Demonstrated commitment to teaching and learning, openness to innovation, and a genuine dedication to working with undergraduates in a small, collegial liberal arts setting is strongly preferred. Willingness to participate in broad service to the college, such as advising, committee work, and professional development, is required. Ph.D. preferred, ABD (with degree expected by August 2023) considered.
