The Department of Mathematics at Michigan State University invites applications for a fixed-term faculty instructor position with an expected load of 6 courses per academic year split between teaching and coordinating. The department seeks candidates whose teaching or service has prepared them to  contribute to our commitment to diversity and inclusion in higher education. The initial appointment, with an anticipated start date of August 16, 2022, will be  for one academic year. Renewal for a multi-year appointment term up to three years will be considered based on available department funding and  performance. In addition to teaching large lectures in gateway mathematics classes (ranging from quantitative literacy and college algebra through multivariable calculus), the successful candidate will also gain experience and training in coordinating instruction for large enrollment courses with multiple instructors of record. This will be done as part of a vibrant, diverse, and close-knit team of career instructional experts and mentors within the Department of Mathematics which serves over 10,000 students per year across various backgrounds and career interests. Once hired into the team, the new member can  expect exciting instructional opportunities and career advice from their colleagues aimed at taking their instructional and mentoring capabilities to the next level. Other local resources—the Center for Instructional Mentoring (housed in the Department of Mathematics) and the MSU PRIME Program — will provide rich opportunities for additional instructional training and career development.

We seek candidates who have demonstrated the ability to teach effectively in multiple modalities, the potential to coordinate and lead a team of individuals with different instructional responsibilities, and a commitment to cultivating equitable and inclusive learning environments.
