Founded in 1891, The Hotchkiss School is a competitive, college-preparatory boarding school for students in grades 9-12. Located in Lakeville, Connecticut, the School sits on 827 acres of woods, fields, and farmland in the midst of the scenic Berkshire-Taconic region by Lake Wononscopomuc — a place the Nature Conservancy calls “one of the most extraordinary landscapes in the Northeast." Hotchkiss is committed to fostering a global, diverse, and inclusive academic community and to providing a safe, secure learning environment for all constituents, adult and student alike.
The Mathematics and Computer Department is seeking applicants for a full-time teaching position in Mathematics beginning in the 2017-2018 academic year. Responsibilities include teaching courses in the core curriculum of intermediate algebra, geometry, advanced algebra, and precalculus, with the possibility of teaching courses beyond this core. Experience teaching beyond the core, in statistics, calculus, or other electives is desirable. Experience with curriculum development, innovative use of technology in the classroom, or programming is an advantage. There is the potential for the person hired to take on a leadership role within the department.
This full-time faculty position entails teaching four sections of Mathematics. Applicants should expect to be actively involved in all aspects of the School's programs through service as a residential advisor in a dormitory and as a coach in two seasons (or the equivalent).
A bachelor's degree in Mathematics or a closely related field is required and a master's degree or higher in a relevant subject is preferred. Several years of relevant teaching experience is expected.
Salary is competitive and commensurate with experience, and includes year-round housing plus utilities, and meals when school is in session. Hotchkiss provides an excellent, comprehensive benefit package, including a variety of health insurance offerings, dental, vision, life, and short and long term disability offerings, and HSA/FSA options. Retirement benefits are managed through TIAA-CREF, providing comprehensive support for meeting your retirement goals. Funding exists to support advanced degree work as well as participation in professional conferences, workshops, summer study, and travel.
Interested candidates should submit a cover letter with résumé, including three references and transcripts for all degree work via e-mail. Applications should be submitted to email@example.com, attention:
