The Department of Elementary and Special Education in the College of Education invites applications and nominations for two tenure-track Assistant Professor of Elementary Mathematics Education positions. The home campus for these positions will be our Statesboro campus. Some limited travel to our Armstrong or Liberty campuses may be required.
Position Description. Reporting to the Chair of the Department of Elementary and Special Education, the Assistant Professor of Elementary Mathematics Education positions primarily focus upon teaching mathematics education methods courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels and supervising teacher candidates in both the department’s traditional Statesboro-campus-based undergraduate program and our fully-online MAT program in Elementary Education. The teaching requires the modeling of effective instructional practices for diverse student populations and the use of instructional technology in face-to-face, hybrid, and online learning environments.Some supervision responsibilities will require in-person observation of undergraduate teacher candidates in local K-5 public school classrooms. Other supervision responsibilities will be fully-online observations of graduate-level in-service teachers. Scholarly responsibilities include maintaining an active research agenda yielding regular publications, professional presentations, and/or external grant proposals. In addition, the position involves collaborating with faculty across the College of Education, especially on our nearby campus in Savannah, and performing service to the department, college, University, regional schools, and professional community. Our department supports faculty efforts to integrate teaching, scholarship, and service through multi-faceted initiatives. Finally, the position can provide multiple opportunities to serve as a member and/or chair of doctoral and educational specialist committees. The positions are 10-month, tenure-track appointments, and the salary is competitive and commensurate with qualifications and experience.
