The Department of Physics and Astronomy of Dickinson College invites applications for a one-year visiting position beginning July 2021.
Dickinson College is a highly selective four-year, independent liberal arts college with 2300 students. It is located 20 minutes west of Harrisburg and is a two-hour drive from Baltimore, Washington DC and Philadelphia. The Department is housed in a state-of-the-art building equipped with smart classrooms, research labs, a machine shop, a planetarium, and an observatory.
The physics major features a project-centered, hands-on curriculum, and the Department graduates an average of ten majors per year. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in physics (or a related field) and will be expected to teach primarily introductory physics and/or astronomy courses, with the possibility of also teaching an upper-level physics course.
The ability to create inclusive learning environments for an increasingly diverse student body will be an important characteristic of the successful candidate. Ideally, applicants will be able to engage undergraduate majors in research.
Interested candidates should apply for this position electronically via https://jobs.dickinson.edu.
Candidates should submit via QUEST (online application system) at https://jobs.dickinson.edu; please include a letter of application, a curriculum vitae, a graduate transcript, three letters of recommendation, and a statement of your teaching and research interests.
