Faculty 4-Year College/University
Internal Number: 124360
The University of Notre Dame Department of Physics and Astronomy is seeking a physics educator to serve as the Associate Director of Undergraduate Studies (ADUS), and to coordinate and teach part of the engineering physics course sequence.
The Department of Physics and Astronomy graduates roughly 30 undergraduate majors each year and teaches calculus-based physics courses to approximately 550 life science/pre-health students and 800 engineering undergraduates.
Working closely with the faculty Director of Undergraduate Studies, the duties of the ADUS will include advising physics majors and tracking student progress, registration for all undergraduate courses taught by the department and handling of associated administrative matters, serving on departmental committees based and experience and expertise, and assistance with departmental and university events and academic fairs involving current and prospective undergraduate physics majors.
For the two-semester engineering physics sequence, responsibilities will include teaching one section each semester, supervising Teaching Assistants for both Engineering Physics I and II weekly tutorial sessions, and to serve as an advising resource for other faculty assigned to the engineering physics sequence to facilitate continuity of the format and pedagogical approach.
This is a full-time, 12-month non-tenure track faculty position. The anticipated starting rank will be Associate Teaching Professor, though a higher rank may be negotiated based on prior experience. The anticipated start date is August 2023.
The Department is committed to diversifying its faculty and encourages applications from women and members of traditionally underrepresented groups.
A successful applicant is expected to have a Ph.D. in Physics, Physics Education, or a related field. Teaching experience is required. Experience in academic advising and administration or interest in Physics Education Research (PER) is desirable but not required.
A completed application will consist of a cover letter, a detailed CV listing prior teaching experience, a teaching statement, and three letters of recommendation. Review of complete applications will begin on May 15, 2023, and continue until the position has been filled. Any application completed prior to May 31 will receive a full evaluation.
For further information please contact Prof. Morten Eskildsen (firstname.lastname@example.org).
