Sarah Lawrence College, a coeducational liberal arts college dedicated to individualized education, is recruiting a broadly trained physicist for a full-time guest position beginning August 2017. The position is for one academic year and will include teaching our algebra-based introductory physics seminar sequence with laboratory, as well as two other seminar courses (preferably a statistical mechanics course as well as an introductory-level course of your choice).
  • The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. in Physics (or be expected to complete the requirements for their degree by August 2017) and exhibit an interest and ability in working closely with students on an individual basis.
Application materials should include: cover letter, CV, statement of teaching philosophy, copy of graduate transcript, brief descriptions of an introductory course and an intermediate course suitable for liberal arts students, and two letters of recommendation (at least one of which must address the candidate's teaching ability).
