access to many recreational opportunities as well as metropolitan
facilities and major research institutions.

Successful candidates will be expected to obtain a Ph.D. or
equivalent advanced degree in mathematics education or a related
field by September 2014; have a Master's degree in mathematics or its
equivalent (minimum of 24 graduate credits in mathematics or
statistics); demonstrate evidence of active scholarship, including
