We are also particularly interested in candidates who will help promote and provide diversity. Candidates may apply for multiple searches, and must submit a separate application for each opening. Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, a 3-5 page summary of current and proposed research, a statement of teaching interests, and arrange to have three letters of recommendation sent on their behalf to the relevant search(es).
