Position Summary Information

Job Summary/Basic Function

Job Summary:
The faculty and staff of the Department of Mathematics at Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas, are seeking one or more instructors of mathematics, pending funding. Lamar University is implementing Texas State HB 2223, integrating college-level and developmental mathematics courses into an effective core pre-requisite pathways model. These instructors will support, participate in and enhance the development of this program. Lamar University faculty teach with a variety of pedagogical techniques. Instructors will have the opportunity to discuss teaching with other faculty who teach in these different methods.

Applicants must have proven record of excellence in teaching first-year mathematics pathways courses. These include introductory statistics, college algebra, pre-calculus or mathematics for liberal arts students. Instructors may be asked to teach a combination of face-to-face and online

courses and pathways models to improve student retention and success.

Mathematics Education or closely related field, including at least 18 hours of graduate level mathematics courses; a PhD is strongly preferred.
