Wentworth Institute of Technology 

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 or actuarial experience 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 Curricula 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 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.
