Guest Faculty, Sarah Lawrence College NY


We are looking for 1 or 2 guest faculty for two courses this coming spring semester (job listing here). The courses will be taught remotely, so applicants need not be in the NY area, though access to the campus lab equipment and office space is available for those that desire it. This would be a great opportunity for any ABD graduate student or post doc who wants to try out teaching their own course (and the rate is much better than the standard adjunct rate!) Please share this opportunity widely to those who may be interested! ​The deadline for first consideration of applications is November 15th, but the job will remain open until filled. I would be happy to answer any questions from potential applicants!


More info below about the types of courses we would like taught:

We would like one course be a 5-credit lecture (up to 45 students) that is open to the entire student population (so no pre-requisites) and could be on any topic of the instructor's choice. (Something interdisciplinary like 'Physics of Dance' or 'Physics of Music' would go over very well, and history of science courses would also be very popular and add some welcome breadth to our course offerings.)


The other course would be a 3-credit small seminar course (probably fewer than 5 students) for more advanced science/math students wishing to go into graduate school in physics, applied math, or other physical sciences. This would preferably be something like a junior-level 'Classical Mechanics' or 'Statistical Mechanics' course.
