Kenyon College — Tenure Track Assistant Professor of Physics

Kenyon College invites applications for a tenure-track position as an assistant professor of physics beginning in July, 2017.

The Physics Department seeks a colleague who demonstrates the ability to teach with creativity and dedication at all levels of a rigorous undergraduate curriculum while developing an active program of research, preferably involving participation by undergraduates. Advancement in the position requires a Ph.D. in physics or a closely related field. Outstanding candidates who are ABD may be considered; however, post-doctoral experience is preferred. While the research area of the position is open, we are particularly interested in candidates who can contribute to the advanced experimental areas of our curriculum and our research community.

In their cover letter, applicants should explain why Kenyon Physics is a good fit for their professional aspirations, how their research program can be successfully accomplished in the context of a liberal arts college, and how they would contribute to the department’s goal of continuing to build a welcoming and culturally diverse educational environment.
