New Position at the MAA
Associate Director for Student Activities

Mathematical Association of America
Washington, DC

The Mathematical Association of America (MAA) seeks an Associate Director to oversee a wide range of activities for both undergraduate and graduate students and to develop new initiatives to advance the MAA in the area of student services and programs.

The Associate Director will provide both programmatic and administrative supervision to ongoing activities, such as the MAA Student Chapter Program, undergraduate student paper/poster sessions and poster sessions and workshops for graduate students at national meetings. Working with the Committee on Undergraduate Student Activities and Chapters and the Committee on Graduate Students, the Associate Director will seek to identify successful programs currently in place in MAA's Sections that are suitable for expansion, and develop new programs such as establishing a national network for student chapters.

The Associate Director will oversee externally-funded programs for students and will develop proposals to continue existing programs and to establish new programs. The Associate Director will lead MAA efforts to develop a comprehensive collection of web-based resources for students, and work with other MAA staff and member volunteers to build an MAA student website that will be the primary web destination for students of mathematics at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

The Associate Director for Student Activities will report to the Director of Programs and Services. The successful candidate will have an advanced degree in one of the mathematical sciences, and experience working with students both in and outside of the classroom through math clubs and/or mentoring undergraduate research. Experience using on-line instruction or development of web content is a plus. Though this is a continuing position, we welcome applications from faculty members who wish to take a leave of absence from their current position.

The mission of the MAA is to advance the mathematical sciences. The MAA, with almost 30,000 members, is the largest professional association with a focus on mathematics that is accessible at the undergraduate level. Membership includes college and university faculty and students, high school teachers, individuals from business, industry and government, and others who appreciate mathematics.

Applications will be accepted and reviewed as received, but it is expected that the position will begin July 1, 2007, though a January 2007 start date will be considered. The position is located at the national headquarters of the MAA in Washington, DC. Salary will be based upon the candidate's credentials or current salary for a reassignment position. The MAA offers a generous benefits package.

Candidates should send a resume and letter of interest to:

Ms. Marlesa Adams
Chief of Staff
Mathematical Association of America
1529 18th Street, NW
Washington, DC 20036

Applications may be submitted electronically to References will be requested after review of applications. Applications from individuals from underrepresented groups are encouraged. AA/EOE.
