The Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) is seeking applicants for the position of Executive Director.

The AWM is dedicated to achieving full participation and equity for women and girls in the mathematical sciences. In support of this mission, AWM seeks to promote awareness and recognition of women's achievements in the mathematical sciences, to administer programs that encourage women and girls to study and have careers in mathematics, and to build community among all mathematical scientists. AWM currently has more than 5000 members (women and men) representing a broad spectrum of the mathematical community—from the United States and around the world. AWM is one of 17 member societies of the Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences.

This position requires an advanced degree in the mathematical sciences, broadly construed; preferably a Ph.D. The Executive Director will be expected to supervise volunteers, programs, and activities, to work with volunteers in preparing grant proposals and grant reports, to assist with fundraising efforts and membership drives, to represent the AWM at some major mathematics conferences, to prepare press releases and announcements, supervise the management company and any other affiliated tasks as needed. The Executive Director will work closely with the AWM President, Executive Committee, and staff.

This position has a three year appointment, with renewable contracts of two years. This position can be combined with an existing academic appointment or other comparable position. The term begins on April 1, 2020 (but a paid training period could begin in earlier.) The AWM office is in Providence, RI, but the geographic location of the Executive Director is flexible. Ultimately, we seek an accomplished individual who is passionate about supporting women in mathematics.

Review of applications will begin on January 5, 2020 and will continue until the position is filled. Applicants are asked to describe why they feel well suited to this position and how this position could best fit with their existing plans. A letter of application, a curriculum vitae/resumé describing employment history, and contact information for at least three people willing to be called upon to provide a reference should be uploaded to mathprograms at
