The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Carleton College is seeking applications for two temporary, year-long positions at the Assistant Professor level for the 2020-2021 academic year. We seek individuals who have recently completed their PhD (or are nearing the completion of their PhD) in physics, astronomy, or related fields with a strong commitment to teach in a liberal-arts environment. One position each will involve teaching 4 courses over three 10-week terms, including introductory physics (mechanics and environmental physics) and upper-level courses in quantum mechanics and electricity and magnetism. The second position will involve teaching 5 courses over three 10-week terms, including introductory physics, introductory astronomy, and observational astronomy lab. There may be opportunities for involvement of undergraduate students in research, but it is not required for these positions.
Carleton College is a highly selective liberal arts college with about 2000 undergraduates in the college town of Northfield, MN ~45 miles away from the urban amenities of the Twin Cities. Our department of 8 faculty strives to provide a challenging and supportive environment for our enthusiastic and intellectually demanding students. We seek someone who will strengthen our commitment to teaching a diverse student body, and to producing majors who succeed in a variety of careers. We are open to applications from those who may not have taken a traditional path through physics programs. For further information on the department, visit our web site at http://apps.carleton.edu/curricular/physics/.
To apply, complete the online application at https://jobs.carleton.edu/. Review of applications will begin on Monday, March 23, 2020, but applications are welcome until the position is filled. The online application should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and a statement of teaching experience and how it has influenced your teaching philosophy. Your teaching statement should address how you will contribute to a college community that holds as one of its core values a commitment to welcoming and treating all people with dignity and respect. In addition, you will be asked to submit contact information for three individuals who can serve as references.
Carleton is committed to developing its faculty to better reflect the diversity of our student body and American society. Members of groups traditionally underrepresented in physics are strongly encouraged to apply.
