University of Michigan at Dearborn Physics Lecturer III Position

The Department of Natural Sciences at the University of Michigan-Dearborn invites applications for a full-time LEO Lecturer-III position in Physics, to begin September 1st 2021. This appointment will be a limited-term appointment for one three-year term with renewal contingent on satisfactory performance and continued department need. The incumbent will instruct courses drawn from the full range of undergraduate Physics offerings, including (but not limited to) the introductory (algebra and calculus-based) lecture and lab sequences, and advanced-level laboratory and instrumentation courses. The incumbent will be expected to develop new lower and upper-level laboratory projects. Teaching responsibilities consist of the equivalent of seven courses per year. Summer teaching may be available for additional compensation. Some department service is expected.

The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate proficiency and previous experience in undergraduate instruction with full course responsibility, in Physics or a closely related field (with experience at both the freshman/sophomore and junior/senior level preferred), and will be able to demonstrate expertise linking Physics pedagogy to relevant research experience. Familiarity with Physics Education Research would be a plus. A Master’s degree in Physics or closely related field is required, with a PhD and/or extensive relevant industry or postdoctoral research experience strongly preferred. Candidates should submit a resume, a statement of teaching philosophy and experience, and a cover letter. A completed application packet will additionally include the names, phone numbers, and email addresses for three references. 

At this time, the department is unable to provide sponsorship for international applicants. Applications received by August 01 will receive full consideration. The position will remain open until filled.
