Applications will be reviewed starting immediately and will continue to be considered until the position is filled.  A complete application must include a letter of application, curriculum vitae, documentation of teaching experience and evaluations, (unofficial) graduate school transcripts, and three letters of reference sent under separate cover.  Email submissions with PDF attachments to Professor Rob Lemke at lemke@lakeforest.edu.
