PHYSICS

ASSISTANT TEACHING PROFESSOR, PHYSICS

The University of Notre Dame is seeking a physics educator to oversee and teach physics laboratories for life science students and engineering students, coordinate classroom demonstrations, and participate in outreach programs. This is a full-time, 12-month non-tenure track faculty position. The starting rank will be Assistant Teaching Professor, though a higher rank may be appropriate given prior experience. This is a three-year position with the possibility for renewal. Starting salary will be between $55-70,000, depending on rank and experience.

The University of Notre Dame teaches calculus-based physics courses to approximately 550 life science/pre-health students and 800 engineering undergraduates each year. Both sequences are taught each fall and spring semester, as are their accompanying labs. Both courses, with their labs, are also taught during the summer session. The Laboratory Instructor will work with the current team to oversee the operation of lab sessions throughout the year. These duties include: working with the instructors of the lecture courses to ensure coordination of the lectures and the labs; maintaining and improving the lab manuals; overseeing, training and evaluating the graduate student teaching assistants assigned to teach each lab section; selecting and overseeing undergraduate teaching assistants; and giving presentations and supervising students during the lab meetings. It is also expected that the Laboratory Instructor will design new laboratories to be placed in the rotation of available experiments used in our Experiment Design pedagogy, using current research in physics pedagogy to guide their design and implementation. The Laboratory Instruction Team is also responsible for organizing the demonstrations used in the physics department classrooms and for developing new demonstrations.
