TT at Rollins College

The Department of Physics invites applications from an experimental physicist for a tenure-track position beginning August 2010.

The Department of Physics has a strong commitment to research involving undergraduate students and the successful candidate is expected to include undergraduate students in their research. The successful candidate will also demonstrate a commitment to creative teaching of both introductory and advanced undergraduate physics courses, as well as courses for non-science majors. A Ph.D. is required, some prior teaching experience at the undergraduate level is preferred, and evidence of an active research program capable of involving undergraduate students at an early stage in their academic career is mandatory. A commitment to the liberal arts and excellent communication skills are essential.

Applicants must apply online at and should upload a current resume, cover letter describing their interest in the position, a statement of teaching philosophy, and a summary of research plans involving undergraduate students. Materials can be addressed to the attention of Thomas R. Moore, Chair, Department of Physics. Through its mission, Rollins College is committed to creating a fully inclusive, just community that embraces multiculturalism; persons of color and other historically under-represented groups are therefore encouraged to apply. The College’s equal opportunity policy is inclusive of sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, and Rollins offers domestic partner benefits.
