This position would support the planetary sciences track in the physics major, and the laboratory science offerings for non-majors. The instructor will be responsible for developing a formal laboratory course to complement an existing course offering for non-majors.
The standard teaching load would be 8 courses a year (4/4). This would require curriculum development, as well as shepherding the course through the governance process for approval, which would constitute a portion of the service component associated with this position.
Formally supporting the resulting laboratory courses will also fall under the service obligations for this position. Additionally, this instructor would advise students in the planetary science track and mentor students in their senior project work. The strongest candidates would be able to contribute to other courses offered out of the department, physics, astronomy, or other nonmajors STE courses.
Application should be made through the Suffolk HR website and should include the following elements: 1) letter of application; 2) CV; 3) copies of transcripts; 4) evidence of teaching effectiveness; 5) three professional letters of reference (which should be sent electronically to Doris Wong, Employment Services Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org )
Please submit application materials no later than May 1, 2017.
