The successful candidate should be capable of teaching a college-level physics course as well as a high school course in conceptual physics. A degree in physics, astronomy, applied physics, or a related engineering field is required. High school teaching experience is strongly desirable. New York State teaching certification is a plus; assistance in securing certification will be provided to the successful candidate if necessary. We seek teachers and scholars deeply committed to their field and creative in engaging students at both the college and high school levels with its delights and challenges.
About Bard High School Early College
Bard High School Early College - Manhattan, is a partnership between Bard College and the New York City Department of Education. BHSEC, a national model in the field of public school reform, enables talented and highly motivated students to move in four years from the ninth grade through the first two years of college, earning an Associate of Arts degree from Bard College as well as a high school diploma. The academic program emphasizes small class size and a commitment to teaching a diverse student body. BHSEC Manhattan implements a “Physics First” curriculum, offering a conceptual Physics course in ninth grade, Chemistry in tenth grade, and then General Biology in the first year of the college program. Nearly all students elect to take at least one semester of science in the second year of the college program.
