The Physics Department at Colorado College invites applications for a one-year visiting assistant professor position starting in August of 2018. We prefer a candidate with some teaching experience who can teach across the undergraduate curriculum. There may be an opportunity for the visitor to offer one course of their choice. This can be an elective course for majors, an interdisciplinary course, a general education course or a first-year experience course. In your cover letter, please described a course or two that you would enjoy teaching and that would add to our curriculum.
The Colorado College is a small, selective, undergraduate liberal arts college at the foot of Pike's Peak. Our unusual academic calendar, in which students take and faculty teach one course at a time, allows flexibility for innovative teaching. Our department of seven faculty has graduated about 15 physics majors per year recently, and in addition teaches a variety of service and general education courses.
To apply, submit cover letter, CV, summary of your experience in and philosophy of teaching, description of your research interests including projects suitable for undergraduate collaborators, and at least one letter of recommendation. You may also submit two additional letters of recommendation, and unofficial undergraduate and graduate transcripts, although these are not required for consideration. All documents should be submitted through the College system. We will begin considering applications on February 15, 2018.
