & Statistics (Math Education)|
|Department||Mathematics & Statistics, Faculty of Science|
|Contract type||Faculty; Permanent (tenure track); 100% full-time|
|Start date||August 1, 2018|
|Review date||January 26, 2018|
The University of the Fraser Valley is nationally recognized for its commitment to teaching excellence, community relevance, and Indigenization. With over 100 programs, from graduate and undergraduate arts, science, and professional degrees, to trades and technical education, university preparation, and continuing education UFV is the school of choice for over 15,000 students.
The Department of Mathematics and Statistics invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor beginning August 1, 2018, subject to budgetary approval. Interested individuals who currently hold a rank higher than Assistant are also encouraged to apply, as the Dean may take into account the successful candidate’s current position and experience.
We are seeking collegial, energetic and innovative individuals who have an outstanding ability to teach mathematics and mathematics education courses at the undergraduate level, and to communicate effectively with students both in and out of the classroom. The successful candidate must be able to instruct across a broad range of the undergraduate mathematics curriculum, including courses in elementary and middle-school math education.
The ideal candidate will be able to develop new and innovative programs and courses, apply technology in the delivery of our programs and courses, integrate his or her research or scholarly activity into teaching, and contribute to the scholarship of teaching and learning in mathematics. Applicants with research experience in any area of math or math education will be considered, but preference will be given to those whose research background and/or current area of research involves innovative integration of digital media communications and/or Indigenous ways of knowing, learning, and sharing mathematics into pedagogical practice.
While we are primarily a teaching-oriented university and department, the successful candidate will be expected to maintain a program of scholarly activity or research, preferably one which involves students and the community, and to commit to participation and engagement in professional development activity at the institution and, ideally, in the community as well. The ideal candidate will also have a strong commitment to service within the department, the university at large and the community.
The successful candidate must have either a PhD in Mathematics Education (or one near completion) with some graduate level math courses completed, or a Masters in Mathematics Education and a PhD in Mathematics (or one near completion). Preference will be given to candidates with graduate degrees in both Mathematics and Mathematics Education.
The Selection Advisory Committee will begin reviewing applications on January 26, 2018; however, the position will remain open until filled.
Candidates should submit a curriculum vitae; evidence of teaching excellence, including official student evaluations if available; a one-page statement of teaching philosophy, including examples of innovative approaches to teaching and course design; a one-page statement of a proposed research or scholarly activity program, and names and contact information for three referees. Applications, citing Posting 2017.210, should be sent to:
