Bentley University – Tenure Track Assistant Professor, Mathematical Sciences (Two Openings)

The Department of Mathematical Sciences at Bentley University—an independent, private business-oriented university located in suburban Boston—invites applications for two tenure track Assistant Professor positions, to begin in Fall 2024.

We seek candidates to add to our strengths in statistics, data science, machine learning and applied mathematics. Candidates with the ability and willingness to teach in more than one of these areas at both the undergraduate and graduate levels are especially attractive.  Providing a stimulating academic community for both faculty and students, Bentley supports its faculty as they pursue cutting-edge research and bring their expertise and real world understanding into the classroom. We seek qualified faculty who represent diverse backgrounds, interests and talents and share a commitment to high ethical standards and a willingness to embrace challenge and change.

Bentley is committed to the teacher-scholar model where teaching, scholarship, and service excellence are expected and valued. The Mathematical Sciences Department offers undergraduate degrees in mathematical sciences, actuarial sciences, and data analytics. We also offer an MS in Business Analytics, a leading program with a current enrollment of about 130 students. We support the Advanced Standing in Business Analytics program (Advanced Standing in Business Analytics | Bentley University), an accelerated graduate degree for high-achieving students. The department is active in the Executive Ph.D. program in Business, both in teaching and doctoral supervision.

The Mathematical Sciences department is leading the Center for Analytics and Data Science (Center for Analytics and Data Science (CADS) | Bentley University), where students and faculty actively engage outside of the classroom. We value collaboration with faculty in other departments and have a particularly strong record of leadership in such activities.
