Faculty at Bard High School Early College

Bard High School Early College, a partnership between Bard College and the New York City Department of Education, invites applications for a full-time faculty position in Physics, beginning February 2009. BHSEC, a national model in the field of public school reform, enables talented and highly motivated students to move in four years from the ninth grade through the first two years of college, earning an Associate of Arts degree from Bard College as well as a high school diploma. The academic program emphasizes small class size and a commitment to teaching a diverse student body. The successful candidate would teach a college-level physics course (calculus based), a 9th grade conceptual physics course, advanced electives as needed as well as high school or college general chemistry courses. Ph.D. and college teaching experience strongly preferred; high school teaching experience also desirable.

Interested applicants should send a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, statement of teaching philosophy or teaching portfolio, and letters of reference by December 22 to:

Michael Lerner
Dean of Studies
Bard High School Early College
525 E. Houston Street
New York, NY 10002
