The Department has fifteen tenured or tenure-track positions, six of whom are in Computer Science and nine of whom are Mathematics (there is some crossover between the two programs).  Within Mathematics, the research interests include (in no particular order) topology, differential geometry, operations research, coding theory, applied math/differential equations, history of math, functional analysis, and cryptography.

A junior sabbatical program is available in the fourth year (half-salary for one year or full salary for a semester).  Summer funding is included for the first two years. The teaching load for this position is 15 hours in the first year (2 courses in the fall and 3 courses in the spring).  A typical teaching load would include one course of the upper level statistics course together with one or two courses of a lower level course.  Independent studies and internship opportunities are strongly encouraged for our majors, and our department has a strong recent track record of engaging in top quality undergraduate research projects (students from our department have won University of Richmond awards for their research, and we have won some national awards as well).
