The Department of Physics at the University of North Texas is seeking a Lecturer to serve in a continuing, full time position and to start in the January 2022 academic semester. The department serves students from across the University’s population, including physics majors. The Lecturer position is an important pedagogically oriented element of the department’s delivery of courses for freshman and sophomores from STEM and non-science areas.
The Lecturer will be required to teach introductory Astronomy and physics courses and may be assigned to teach core undergraduate courses in physics depending on the departmental needs. The candidates are expected to teach 3-4 courses per semester with the potential for a course load reduction for other assignments such as assisting in recruiting, professional activities, undergraduate advising, course development, lab management, and service activities. The candidates are also expected to coordinate the lecturing and lab teaching with other instructors to ensure consistency in teaching. The department is looking for strong student focused candidates with interactive and engaged teaching methodology. Salary is competitive and commensurate with experience.
