The candidate will be expected to maintain an active research agenda, and to engage in academic service.
Applicants should submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, a teaching dossier including evidence of teaching effectiveness, official graduate school transcripts, and a research dossier to the address provided below. (Candidates should also provide contact information for three referees):
