The Department is committed to broadening the participation of under-represented groups in STEM fields. Our curriculum includes interactive teaching, computation, and laboratory environments, as well as more traditional classroom settings. We aim to engage students in collaborative endeavors, promote meaningful interactions between students and faculty, and provide a learning environment that is potentially closer to the practice of professional science. We work closely with our students to help them develop both knowledge and confidence in their proficiency, regardless of their background or outgoing career trajectory. We are especially interested in candidates whose teaching, research, and service will contribute to the department's commitment to undergraduate research, student learning, diversity, and inclusive pedagogy.
Bucknell University, an Equal Opportunity Employer, believes that students learn best in a diverse, inclusive community and is therefore committed to academic excellence through diversity in its faculty, staff, and students. Thus, we seek candidates who are committed to Bucknell's efforts to create a climate that fosters the growth and development of a diverse student body. We welcome applications from members of groups that have been historically under-represented in higher education.
