This endowed, tenure-track position is open to applicants at the level of either Assistant or Associate Professor. Applicants are expected to hold a PhD and to have postdoctoral experience. The successful applicant will have a demonstrated record of excellence in research and a commitment to the highest quality of graduate and undergraduate teaching.
