Hello All -

Pardon me to adding to the list of job openings, but it is the season!

We are seeking a dynamic educator-researcher to join our department at the
advanced-assistant or associate professor level.  Because classes at
Colorado College are taught on the ‘block plan’ (i.e. students take only
one class at a time for 3.5 weeks & there are 4 blocks/semester, with a
maximum of 25 students/class; students can also dedicate blocks to
independent research), there are abundant opportunities to engage
creatively with our highly-motivated undergraduate students both in the
field & the laboratory, as well as the classroom. Doing so can be a
challenge, but it is also amazing rewarding.  Our department, and CC in
general, is a great place to work, and being in Colorado sure doesn’t hurt.

See the attached for more details in the position, and please feel free to
pass it on to anyone else you know who may be interested!
