The teaching load is 18 credit hours per academic year (an average of 9 credit hours per semester), including both service courses such as calculus and introductory statistics and upper-level courses for majors. The successful candidate will also be expected to participate in mentoring undergraduate students beyond the classroom, and applicants are encouraged to describe particular interests in this regard.

Applications received by December 15, 2020, will be given full consideration. We expect to conduct preliminary interviews virtually in January 2021. Questions may be directed to the Search Committee Chair, Dr. Joel Louwsma, at jlouwsma@niagara.edu.

The Department of Mathematics, part of the College of Arts and Sciences, offers majors in mathematics and actuarial science and minors in mathematics, statistics, and actuarial science. Students in mathematics education programs take many of our upper-level courses, and we teach students from across the university in our service courses. In recent years, a number of our students have completed honors theses, conducted research with faculty, participated in REUs or internships, and/or presented at conferences.
