The Department of Mathematics at the University of California, Los Angeles, invites applications for E.R. Hedrick Assistant Adjunct Professorships. Appointments are for three years. Applicants must possess a Ph.D. in a relevant area and should show evidence of excellence in teaching and research. Preference will be given to applicants whose research connects to faculty interests in the department or who can address specific teaching needs.
The teaching load for Hedrick Assistant Adjunct Professors is typically four courses per year. Apart from the standard Hedrick Assistant Adjunct Professorship line, there are three specializations that address particular research and teaching needs in the department. Applicants hired for one of these specializations must be willing to primarily teach courses in these areas.
Specialization in Computational and Applied Mathematics (CAM): The teaching load for these positions is normally reduced by research funding to two one-quarter courses per year.
Specialization for Program in Computing (PIC): Applicants for this specialization must show strong promise as instructors for courses in computing.
Specialization in Financial Instruction (FAM): Applicants for this specialization must have research-level expertise in a field related to financial or actuarial mathematics, and must be willing to master new content in these areas for instructional purposes, as needed. Relevant fields include probability, statistics, financial, and actuarial mathematics.
Applications and supporting documentation must be submitted online via: https://recruit.apo.ucla.edu/JPF06918
