Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Mathematics Education

University of Auckland, New Zealand - Department of Mathematics

Two permanent full-time positions in Mathematics Education

Applications are invited for two permanent full-time positions at Lecturer/Senior Lecturer level (equivalent to Assistant/Associate Professor in the USA system) in mathematics education in the Department of Mathematics. We welcome applications from excellent academics who are interested in joining our vibrant research and teaching group in the Mathematics Education Unit. Candidates’ research expertise should complement and enhance the existing research strengths in the Mathematics Education Unit. We expect that at least one of the appointments will be at Lecturer level.

Candidates are expected to develop and lead innovative research programmes (theoretical and empirical), collaborate with other researchers within and outside the University, supervise graduate students (domestic and international), teach undergraduate and graduate courses, apply for competitive research grants, and contribute through high-quality service and outreach activities. The positions are intended for candidates with a PhD in Mathematics Education, Learning Sciences, Cognitive Science, Mathematics or related field and who have demonstrated, or have the potential to make excellent international contributions in mathematics education. Evidence of a strong mathematics background is necessary, and evidence of the ability to attract grant funding is advantageous.

We are looking for visionary academics to build on the 25-year legacy of research and teaching excellence in the Mathematics Education Unit within the Department of Mathematics. Our department is the largest and strongest mathematics department in NZ and offers programmes in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, and Mathematics Education. The interaction between research mathematics and mathematics education is an important feature of this environment. The Department of Mathematics has a large PhD programme and a vibrant research and teaching culture. More details are available at http://www.math.auckland.ac.nz/. The University of Auckland is New Zealand’s leading university.

The Department of Mathematics strives to provide a collegial work environment that promotes a healthy work-life balance and a stimulating research atmosphere.

The positions are available from 2018, and starting dates will be agreed on with successful candidates. Informal enquiries about the positions and Mathematics Education Unit may be directed to the Head of Mathematics Education Unit, Associate Professor Caroline Yoon c.yoon@auckland.ac.nz. More general enquiries about the Department and the University may be made to the Head of Department, Professor Bernd Krauskopf b.krauskopf@auckland.ac.nz
