Announcement for Mathematics Education Postdoctoral Scholar Position

Oregon State University Department of Mathematics is pleased to
invite candidates to apply for a postdoctoral scholar position in
Mathematics Education, beginning September 15, 2014.

In this position, the postdoctoral scholar will be responsible for
teaching courses in the mathematics department and conducting
mathematics education research. Oregon State is on the quarter
system, and the postdoctoral teaching load is five courses over three
quarter terms. The postdoctoral scholar will receive mentoring in
both teaching and research, will have time to further their own
research program, and will have opportunities to form collaborations
with faculty.

Within the mathematics department, math education faculty members are
currently researching topics that include: postsecondary instruction,
institutional re-design of college algebra, video-based professional
development, student's learning and cognition (particularly
combinatorial thinking), the role of examples in proving, and the
role of technology in the classroom. The applicant's research
interests need not align exactly with one of the above topics,
although some broad points of connection are desirable. While the
position is housed in the mathematics department, the candidate will
join a vibrant, campus-wide mathematics education community, which
includes a Center for Research in Lifelong STEM Learning.

A PhD in mathematics or a PhD in mathematics education with at least
the equivalent of a Masters degree in mathematics must be completed
before the starting date of the position. Candidates should show
clear evidence of research interests in mathematics education, with
strong accomplishments or promise in both research and teaching and
must value working with colleagues and students from diverse
backgrounds. This is a fixed term annual appointment with the
possibility of up to two subsequent one-year appointments, depending
on availability of funding and performance.

Applicants must submit the following: AMS cover sheet; cover letter
for the application describing experience, qualifications, interests,
and evidence of teaching excellence; curriculum vita; statement of
research objectives; statement of teaching objectives; and three
letters of reference, at least one of which addresses the applicant's
teaching ability or potential. Applicants must also list in the
additional question provided on the form specific person(s) at OSU
with whom the applicant would expect to have research collaboration.
For consideration all application materials must be submitted via

Screening of applications begins January 15, 2014 and continues until
positions are filled.

OSU is an AA/EOE and actively seeks diversity among its employees and
encourages applications from women and minorities.
