The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of San Francisco invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position to begin August 2016. We seek well-qualified candidates in the areas of applied mathematics or statistics, with a focus on the extraction of knowledge from data. Relevant fields include, but are not limited to, data science, modeling, applied probability, applied statistics, and machine learning.

Special consideration will be given to candidates who can directly contribute to the interdisciplinary bachelor's degree in data science, as well as the traditional undergraduate mathematics and statistics program, and the master's program in analytics (MSAN). The successful candidate will have university teaching experience and an earned doctorate by the time of appointment.

The position requires a commitment to excellence in teaching within a culturally diverse environment, as well as the potential for excellence in research and scholarship. Close interaction between students and faculty is a hallmark of the department, and preference will be given to candidates who can involve students in undergraduate research projects. The teaching load follows a two- year cycle, with a 2-2 teaching load one year and a 2-3 load the next.

Candidates should submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, statements of teaching philosophy and research plans, teaching evaluations, graduate transcripts, and three letters of recommendation. All of the above elements are required to complete your application. Preliminary interviews will be conducted in January 2016 at the Joint Mathematics Meetings in Seattle, or by videoconference.

_Contact_:
Completed applications must be submitted online by December 1, 2015 in order to ensure full consideration.

We invite candidates to find out more about our department at www.usfca.edu/artsci/math/ and information about the Data Science Major can be found at www.usfca.edu/artsci/bsds/.
