We are especially interested in candidates with demonstrated ability in leading groups of students on capstone research projects and to administrate departmental programs.

Responsibilities include teaching-track faculty teaching load of five courses, supporting administration of the undergraduate and graduate programs through advising undergraduates and graduates, and participating in the life of the college through committees and other forms for academic service.
