The Department of Mathematics at Indiana University seeks a full-time teaching faculty member to serve as Director of General Education Mathematical Modelling. The position begins August 1, 2022. The appointment will be as a Clinical Assistant Professor, Clinical Associate Professor, or Clinical Professor, depending on experience. The Director will lead and support current and future faculty in revising, developing and executing an excellent program of study in foundational mathematics.
