We also contribute to an interdisciplinary concentration in scientific computing. The typical teaching load is five courses per year. Kenyon offers competitive salaries and a generous benefits package for employees and their family members. All Kenyon faculty have funds available to support travel and faculty development. In addition, startup funds will be available, depending on the research needs of the individual.
