Hi folks,

I wanted to draw your attention to a tenure track position in Physics Education or closely related field open at The College of New Jersey, which has a cluster of Earth Science faculty within the Physics Department and a degree specialization in Geophysics.

This search is focused on someone trained in, or with substantial experience in, physics education research. This faculty member will be strongly involved with our strong dual major in Physics and Secondary Education, as well as with implementing modern pedagogical techniques in courses at different levels.

Teaching and research are mutually supportive activities at TCNJ. Candidates should be strongly committed to the teacher-scholar model, to maintaining both high-quality teaching and an active and productive research program involving highly motivated undergraduates, and to seeking external funding consistent with this mission. Our expectation is that a substantial portion of the new faculty members' research will be performed on campus and will involve undergraduates. Faculty members also serve as academic advisors and have service responsibilities within the College. A research laboratory and start-up funds will be provided for both positions. The Physics Department, which currently has eight full-time, tenure-line faculty members and approximately 100 majors, is housed in a modern science complex that offers state-of-the-art teaching and research facilities and instrumentation. For more information about the department, visit: http://physics.pages.tcnj.edu.

Founded in 1855, TCNJ is a highly selective institution that has earned national recognition for its commitment to excellence. Emphasizing a residential experience for its approximately 6,500 undergraduates, TCNJ is one of Barronas 75 "Most Competitive" American colleges, and U.S. News & World Report's No. 1 public institution of its kind in the northern region of the country. The College also offers focused graduate programs in Nursing, Education, and English. TCNJ was awarded, in 2006, a Phi Beta Kappa chapter-an honor shared by less than 10 percent of colleges and universities nationally. A strong liberal arts core forms the foundation for programs offered through TCNJ's seven schools-Arts and Communication; Business; Education; Engineering; Humanities and Social Sciences; Nursing, Health, and Exercise Science; and Science. TCNJ faculty members are teacher-scholars who share a commitment to liberal learning. TCNJ is located about an hour, by train, of New York City and Philadelphia. The College's campus is set on 289 tree-lined acres in suburban Ewing Township and is known for its natural beauty. TCNJ has 39 major buildings, including the 4th-best college library in the nation, according to the Princeton Review. For more information, visit www.tcnj.edu

TCNJ is also proud to be the recipient of a National Science Foundation ADVANCE grant, working to support the careers of women faculty members in STEM disciplines by developing systemic approaches to increase the representation and advancement of women.
