Employment Opportunities at Wyoming Catholic College

Open Job Postings

Wyoming Catholic College is seeking a Teaching Fellow who will teach (pending funding) five sections per semester for a two-year term (with a possibility of renewal for another term). The ideal candidate will: know the college’s curriculum well, have experience in teaching at the collegiate level, have completed a PhD before joining faculty, and (most importantly) be able to demonstrate to the hiring committee the ability to teach in multiple disciplinary tracks (for example, humanities and trivium, or theology and ELP, or philosophy and science). WCC has an integrated curriculum which means that all faculty members cultivate interest in and knowledge of other curricular tracks.

The hiring committee will begin reviewing applications immediately, and will continue to review applications until the position is filled.

Please send inquiries and applications to the Academic Dean, Dr. Jason Baxter (jason.baxter@wyomingcatholiccollege.com). Applications should include a cover letter (in which the applicant discusses what parts of the curriculum he or she could teach in) and a cv. Letters of recommendation will be requested after an initial review of applications.

Wyoming Catholic College is seeking a physicist who would enjoy teaching (at the rank of Assistant Professor) non-majors in a highly interdisciplinary environment. The ideal candidate will have teaching and research experience in a theoretical field of physics and be attentive to its philosophical implications, have an ability to speak to non-scientists about science in a clear and exciting way, and have a background in the liberal arts and a demonstrable, ongoing interest in engaging questions about the relationship between the natural sciences and other disciplines (such as how to understand free will vs. physical determinism, or the relation between mathematical formalism and nature, or the harmony between the scientific and scriptural accounts of human origins). The ideal candidate will be thoroughly familiar with Wyoming Catholic College’s integrated curriculum, would enjoy teaching any class within the College’s science and math sequence, and would be interested in teaching or co-teaching outside of the math and science curriculum at some future date. Given the integrated nature of the curriculum at Wyoming Catholic (where all students must take all courses), it is imperative that the prospective faculty member be willing to engage colleagues with non-scientific backgrounds and be excited about maintaining a bridge between the mathematics and science courses and other academic disciplines.

The applicant should read and agree with the vision and mission of Wyoming Catholic College as articulated in the Philosophical Vision Statement and the Academic Catalog. This understanding should be manifested in the letter of intent.

Faculty are typically required to teach a course load of 12 hours per week, to direct one or more theses, and to assist in some administrative duties. Faculty at Wyoming Catholic College are committed to teaching and serving students as their first and foremost responsibility. Salary and benefits are competitive.

Wyoming Catholic College welcomes applications for this position regardless of the applicant’s race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, or disability.

A letter of intent, curriculum vitae, and three names of academic reference (letters will be requested at a later date) should be sent to the Dr. Jason Baxter, Academic Dean, Wyoming Catholic College, 306 Main St., Lander, WY 82520, or by email to
jason.baxter@wyomingcatholiccollege.com.

We will begin reviewing applications on December 1, 2018. For full consideration, please submit an application by that date.
