Tenure Track Open Rank, Mathematical Sciences - Bentley University

The Department of Mathematical Sciences at Bentley University—an independent, private business-oriented university located in suburban Boston—invites applications for a tenure-track position beginning Fall 2022. We seek candidates with research strengths in computational statistics, data science, machine learning, or optimization, but are open to candidates with other research interests that align with the department’s overall scholarly mission. Candidates with the ability and willingness to teach courses in data science and/or computational statistics are particularly encouraged to apply.

About the Institution:

Bentley University is a place for successful leaders who set out to create positive change in our communities, organizations and the world. We believe in doing business and doing good at the same time. Our students, alumni, faculty and staff embody this ethos in everything they do.

The Mathematical Sciences Department offers thriving undergraduate programs in mathematical sciences, actuarial sciences, and data analytics. We also offer an MS in Business Analytics, and are active in the PhD program in Business, both in teaching and in doctoral student supervision. We value collaboration with faculty in other departments and have a particularly strong record of leadership in such activities. Candidates are encouraged to learn more about our department by visiting http://www.bentley.edu/mathematics/.

Our department is extremely collegial and enjoys an impressive level of diversity among our full-time faculty, which includes an almost equal representation of male and female faculty who originate from 10 countries. We welcome applications from all backgrounds, in particular, those from historically underrepresented groups in the mathematical sciences. 

Candidate Qualifications:

Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in Mathematics, Statistics, or a closely related discipline.

Application Instructions:

Applicants should include a cover letter, current curriculum vita, research statement, and teaching statement. Applicants should submit a diversity statement with a description of how they would contribute to the development of an equitable and inclusive community in the department through their teaching, research, and service. Names and contact information for three references (at least one of which should address teaching) are also required upon application. Bentley will contact such references confidentially for candidates moving forward in the process. Candidates should indicate how their research and teaching interests and expertise could integrate with the department’s mission. The review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
