Position: The University of Wyoming College of Arts and Sciences invites applications for a non-tenure-track Lecturer position in the Department of Physics and Astronomy beginning August 2020. The appointment will initially be for one year but could be renewed for a second year.
Qualifications: A PhD in physics/astronomy or a closely related discipline is highly desirable. Candidates should possess good communication skills, have recent teaching experience, and be interested in teaching computational physics, or upper-level or graduate-level astronomy. Excellent teaching that engages students is the most desired quality.
Ability to teach large, freshman-level courses will be considered an added strength.
Responsibilities: Teach 3/3 courses during Spring/Fall terms. Teach courses in physics/astronomy across the curriculum, particularly computational courses. Potentially supervise teaching assistants who are assigned for laboratory and discussion sections. Depending on the department’s needs, opportunities may arise for teaching graduate-level astronomy for those interested. Salary is competitive.
Diversity Statement: The University of Wyoming strongly values the benefits that diversity brings to the workplace. The University of Wyoming does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, color, national or ethnic origin, age, religion, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, genetic information, military status, or any other legally protected classification.

About University of Wyoming
Laramie has a population of 31,000, plus some 14,000 UW students. Nestled in the Rockies, the elevation is 7200 feet. Driving time to Fort Collins, CO is a little over an hour, and a little over two to Denver. The opportunities for outdoor recreation are outstanding, including hiking, camping, hunting, fishing, mountain biking, snowshoeing, skiing (both downhill and cross-country), and climbing. UW is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Educator and Employer. We are committed to a multicultural environment and strongly encourage applications from women, minorities, veterans, and persons with disabilities. Our physics faculty and students carry out interdisciplinary, collaborative, and hands-on research in multiple cutting-edge laboratories. Our astronomy faculty and students have exceptional access to observing opportunities at Apache Point Observatory, the Wyoming Infrared Observatory, and Red Buttes Observatory. Our researchers also use the NCAR Wyoming supercomputer and the Mount Moran cluster for their theoretical computational work. We offer three undergraduate and three graduate degree programs: Physics BS, Physics BA, Astronomy BS, Physics MS, Physics Teaching MS, and Physics Ph.D.
