Applicants should demonstrate a strong interest in teaching. Technical
skills (machine shop, electronics, computer programming, engineering
design, optics, etc.) are a plus. Minimum requirement is a Bachelor's
degree in physics or a related field, but those with MS and PhD degrees are
strongly encouraged to apply.
This is a 100% teaching support position (no research experience required
or expected), though there may be opportunities for the candidate to become
involved in education research if that is an interest. The candidate would
be joining an established team of three people (two colleagues dedicated
specifically to labs and one specifically to lecture demonstrations), and
entering a well-supported, creative environment.
We are accepting applications now and interviewing on a rolling basis.
Please do not hesitate to ask questions about the position or to forward
this on to others who may be interested.
