Successful candidates will have demonstrated commitments to teaching undergraduates and will be expected to develop a strong independent research program that includes all levels of undergraduate research activities.

Pomona College is committed to increasing excellence through diversity and welcomes applications from women and members of underrepresented groups. As an Equal Opportunity Employer, all applicants will be reviewed in an equitable manner.

Pomona is a highly selective private liberal arts college with an enrollment of approximately 1600 students, all undergraduates, and a student/faculty ratio of eight to one. Recognized as one of the nation's premier liberal arts colleges, Pomona offers instruction in all major fields of the fine arts, humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences, and is strongly committed to the value of a residential educational community. Pomona is the founding member of the Claremont colleges, a unique collection of five small undergraduate colleges and two graduate institutions. Students of The Claremont Colleges can cross-register for courses at any of the colleges and have access to a shared library system containing over 2 million volumes. Pomona students thus enjoy the advantages of personalized instruction and close faculty-student interaction in a small liberal arts college setting, combined with the intellectual and extracurricular resources typically found at much larger universities.
