Green River College welcomes faculty who have a commitment to excellence in teaching and the ability to utilize a variety of methods and modes of instruction to ensure student success. Given the diversity of our student population, we encourage applications from faculty who can adapt teaching methods to a wide range of student backgrounds and interests.
The Science Division at Green River College is seeking innovative and creative faculty who are committed to establishing positive working relationships with students, colleagues, staff and administrators.
Faculty members in the Physics department actively participate in local and national professional societies. They have secured grants for projects aimed at teaching science to elementary education majors and to promote undergraduate research. The department also has a very active chapter of the Society of Physics Students.
The Science division is accepting applications for a full-time, tenure track Physics faculty position beginning September 2017 and continuing with annual nine-month contracts. The College anticipates filling this position contingent upon availability of funding. Responsibilities include teaching, student advising, curriculum review and revision, as well as other activities. Faculty will be involved in division and campus meetings, committees and activities. Primary teaching responsibilities will be for Physics classes - from Physics for students of Liberal Arts to Physics for scientists and engineers, but the successful candidate may also teach Astronomy. While most classes are held during the day at our main Auburn campus, during some academic terms full-time physics faculty may be required to teach classes at night and/or at the GRC branch campus in Kent.
