Mathematics Magazine Editor Search

The MAA seeks to identify candidates to succeed Michael A. Jones as editor of Mathematics Magazine when his term expires in December 2019.

Published five times a year, in February, April, June, and October, Mathematics Magazine offers lively exposition on a wide range of mathematical topics, presented in an appealing expository style accessible to both teachers and students of collegiate mathematics.

The ideal candidate will have a wide-ranging interest in the culture, history, and applications of mathematics, as well as experience with journal publication processes. The editor is expected to lead an editorial board and effectively coordinate both the submission and production procedures. Working in cooperation with the MAA’s Electronic Production and Publishing Manager and MAA's Journals Managing Editor, the editor will create timely issues of the highest quality that advance the understanding of mathematics and contribute to the MAA’s long-standing commitment to expository excellence.

The editor has a great deal of agency in shaping the content of each issue. The creativity and vision required make this a uniquely rewarding professional opportunity, as does the broad engagement with authors and readers from across the mathematical community. The time commitment is roughly two to three days per week. Duties extend throughout the year. Support, largely in the form of course release time and travel reimbursements, is provided.

Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, the names of three references, and a statement of experience and interest containing ideas for the journal. Nominations are welcome. Review of applicants will begin March 15, 2018, with appointment as editor-elect to commence on January 1, 2019. The five-year editorial term runs January 1, 2020, to December 31, 2024.
