TT at Marlboro College

Marlboro College, a liberal arts college of 300 students and 41 faculty members, invites applications from broadly trained, dedicated teachers for a full-time, tenure-track position in Physics.

Candidates must have a broad knowledge of physics, including experimental, theoretical, and computational approaches, and show a passion for teaching.

College teaching experience and PhD required.
