Westmont College
Job Location:
Santa Barbara, California

The Department of Physics and Engineering at Westmont College invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant or Associate rank in Physics and Astronomy to begin in August 2022. Candidates must have a PhD in physics, astronomy, or astrophysics (postdoctoral experience preferred), a commitment to excellence in teaching a broad range of undergraduate physics and astronomy courses, and a passion to mentor undergraduate research.

Teaching responsibilities will include both lower- and upper-division courses in physics and astronomy as well as general education courses with an emphasis on astronomical phenomena. Although a variety of research specializations will be considered, preference will be given to candidates who demonstrate a willingness and proficiency to incorporate our modern campus observatory (housing a computer-controlled 24-inch reflector telescope with Ritchey-Chre?tien optics and a dedicated research laboratory beneath) in the department curriculum, student research, and public outreach.

Westmont College is a national liberal arts college in the evangelical Protestant tradition, seeking faculty with a vital and informed commitment to the Christian faith. We continually aim to diversify the faculty and strongly encourage applications from historically underrepresented groups within the physical sciences for this position.
