Detailed Job Description

The Department of Physics and Astronomy of Dickinson College invites applications for a one-year sabbatical replacement position beginning July 2013. Dickinson is a highly selective four-year liberal arts college with an active and innovative science program. The Department is housed in a state-of-the-art building, equipped with smart classrooms, research labs, a planetarium, and observatory.

The physics major features a project-centered, hands-on curriculum beginning with the internationally-known Workshop Physics, an activity-based introductory course developed here at Dickinson. The Department graduates approximately ten majors per year, one-third of whom are women. The ability to create inclusive learning environments for an increasingly diverse student body will be an important characteristic of the successful candidate. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in physics and will be expected to teach primarily introductory physics courses, with the possibility of also teaching an upper-level physics course. Ideally, applicants will be able to engage undergraduate majors in research.
