A successful candidate must have a strong interest in teaching a wide range of undergraduate science and engineering-related courses in a liberal arts setting, in mentoring a variety of experiential learning opportunities, and in supporting efforts towards ABET accreditation. Evidence of potential for highly effective classroom teaching is required. The normal teaching load is six courses per year, with an additional course in our May term every third year. The salary is commensurate with qualifications and experience, and the potential for being hired at the Associate Professor level dependent on previous academic experience.

Start-up funds, dedicated space, and ongoing support for research are available. Applicants should detail how their research would involve and engage undergraduates.
