The Department of Teaching, Learning, and Teacher Education seeks a tenure-track assistant professor who can help prepare effective educators; collaborate with department colleagues, mathematics and STEM content specialists, and classroom teachers; and attract increased national interest and funding to nationally visible programs in mathematics education at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Our new colleague would be joining a dynamic and committed community of scholars in the department and a collaborative faculty group in elementary education. The K-6 teacher preparation program graduates approximately150 teacher candidates per year and benefits from a long-standing and unique partnership with the Department of Mathematics in the College of Arts and Sciences. We anticipate expanding our faculty in elementary mathematics education not only to prepare students for initial teacher certification, but also to provide professional learning at the graduate level and expand opportunities for funded research and scholarship.
