Long-term Adjunct at CSU-Chico

Temporary Faculty Positions in Physics

[Ed. Note: Leslie Atkins is at Chico and encourages PERjobs readers to email her with questions.  The department intends that these "temporary" positions will last for a very long time.]

The Department of Physics invites applications for two nearly full-time positions to begin
August 2013. We expect that our need for temporary faculty to fill these positions will not
diminish in coming years. Duties will focus on providing excellent instruction in both lecture
and laboratory components of our one-year algebra based introductory physics courses (14/
15 full-time teaching load). The minimum requirement is a Master’s degree in Physics or
Physics Education (Preference will be given to candidates showing a record of innovation
in physics instruction). The successful candidate(s) will also be expected to work with other
faculty in the department to improve instructional effectiveness by applying the insights of
Physics Education Research. Find more info about us here: .
