The Department of Natural Sciences offers an interdisciplinary undergraduate major in Natural Science with the opportunity for majors to complete one of several concentrations in the life or physical sciences. The Department also participates in several interdisciplinary programs including the Integrative Neurosciences major, the Environmental Sciences major, and the pre-health program. Recent graduates of the Natural Science and Integrative Neuroscience majors have pursued careers in health professions such as medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, pharmacy, and optometry as well as disciplinary graduate programs e.g. in chemistry, neuroscience, and forensic science. Our mission is to provide undergraduates with the best possible education in lecture and laboratory classes and in faculty-mentored research. Our location in Manhattan provides many opportunities for collaborative research.
Information about the Bepler Chair in Physics can be found here.
We are reviewing applications for positions at all ranks. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in Physics or an associated field with postdoctoral experience and a strong research record in a field where undergraduate research students can play an important role. Candidates must be excellent teachers and must evince a strong commitment to mentoring undergraduate researchers. Teaching responsibilities will be limited to a 2-1 load so that the Bepler Chair will be able to put more effort into research and research mentorship. The courses taught by the Bepler Chair could include General Physics lecture and lab, physical sciences core courses, and one or more upper-level physics electives. We will consider candidates applying for the rank of Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor. We will consider candidates in all areas of physics, including astronomy, earth, and planetary sciences, climate science, and relevant fields of engineering.
Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, a brief plan of research, and a teaching statement. The candidate should also arrange to have three letters of recommendation submitted to https://apply.interfolio.com/68461 by December 10, 2019.
