The Department of Physics of Harvey Mudd College, one of the Claremont Colleges, is seeking a visiting assistant professor of physics, beginning September 2018. This is a full-time, non-tenure-track appointment with a strong possibility of renewal for a second year. The department has thirteen full-time members; we graduate about 20 physics majors each year, the majority of whom go on to Ph.D. programs in physics and related fields. https://physics.hmc.edu/ The successful candidate will hold a Ph.D. in physics or a closely related field, and will have a primary responsibility of teaching. Teaching assignments are exclusively at the undergraduate level and will include introductory physics in small classroom and laboratory settings. Advanced undergraduate courses may be included in the visitor’s schedule subject to interest on the part of the visitor and need in the department. Though research activities will not be within the primary responsibilities, candidates who envision conducting research through collaborations and/or work with students are encouraged to mention those plans when applying and discuss them with the department chair. Questions about the position should be directed to Professor Theresa W. Lynn, Chair, Department of Physics, email@example.com. The physics department and the college place a high value on engaging students from a broad range of backgrounds, and candidates with a demonstrated commitment to reaching a diverse student body and broadening participation in physics are especially encouraged to apply. To apply, please submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and the names/email addresses of three references through Academic Jobs Online at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/10934. At least one reference, and preferably two, should be able to comment on teaching experience or potential. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
