Applicants should have a Master’s degree but preference will be given to those with a Ph.D., a strong commitment to undergraduate education, and an interest in working with diverse populations of students. The department has a strong commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Thus, we encourage applications from members of historically underrepresented groups in higher education. Applicants should submit a single complete PDF document consisting of a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a statement of teaching philosophy that includes evidence of a commitment to inclusive learning and unofficial transcripts to Dr. Sean Berthrong (firstname.lastname@example.org). Three letters of recommendation will be requested from shortlist candidates. Evaluation of applications will begin March 24th, 2023, and continue until the position is filled.
