Job Details

Position Summary: The Department of Physics at Gettysburg College invites applications for a tenure-track position as an Assistant Professor in Physics beginning August 2023. Our preference is for individuals who have engaged in research-supported pedagogy centered around student learning and who foster active learning environments. Responsibilities include teaching courses across the undergraduate physics curriculum (including upper-level research courses), conducting a dynamic experimental research program involving undergraduates, and actively participating in the governance of the department and college. The successful candidate will also have opportunities to teach in the broader college curriculum through interdisciplinary courses and our First-Year Seminar program.
 

 

Qualifications: Candidates must have a doctorate in physics (or closely allied field); all sub-fields will be considered. We strongly encourage applications from candidates who are committed to and can speak to mentoring and educating a broad range of students but particularly those who are traditionally underrepresented in physics and astronomy. Preference will be given to those candidates who can establish an on-campus experimental research presence with undergraduates. College-level teaching experience and postdoctoral research experience are preferred.

 

Application Details: Please visit our website to submit your electronic application:  https://gettysburg.peopleadmin.com/postings/4717  
 

 

Application materials should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a statement of current and future research plans (under the portfolio section of the on-line application), a statement of teaching philosophy and experience, and current email addresses for at least three professional references, at least one of which can speak to your teaching ability. Please limit the CV to 4 pages and each statement to 3 pages. The teaching statement must address experience and/or knowledge regarding issues of equity, diversity, and inclusion in the classroom. Professional references will be contacted by Gettysburg College to submit letters of recommendation electronically. Applications and letters of recommendation received by November 28, 2022 will be given fullest consideration, but submissions will continue to be accepted and reviewed until the position is filled. Inquiries can be addressed to Dr. Bret Crawford at [email protected]

Organization

Gettysburg College Gettysburg College has been witness and participant to some of the most significant events in the history of our nation. Chartered in 1832 to provide education for the residents of south-central Pennsylvania, the College was a neighbor to fighting between Union and Confederate troops in July 1863. On July 1, math professor Michael Jacobs cancelled classes after telling his students that their minds were no longer on their lessons. Pennsylvania Hall, the College's first building, served during and after the Civil War battle as a hospital for the wounded, treating more than 700 Union and Confederate soldiers. On November 19, 1863, Gettysburg College students walked from Pennsylvania Hall into the historic town to hear President Abraham Lincoln deliver his legendary Gettysburg Address.

Gettysburg CollegePresident Dwight D. Eisenhower was also closely associated with Gettysburg College. Following his presidency, he returned to Gettysburg to live and served the College as a member of its Board of Trustees. He wrote his memoirs in what is today the College's Admissions Office, now known as Eisenhower House.
