We’re looking for a 2-term visitor

Posted by Arjendu on December 11, 2014

Please let students/post-docs know:

The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Carleton College is seeking applications
for a temporary, two-term position at the Assistant Professor level for the 2015-2016
academic year. We seek a recent PhD in physics or astronomy with a strong commitment
to teach in a liberal-arts environment. The position will involve teaching 4 courses over
two terms (either September 1, 2015 through mid-March 2016 or January 1, 2016
through mid-June 2016). The ideal candidate will be comfortable teaching astronomy as
well as physics. There may be opportunities for involvement of undergraduate students in
research, but it is not required for this position. Carleton College is a highly selective
liberal arts college with about 2000 undergraduates located 45 miles south of
Minneapolis/St. Paul and is on a three term per year schedule. Our eight-member
department strives to provide a challenging yet supportive environment for our
enthusiastic and intellectually demanding students. For further information on the
department, visit our web site at
To apply, complete the online application by February 15, 2015 at . The online application should include a cover letter,
curriculum vitae, and a statement of teaching experience and how it has influenced your
teaching philosophy. In addition, you will be asked to submit contact information for
three individuals who can serve as references.
Carleton College does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, ethnicity,
religion, sex, national origin, marital status, veteran status, actual or perceived sexual
orientation, gender identity and expression, status with regard to public assistance,

activities. We are committed to developing our faculty to better reflect the diversity of
our student body and American society. Women and members of minority groups are
strongly encouraged to apply
