VAP at Skidmore College  

The Departments of Physics and Mathematics at Skidmore College invite applications for a one-year, full-time faculty position to begin fall 2016. The College seeks to attract an academically and culturally diverse faculty, welcoming applicants from historically under-represented groups and/or who have experience teaching diverse student populations. A Ph.D. in Physics is required, and prior teaching experience is desirable. The successful candidate will teach undergraduate physics courses as well as introductory calculus. 

Skidmore is a highly selective liberal arts college that fosters creative approaches to teaching and learning. With its relatively small size and student-faculty ratio, the College is a close-knit academic community. Skidmore's faculty of teacher-scholars are devoted to the instruction and mentoring of approximately 2,400 talented undergraduate men and women from some 47 states and 46 countries. 

Review of materials will begin February 1, with applications accepted until the position is filled.
