Mathematics. The candidate will also be expected to mentor and advise Masters
level students, and to develop and maintain an active, extramurally-funded
research program in his or her area of specialty.

Employment will begin in August 2009.

practical experience. Benefits include a generous TIAA/CREFF or Virgin Islands
