Job Announcement Text: 

The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Carleton College is seeking applications for 2 or 3 one-year appointments at the Assistant Professor level for the 2022-2023 academic year. We seek individuals who have recently completed their PhD (or are nearing the completion of their PhD) in physics, astronomy, or related fields with a strong commitment to teach in a liberal-arts environment. Each position will involve teaching 5-6 courses over three 10-week terms, including a combination of courses across our curriculum. There may be opportunities for involvement of undergraduate students in research, but it is not required for these positions. Though applicants of any specialty are welcome, we are looking to hire at least one experimentalist to cover intermediate and advanced lab courses. Additionally, the department anticipates filling a tenure-track astrophysicist position in the next few years and encourages visiting applicants that may be interested in that position as well.

For further information on the department, visit our web site at http://apps.carleton.edu/curricular/physics/.

To apply, complete the online application at https://careers.carleton.edu/en-us/job/492740/visiting-assistant-profess.... Review of applications will begin on February 11th, 2022, but applications are welcome until the positions are filled. The online application should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and a statement of teaching experience and how it has influenced your teaching philosophy. Your teaching statement should address how you will contribute to a college community that holds as one of its core values a commitment to welcoming and treating all people with dignity and respect. In addition, you will be asked to submit contact information for three individuals to serve as references.
