The Rowan University Department of Physics and Astronomy invites applications for a one-year visiting assistant professor position beginning Fall 2010, with possible renewal for a second year. The position is contingent upon budget appropriations. We seek candidates who are interested in teaching physics at both the beginning and advanced levels. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to participate in the current research programs within our department. A Ph.D. degree in Physics is preferred, but ABD may be considered. Teaching experience is a plus.
The department consists of 10 faculty members, a laboratory coordinator, an instrument coordinator, and a secretary. We have eight active research facilities that foster student/faculty collaborative research including labs for magnetics, physical properties, thin film fabrication, microscopy, ultrafast spectroscopy, laser cooling, computational physics, planetary science, and astrophysics. Our department also houses an observatory, a planetarium, and a well-equipped machine shop. Additional information may be obtained from our web site at http://www.rowan.edu/physics/.
Applicants should submit a curriculum vita, unofficial undergraduate and graduate transcripts, a one-page description of teaching philosophy, a one-page statement of research interests and three reference letters by June 15 to: firstname.lastname@example.org. EOE. Background check required.
