The Physics Department at Colorado College invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor position starting in August 2021. We seek candidates with broad teaching interests who can teach across the undergraduate physics curriculum, including introductory as well as advanced physics courses, to a diverse community of students. While all areas of physics and astrophysics will be considered, we prefer candidates with a demonstrated history of or specific ideas for providing undergraduate research opportunities.
Colorado College is a nationally recognized undergraduate liberal arts college of approximately 2,000 students. Located one hour south of Denver at the foot of Pikes Peak, the city of Colorado Springs offers many cultural and recreational activities in the foothills of the Rocky Mountain Region.
The College actively promotes a dynamic and inclusive environment in which students and employees of diverse backgrounds, cultures, and perspectives can learn and work. Antiracism is central to the College’s goals for the future, as evidenced by our multi-year external and self-study leading to our Antiracism Implementation Plan. We are particularly interested in faculty who have a dynamic vision for building an antiracist physics classroom.
We follow the Block Plan, an unusual academic calendar in which students take and faculty teach one course at a time, which allows flexibility for innovative teaching. Please include ideas you may have for teaching on the Block Plan in your cover letter, as well as ideas for new courses that are well suited to a liberal arts environment.
