Application Deadline: November 15, 2017

The College

Harvey Mudd College is a highly selective undergraduate institution of science, engineering and mathematics. A quarter of our students are National Merit Scholars, a fifth are high-school valedictorians and one year of high-school calculus is required for admission. Each year there are about 40 graduates in mathematics, mathematical biology and mathematics/computer science with roughly half going on to graduate school. The College enrolls about 750 students and is a member of the Claremont Colleges consortium, comprising five undergraduate colleges, the Claremont Graduate University, and the Keck Graduate Institute of Applied Life Sciences, forming together an academic community of about 5000 students. There is an active research community of over 50 mathematicians and statisticians in the consortium.

Claremont is situated approximately 35 miles east of downtown Los Angeles, at the foot of the San Gabriel mountains. The community is known for its tree-lined streets and village charm. It is an easy drive from Claremont to cultural attractions of the greater Los Angeles area, as well as the ocean, mountains and deserts of Southern California.

Harvey Mudd College is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to the recruitment of candidates historically underrepresented on college faculties. Experience with or demonstrated ability to effectively teach students from diverse backgrounds will be considered among the criteria for appointment.
