The primary responsibility for the second position will be teaching multiple sections of algebra-based General Physics I in the fall and General Physics II in the spring. Strong preference will be given to candidates capable of mentoring undergraduate research projects in astronomy, physics, or engineering. An M.S. or Ph.D. in Physics, Astronomy, or a related field is required for consideration.
