Dear colleagues,

Bates College invites applications for an open rank faculty position,
broadly defined, to encompass any STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering
and Mathematics) discipline at Bates. The successful candidate will
demonstrate expertise in supporting the success of students from
underrepresented groups, in addition to commitment to excellence and
innovation in both teaching and scholarship.

Bates College is a small residential liberal arts college that offers
majors in the STEM departments of Biology, Chemistry and Biochemistry,
Geology, Mathematics, and Physics and Astronomy, as well as the
interdisciplinary programs of Environmental Studies and Neuroscience. The
position is open to applicants at the Assistant, Associate, or Full
Professor rank. The candidate will teach in the department or program of
appointment, develop a strong research program, mentor undergraduate thesis
students, and participate in our work to strengthen the success of students
in sciences, and mathematics, acknowledging barriers connected to
identities of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic
status, disability, first generation to college, and all possible
intersections thereof. The committee welcomes candidates with any research
focus, including applications from scholars who study the efficacy of
undergraduate science and math education.

Bates is committed to enhancing the diversity of the campus and the
curriculum. We seek applications from individuals with the ability to
contribute to the college’s efforts to advance social and cultural
diversity, inclusiveness, and the transformative power of our differences.
The search committee expects applicants to identify their strengths and
experiences in these areas, and to describe the ways in which their
research, teaching, and experience will contribute to equity and inclusion
in STEM fields.

A PhD in a STEM field is expected.

Review of applications begins *January 10, 2018* and will continue until
the position is filled.

Applications should include the following:

   - Cover letter that addresses what interests you about working at a
   small, residential, liberal arts college
   - A current CV
   - A statement describing your teaching plans and philosophy
   - A statement of proposed research that will be evaluated by a committee
   of faculty members from many STEM disciplines
   - A statement describing how your teaching and/or research will support
   the institutional commitment to enhance social and cultural diversity and
   - Graduate school transcripts
   - Shortlisted candidates will be asked to provide letters of
   recommendation from three referees, at least one of which will discuss the
   applicant’s role as an active participant in efforts to support student

Bates is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer. Because the
college recognizes that employment decisions often involve two careers,
Bates welcomes applications for shared positions. Employment is contingent
on successful completion of a background check. For more information about
