VAP at Carleton College

The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Carleton College is seeking applications for one or more temporary, one-year positions (with the possibility for renewal) at the Assistant Professor level starting September 2012. We seek a recent PhD in experimental, computational or theoretical physics with a strong commitment to teaching in a liberal-arts environment. Involvement of undergraduate students in research is strongly encouraged but not required for this position. Carleton College is a highly selective liberal arts college with about 2000 undergraduates located 45 miles south of Minneapolis/St. Paul and is on a three term per year schedule. Our eight-member department strives to provide a challenging yet supportive environment for our enthusiastic and intellectually demanding students.

In addition, arrange for three letters of recommendation to arrive by the same date. They should be sent in pdf format to physics@carleton.edu, or to Chair, Search Committee, Department of Physics and Astronomy, Carleton College, One North College Street, Northfield, MN 55057-4025.
