The Ithaca College Department of Mathematics announces the search for its Post-doctoral Fellowship in Mathematics Promoting Access and Equity in Teaching for 2019-20.
This fellowship supports promising scholars in the mathematical sciences who are also committed to increasing access and equity in mathematics. The Ithaca College Department of Mathematics is a community of teachers, learners, and scholars focused on supporting and mentoring students through innovative teaching, interaction outside of class, collaborating on research, and social events. We are committed to identifying and addressing factors that improve access to high-quality mathematics and are looking for individuals who are eager to contribute to this ongoing effort. This experience will prepare the fellowship recipient for tenure track appointments within liberal arts or comprehensive colleges/universities.
Special consideration will be given to individuals with interest and/or experience in implementing mathematics-teaching practices that promote all students' opportunity to learn. We particularly encourage members of historically underrepresented groups in mathematics to apply.
