Preference will be given to candidates with previous teaching experience at the collegiate level, and evidence of exceptional teaching performance. Enthusiasm for working closely with undergraduates, including freshmen, is essential to this position.
RESPONSIBILITIES: This is a full-time teaching position that normally requires teaching 4 courses per semester. The successful candidate will serve as an advisor to undergraduate majors and minors, and may serve as a supervisor for undergraduate research projects.
