Assistant Professor of Math, Science, or Technology Education
Department of Teaching & Learning

The Department of Teaching and Learning in the Simmons School of Education and Human Development of Southern Methodist University invites applications for a tenure-earning position at the Assistant Professor level to begin in the Fall of 2012.

Preference will be given to scholars specializing in mathematics education, though highly qualified candidates in science education and technology education will be considered and are encouraged to apply. Responsibilities include teaching, research, and service, with a reduced teaching assignment and correspondingly high expectations for research. While an appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor tenure track is anticipated, extraordinary candidates at all levels will be considered.

Qualifications include a commitment to undergraduate and graduate teaching and a strong potential for developing an externally funded research program. Candidates should have an earned doctorate in education or related field. Also, teaching experience at the elementary or secondary level is desirable.

Interested applicants should send an application package to the search committee chair, Dr. Paige Ware, as e-mail attachment(s) sent to teacher@smu.edu. If necessary, an application may be sent via mail to the search committee chair at P.O. Box 750455, Dallas, Texas, 75275-0455.

The package should include the following: 1) a letter of application detailing interest and qualifications for the position; 2) a current vita; 3) unofficial graduate transcripts; 4) a research agenda; 5) 1-2 writing sample(s) in theform of published articles or manuscripts submitted for publication; and 6) three letters of recommendation. We encourage digital applications. All e-mailed files should be in .pdf format. Letters of recommendation should be sent from the author directly to teacher@smu.edu or via mail to the address above.

To ensure full consideration for the position (#53367), applicants should submit their application package by December 31. The committee will continue to accept applications until the position is filled.
With the creation of the Research in Mathematics Education (RME) Unit, funded by the Meadows Foundation, and other activities at SMU, there are ample opportunities to be involved in exciting work in the STEM related fields.
