We especially welcome candidates whose professional experience, and community engagement have facilitated their understanding of and ability to better serve students from traditionally underrepresented communities in higher education. Faculty are expected to have an inclusive approach to mentoring and advising that incorporates working with women and underrepresented undergraduate and graduate students.
The anticipated start date for this position is July 1, 2024. Duties include active research, graduate supervision, classroom teaching at all levels, and department and university service.
