The Department of Mathematics and Statistics (http://www.math.sdsu.edu/) at San Diego State University invites applications for a full-time tenure track position in Mathematics Education at the Assistant or Associate Professor level beginning in August 2014.
We are looking for an applicant with a research program that is consistent with the goals of a university-wide Strategic Plan (https://newscenter.sdsu.edu/strategicplan/images/finalstrategic plan.pdf ), which includes calls for reaching out to under-represented students through instructional innovations and other efforts that will result in greater student success and retention and eliminate achievement gaps. In the spirit of these goals, we seek to hire a mathematics education researcher with a research program focused on broadening participation in STEM fields (for example, issues of identity and power, social justice, equity and diversity, language diversity and classroom practices, or culturally responsive pedagogy). We are also looking for a colleague to join our large group of mathematics educators, from the College of Sciences and the College of Education, who conduct collaborative research through the Center for Research in Mathematics and Science Education (CRMSE, http://www.sci.sdsu.edu/CRMSE/): Nadine Bezuk, Janet Bowers, Lisa Lamb, Joanne Lobato, Ricardo Nemirovsky, Susan Nickerson, Randy Philipp, Chris Rasmussen, and Rafaela Santa Cruz.
