Professor of Natural Sciences
Deep Springs College seeks a professor of natural sciences. The position has a 2-2 teaching load, and provides an opportunity to develop a sequence of 8 classes over the course of two years in consultation with students and other faculty members. This allows the chair to explore their own interests while encouraging breadth within the natural sciences. Deep Springs’ location in an area of rich geological and biological diversity, on the edge of the Great Basin, Sierra, and Mohave desert provides excellent occasions for fieldwork and study. In addition, the working cattle ranch, farm, and garden offer opportunities for professors to work with and draw from in their classes. Science professors have access to an on-campus lab space, an herbarium, and a small collection of local minerals and archeological specimens. The chair may design courses to focus on labs, fieldwork, or seminar discussions. The college makes available professional development funds, is prepared to support modest research, and provides four months a year without academic commitments. Open to candidates at the junior or senior level.
