The Department of Physics at Bradley University invites applications for a full-time, one-year temporary Visiting Assistant Professor position to begin August 16, 2021, with the possibility of renewal beyond the one-year term.  Candidates must have an MS or PhD (preferred) in Physics or a related discipline and must demonstrate genuine interest in undergraduate education. The department encourages applications from candidates who could engage students in laboratory and who also have an interest in interactive teaching methods. The successful candidate will be assigned calculus-based introductory physics courses with their respective labs and physical science courses for non-science majors.  We seek a conscientious teacher and a practicing physicist who will thrive in a four-year, liberal arts institution where close contact and collaboration with students are the norm.


Candidates must submit (1) a letter of application, (2) a Curriculum Vitae, and (3) a statement of teaching philosophy and experience. In addition, candidates should arrange for three letters of recommendation. Information regarding how the candidate has or can contribute to diversity in teaching, research, or service should be provided within the teaching statement or in a stand-alone diversity statement.  For inquiries, email Dr. Jose Lozano, Chair, Department of Physics at physicssearch@bradley.edu . To ensure full consideration, application materials should be received by April 23, 2021.  Receipt and review of applications will continue until the position is filled.
