Job Description

Sarah Lawrence College seeks to hire a tenure-track faculty member to join its Natural Science and Mathematics faculty with a required start in the fall of 2024. We seek candidates with evidence of successful teaching in undergraduate physics, mathematics, and/or environmental science courses and interest in teaching and engaging undergraduate students in interdisciplinary research that spans two of the three disciplines. Sarah Lawrence is a small liberal arts college located near New York City with an open curriculum and unique pedagogy based on small classes and individualized student projects; interdisciplinary work is a developing feature of the curriculum. We are interested in candidates who have expertise in environmental physics, earth and space science, numerical modeling, energy systems, statistics, or other applied physics or mathematics disciplines. The ability to contribute to either the core physics or mathematics curriculum would be highly desirable. Preference will be given to candidates with interests in either applied computational research or experimental research collaborations conducted at external laboratory facilities.

The application should include the following: cover letter, CV, copy of the graduate transcript, statement of teaching philosophy and scholarly interests that incorporates how diversity, equity, and inclusion inform your work, descriptions of two courses that could be offered at Sarah Lawrence - one course should be interdisciplinary, a sample of scholarly writing, and three letters of recommendation - at least one of which should speak directly to your teaching abilities.

Review of applications will begin on November 15, 2023 and continue until the position is filled.
Compensation listed for this position is for a full-time tenure-track faculty position and will be contingent on teaching experience.
