Mathematics Teacher-Scholar Symposium (MaTSS)

The Mathematics Teacher-Scholar Symposium (MaTSS) at Reed College is a two-day conference for future mathematics faculty members who are deeply committed to advancing the goals of diversity, equity, and inclusion in the mathematical sciences. The goal of MaTSS is to encourage emerging researchers committed to inclusive curricular and pedagogical practices to consider careers as teacher-scholars in a liberal arts setting. Due to the current COVID pandemic, the event will take place virtually May 22-23, 2021.

The event will include:

  • Panel discussion on working and succeeding as a teacher-scholar in a liberal arts setting
  • Presentation and discussion on creating application materials tailored to liberal arts faculty positions
  • Practice job talks by participants, with ample opportunity for feedback

Participants will also be invited to submit their application materials following the event for individual critiques by senior faculty at Reed College. 

Due to shown interest, we will open some of the sessions to senior faculty members who would like to attend in order to help their students.  To attend, please complete the application form.
