Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous alumnus, the Department of Mathematics has established a series of visiting assistant professorships, named after the late Harold L. Dorwart, a long time member of the faculty. The goal of these three-year postdoctoral positions is to bring a steady flow of outstanding new mathematicians to Trinity. Each Dorwart assistant professor will be matched with a senior faculty member, who will be both a mentor and collaborator.
The ideal candidate for the Dorwart assistant professorship will have both strong research potential and a commitment to teaching at a liberal arts institution. The teaching load is five courses per year; one of those courses will be a research seminar taught in conjunction with the senior faculty member. To make the positions as attractive as possible, the salaries will be extremely competitive and will be supplemented with a travel and research expense stipend.
Current and Past Dorwart Professors:
|Kirsti Wash Kuenzel
|Li-An Daniel Wang
Geometric Group Theory
|Harmonic Analysis and PDEs
|Geometric Group Theory
|Graph Theory and Combinatorics
