Attention: Professor Morton Tavel, Chair
The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Vassar College invites
applications for two tenure-track positions in physics at the assistant
professor level beginning in September 1998. Applicants should have a Ph.D. in
physics or a closely related field; teaching experience is preferred. The
successful candidate should have expertise in an area that will help to
strengthen the connection between the Physics and Astronomy programs. Plasma
physics, astrophysics, solid state physics, optics and atomic physics, with a
significant experimental and/or computational emphasis, are areas that we feel
would provide such strength. The successful candidates will be expected to
teach all levels of undergraduate physics courses and to engage undergraduate
students in research programs.
The department consists of two astronomers and five physicists; their
research specialties are detailed on the department homepage http://noether.vassar.edu. Vassar College is a liberal arts school with an
enrollment of 2300 students. The 1000-acre campus is located in Poughkeepsie,
75 miles north of Manhattan along the Hudson River.
Candidates should send (1) a curriculum vitae, (2) a statement of
interest and experience in teaching, and (3) a statement of plans for research
which will engage undergraduates within the context of our department, and (4)
arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent to the department.
Deadline for applications is Dec. 15. Salaries will be competitive.
AAE/EOE; women and minorities are encouraged to apply.
