The Columbia University Department of Physics invites applications for a faculty position at the rank of Lecturer in Discipline, to begin January 2023. The appointment requires teaching physics at the introductory and advanced levels. The appointment also involves responsibility for various aspects of the undergraduate program (working with current Senior Lecturer), as well as pedagogical training, mentoring and supervision of teaching assistants. There will also be opportunities to contribute to the culture and evolution of the undergraduate program in physics. Candidates should have a Physics PhD at the time of appointment, and some teaching experience. This is a full-time, non-tenure track, renewable position, with multi-year reappointments contingent upon successful performance reviews.
PhD in Physics required at time of appointment.
Required Experience: Demonstrated excellence in teaching, interest and ability related to undergraduate physics program. Preferred Experience: Experience with ‘active’ learning; training and oversight of teaching assistants (graduate and undergraduate); research experience.
All applications must be made through Columbia University’s Academic Search and Recruiting (ASR) system.
