Position: The University of Wyoming College of Arts and Sciences invites applications for a non-tenure-track Lecturer position in the Department of Physics and Astronomy beginning August 2020. The appointment will initially be for one year but could be renewed for a second year.
Qualifications: A PhD in physics/astronomy or a closely related discipline is highly desirable. Candidates should possess good communication skills, have recent teaching experience, and be interested in teaching computational physics, or upper-level or graduate-level astronomy. Excellent teaching that engages students is the most desired quality. Ability to teach large, freshman-level courses will be considered an added strength.
Responsibilities: Teach 3/3 courses during Spring/Fall terms. Teach courses in physics/astronomy across the curriculum, particularly computational courses. Potentially supervise teaching assistants who are assigned for laboratory and discussion sections. Depending on the department’s needs, opportunities may arise for teaching graduate-level astronomy for those interested. Salary is competitive.
