The position requires an MA, MS, or higher degree in Mathematics.  Qualified candidates will have at least ten years of teaching experience in algebra-based courses and demonstrate a commitment to working with students who struggle with math.  Duties will include teaching courses in Intermediate Algebra, holding regular office hours and tutoring sessions, and collaborating with faculty on program assessment and development initiatives. Successful candidates will, through their teaching, scholarship or service, demonstrate a commitment to building a diverse community.

Applicants should submit a letter of interest, statement of teaching philosophy, current CV, transcripts, and three letters of recommendation. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.

Founded in 1855, Berea College achieved national distinction as the first coeducational and interracial college in the South. Berea has a longstanding commitment to interracial education, and is one of the most racially diverse private liberal arts colleges in the United States. With an emphasis on service to Appalachia and beyond, Berea enrolls 1,650 students from 40 states and 60 countries. Berea College only admits students who are unable to afford tuition and provides all of them a no-tuition promise, valued at more than $176,000 over four years. Berea’s students excel in the College’s supportive yet demanding academic environment, and many are the first in their families to graduate college. As one of eight federally recognized Work Colleges, all Berea students hold a position in which they work 10-12 hours weekly. Washington Monthly ranked Berea College No. 1 in the South, while the Wall Street Journal and Times (of London) Higher Education ranked Berea the No. 1 College in the country in terms of affordability. In their 2019 report US News and World Report ranked Berea as the best liberal arts college in Kentucky; No. 8 in Best Undergraduate Teaching; and No. 2 in Most Innovative Schools. Berea’s recognition comes from success in educating and graduating academically talented, low-income students who become service-oriented leaders in their professions and communities.

Located where the Bluegrass Region meets the Cumberland Mountains, the town of Berea (pop. 14,000) lies forty miles south of Lexington and is approximately two hours from Cincinnati, Louisville, and Knoxville. More information about Berea College is available at www.berea.edu.
