UMass Boston is seeking applicants for an Assistant Professor (tenure-track) and Director of Educator Preparation.
Candidates with backgrounds in mathematics or computer science education are especially encouraged to apply. UMass Boston is home to the Center of Science and Mathematics in Context (COSMIC), which focuses on the preparation of STEM teachers in urban contexts. We are particularly interested in candidates who do work related to social justice mathematics.
UMass Boston considers itself a “research university with a teaching soul.” We are Boston’s only public university, the third most diverse university in the United States, an urban-serving institution (and part of the MSI program), and one of the best colleges of education in the nation. We are also located on a beautiful seaside campus in the vibrant neighborhood of Dorchester.
This is a unique position with a 1-1 teaching load and the remaining workload dedicated to overseeing and developing our teacher preparation programs that span from early childhood to secondary education with an emphasis on justice and equity. This faculty member will work with our excellent practicum office staff who are responsible for placing student teachers and completing state teacher licensure tasks.
