Position Status: Full-time
The Physics Department at Colorado College invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor position starting in August, 2017. We prefer a candidate with some teaching experience who can teach across our physics curriculum. Further, we are dedicated to the development of faculty and staff who are committed to inclusive practices in teaching, learning, and working. Candidates who can contribute to that goal are particularly encouraged to apply.
The Colorado College is a selective, undergraduate liberal arts college of 2000 students at the foot of Pikes Peak. Our unusual academic calendar, in which students take and faculty teach one course at a time, allows flexibility for innovative teaching. Our department has graduated an average of about a dozen majors per year recently. We would like to encourage more women and minorities to take an interest in physics and astronomy; if you can help us do that, we will be especially happy to hear from you.
Please send cover letter, CV, copies of undergraduate and graduate unofficial transcripts, brief summary of your experience in and philosophy of teaching, description of your research interests including experimental or observational projects suitable for undergraduate collaborators, and three letters of recommendation.
