The Astrophysical and Planetary Sciences (APS) Department at the University of Colorado Boulder (CU Boulder) is conducting a search for an academic year, non-tenure-track instructor with a three-year renewable contract. We seek applications from candidates with a record of teaching excellence and a commitment to science education. Nominal teaching expectations are three courses per semester (six per academic year). Significant service contributions to the departmental educational mission (e.g. coordination of undergraduate mentor program) may be substituted for some classroom teaching. APS offers a wide range of classes in astronomy and planetary sciences, and opportunities exist for teaching at all levels, with an emphasis on introductory astronomy. Instructors are faculty in APS, contribute to departmental activities, and engage in modest departmental service (e.g., attend faculty meetings, contribute to a department committee). Instructors are permitted to supplement their salary through external grants or through teaching APS classes during the summer.
We welcome all candidates to apply but particularly candidates from groups that have been historically underrepresented in the astrophysical and planetary sciences and/or have demonstrated leadership toward building an equitable and inclusive scholarly environment.
The University of Colorado Boulder is committed to building a culturally diverse community of faculty, staff, and students dedicated to contributing to an inclusive campus environment. We are an Equal Opportunity employer, including veterans and individuals with disabilities.
The successful candidate will receive up to $3,000 for moving expenses.
The University of Colorado offers excellent benefits, including medical, dental, retirement, paid time off, tuition benefit and ECO Pass. The University of Colorado Boulder is one of the largest employers in Boulder County and offers an inspiring higher education environment. Learn more about the University of Colorado Boulder.
