CSULB seeks to recruit faculty who enthusiastically support the University’s strong commitment to the academic success of all of our students, including students of color, students with disabilities, students who are the first generation to college, veterans, students with diverse socio-economic backgrounds, and students of diverse sexual orientations and gender expressions. CSULB seeks to recruit and retain a diverse workforce as a reflection of our commitment to serving the People of California, maintaining the excellence of the University, and offering our students a rich variety of expertise, perspectives, and ways of knowing and learning.
About Our Department:
The Department of Mathematics and Statistics comprises 40 tenured/tenure-track faculty members across four disciplinary groups (pure, applied, statistics, and mathematics education) who take pride in teaching at a university that ranks near the top for the number of bachelor’s degrees awarded to historically marginalized groups. We are actively involved with community outreach through our training and placement of future teachers, coaching teams of high-schoolers for mathematics contest ARML, organizing our very own Math Day at the Beach for high-schoolers, and other activities.
Department faculty members work closely, productively, and collegially with departmental colleagues on innovative curriculum development, research, and advising. Faculty teach mathematics, statistics, and math education courses for undergraduate majors, graduate students, and broader audiences. Faculty members provide mentorship to new hires in research, the pursuit of grants, teaching, service, and general adjustments to life as faculty member. The Department seeks applicants to expand our curriculum offering and collaborate with current faculty in pure mathematics, applied mathematics, or related areas.
Long Beach is a vibrant, diverse community with beaches, walkable neighborhoods, proximity to world-class museums, a variety of outdoor recreational opportunities, and great weather. Go Beach!
