College-level teaching experience and expertise in one of the listed areas of research and teaching is expected.
Responsibilities: Successful candidates will teach 9 credits/semester, pursue an active research agenda, and contribute to the department, college, university, and profession through service. Successful candidates will be expected to work effectively with a diversity of students that represent a range of backgrounds and social identities, including those with varying levels of academic preparation, and to demonstrate a commitment to innovative, engaging, and student-centered learning and teaching that is responsive to the needs of diverse students in a major metropolitan area.
