Given our commitment to cultivating an inclusive educational environment, we seek candidates who can demonstrate a commitment to teaching, mentoring, and inspiring students representing a broad range of socioeconomic backgrounds, political opinions, genders, races, ethnicities, nationalities, sexual orientations, and religions.

Candidates must have demonstrated ability to maintain an active, high-quality research program as well as the highest standards of excellence in teaching and involve undergraduates in research.
