Lecturer - Physics

The Department of Chemistry, Biochemistry and Physics in the College of Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics at Eastern Washington University invites applications to fill a non-tenure-track Physics Lecturer position to begin mid-September 2017 (or on another date as negotiated). The Department offers BA and BS degrees in Physics as well as a BAE degree for physics teachers.

Responsibilities will focus on teaching physical science, introductory physics and/or general physics. This position is a full time Lecturer position, with a 45-credit workload distributed over a 3-quarter academic year, and has an emphasis on classroom instruction (some courses involve related laboratory courses). Consideration will also be given to candidates interested in part time teaching opportunities (rank would be as a quarterly faculty).

We seek candidates with a passion and the desire to teach lower division physics courses as a long term endeavor, and thereby contribute to the quality of our program and the success of our students. Other teaching assignments will depend on departmental needs and applicant expertise. Lecturer positions do not include research as part of their workload.

Review of applications for the classroom instruction position will begin immediately. Position will remain open until further notice. All materials will be held in strictest confidence. Additional information about the department can be found at www.ewu.edu/CSHE/Programs/Physics
