The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Millikin University invites applications for adjunct faculty to teach two introductory lecture courses and one introductory lab course for the fall 2018 semester, beginning in August. The lecture courses are on 1) introductory astronomy (stars and galaxies) and 2) university physics (calculus-based mechanics), and the lab is on mechanics, with a mix of algebra-based and calculus-based lecture students. Candidates should have a Masters or Ph.D. in physics or a related field.
The total time commitment will be three hours per week for each of the lecture courses (2.5 hours of class time distributed over two classes per week on Tuesdays and Thursdays) and two hours for each weekly lab. Applicants may choose to teach one or more of these courses.
Interested candidates should submit a cover letter detailing your suitability for this position, curriculum vitae, two confidential letters of reference, and unofficial undergraduate and graduate transcripts. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. Employment and first day of work is contingent upon successful completion of a background check.
