Required documents include: a cover letter; CV; a one-page statement of teaching philosophy and interests; and course evaluations for all recently taught courses. In addition, we ask for a one-page statement of commitment to encouraging diversity, inclusion, and belonging, including past and current contributions in these areas. Candidates are also required to submit the names and contact information for three references. Applicants can apply using this link: https://academicpositions.harvard.edu/postings/8557. We encourage candidates to apply by December 15, 2018, but will continue to review applications until the position is filled.
