CEU is an English language university with three undergraduate programs:  Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (PPE), Culture, Politics, and Society (CPS), and Data Science and Society (DSS). Students of the undergraduate programs come from all over the world and the teaching faculty is also very international. To improve the training of students in the fundamentals of mathematics, CEU is looking to hire a full-time lecturer.



We expect applications from mathematicians or mathematics teachers, with a PhD and a strong record in teaching introductory university mathematics.

The candidate will be expected to participate in administrative service.


What we offer:

We offer a competitive salary as well as additional benefits (e.g. pension plan) and international academic environment.


How to apply:

Applicants need to submit:

1. A comprehensive C.V.,

2. Names of three referees (candidates should ask two referees to send recommendations directly to the CEU),

3. A statement of teaching.

Please send your complete application package to: advert099@ceu.edu - including the job code in the subject line: 2022/099.
