Assistant Professor of Applied Math
Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston, MA seeks to fill an Assistant Professor of Applied Mathematics position that would start in September 2016.
We are especially seeking candidates with data science and/or operations research and/or actuarial expertise in industry and/or in higher education.
The majority of students that our applied math professors teach are engineering majors and computer science majors. Many of these students are also applied math minor students. Professors in the Department of Applied Mathematics do teach and mentor applied math major students, also, but they are a small percentage of the student body. We value creative and passionate educators that can teach all students.
We are also excited about educating students in an environment that fosters EPIC-Learning: Externally Collaborative, Project-based, Interdisciplinary Culture for Learning. This EPIC approach to learning mimics what happens in many workplaces across the country. The undergraduate Applied Mathematics major is an interdisciplinary curriculum, so we seek applications from candidates with wide intellectual interests and a demonstrated commitment to excellence in teaching, advising and scholarship. The ideal candidate must be able to develop interdisciplinary projects and foster connections within the Applied Math Department, with other departments at Wentworth and with the external professional community that enrich student experience.
Faculty participate in teaching (especially project-based); curricular
development; scholarly activities; advising applied math majors and
potentially other majors; recruiting students for the Applied Math B.S. program; collaborating with our Industrial Professional Advisory Committee (and recruiting new members for this committee, as needed) and other service to the Applied Mathematics Department and to the Institute.
If you are interested in preparing our next generation of engineers and designers and if you have substantial experience with project-based learning and undergraduate mathematics education innovation then we’d love to hear from you. Please apply at https://jobs.wit.edu/. In your application please include:1) a cover letter that addresses this job description; 2) a current cv or resume, including references; and 3) a statement of your teaching philosophy.
Wentworth seeks to increase the diverse perspectives of its faculty and encourages applications from members of underrepresented groups in STEM.
REQUIREMENTS: Master’s degree is required. A Ph.D. in mathematics, applied mathematics, statistics or a related STEM field is preferred. Teaching experience at the university level also required.
To apply, please visit our online application site at https://jobs.wit.edu/postings/2785. Wentworth is an AA/EEO employer. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply. Wentworth is a tobacco-free campus.
As the chief executive of CEC, the Dean directs educational, research, and fundraising activities; oversees budget, market-rate programs and philanthropy, compliance with accreditation standards, community and global outreach, marketing and enrollment, interdisciplinary initiatives, and administrative and financial affairs.

The Dean will have a record of fostering excellence; growing research; and promoting faculty and student success. An earned doctorate in engineering, computing, or related field is strongly preferred with a record of research/scholarship that merits appointment as a tenured full professor. Exceptional leaders in complex settings involving multiple stakeholders will be considered; a background of substantive leadership within a leading engineering or computing school is preferred.
Screening will begin in early July and continue until an appointment is made. Please direct nominations/inquiries/applications (cover letter, cv, and names of five references) to FIU.CECDean@divsearch.com:
