The Department of Mathematics
of Colgate University is accepting applications for a 2-year visiting assistant professorship starting Fall 2016.

We welcome interpretations of diversity in the broadest sense; diversity may occur in, but is not limited to, issues involving: age, culture, ethnicity, gender, political beliefs, race, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, and socio-economic status.
