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.

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.
