Pitt-Bradford is a beautiful, friendly campus with an emphasis on teaching. While faculty have the advantage of the expansive resources and research opportunities available through the University of Pittsburgh system, they also enjoy one-on-one contact with their students in a secure, personalized environment. Women and applicants from traditionally underrepresented populations are strongly encouraged to apply. Individuals with experience in a setting committed to multiculturalism and/or campus diversity are of particular interest. www.upb.pitt.edu/faculty-search-information
