The Physics Program at Bard College invites applications for a two-year postdoctoral teaching fellowship.

The department is in the midst of rapid growth and seeks to apply equal intellectual rigor to pedagogy and research. The candidate will teach two courses a year, as well as conduct research in quantum gravity and mathematical physics with Prof. Haggard. Eligibility is limited to applicants who have or will have completed their Ph.D. in Physics, Astronomy or closely related field by the time of the appointment. The density of physics groups in the mid Hudson Valley makes this an ideal location to connect with the broader physics community.

Interested candidates should send a cover letter, CV, a list of publications, statement of research interests/plans, and a teaching statement that summarizes her/his teaching experience and philosophy for improving student engagement and learning. Our program serves undergraduates and thought should be given to ways of including undergraduates in the candidate’s research program. The application and three recommendation letters should be sent directly to Interfolio.

We encourage all candidates to apply by December 15, and applications will be considered until the position is filled. Bard College is an equal opportunity employer and we welcome applications from those who contribute to our diversity. For further information about the position, please contact Prof. Hal Haggard at haggard[AT]bard.edu.
