FACULTY JOBS

INSTRUCTIONAL

Department Of Teaching And Learning. Assistant Professor, Foundations of Education. Tenure-track. Candidates should demonstrate strong teaching and research interests in the role of social class, language, gender, or ethnicity in formal and/or nonformal educational settings. Candidates must have a strong disciplinary background in one of the following areas: sociology, cultural studies, social history, economics, or educational foundations. Candidates experienced in working in culturally diverse settings are strongly encouraged to apply. Earned doctorate is required, as well as evidence of candidates' approach to teaching and potential for continued scholarly research and publication. Anticipated starting date is Aug. 16, 1997. Review of applications will begin Dec. 1, 1996, and continue until a suitable candidate is appointed. Send a letter of application, vita, three letters of reference, a writing sample, and syllabus of a course taught (if candidate has college teaching experience) to: Dr. Dianne Yardley, Foundations Search Committee, College of Human Resources and Education, Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, VA 24061-0317.

Division Of Engineering Fundamentals. Director of the Division of Engineering Fundamentals. Nominations and applications will be reviewed beginning Dec. 15, 1996. The selection is expected to be made in March 1997, with the appointment to begin in July 1997. Candidates should have a degree in engineering and should have achieved distinction in teaching engineering at the university level. Candidates should also have a record of demonstrated scholarship and administrative ability. The director is responsible for the administration of the freshman engineering program. The division teaches and advises students who have been admitted in general engineering, the common freshman-engineering curriculum. The required courses develop the students' concept of engineering and engineering methods while reinforcing the need for other concurrent required courses (mathematics, chemistry, English). This program provides time for the students to adjust to the college and to select the branch of engineering in which they are most interested. Subsequently-after additional counseling, contacts with the various departments, and satisfactory progress-students make a selection and if academically eligible are transferred to the curriculum of their choice. The division has 1,400 students and the equivalent of 14 faculty members. Application should include a current resume and the names, affiliations, and telephone numbers of at least three references. Send applications and nominations to: Prof. Hugh Munson, Chair, Search Committee, Division of Engineering Fundamentals, 332 Randolph Hall, Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, VA 24061-0218.

Department Of Biology. Postdoctoral Associate. A two-year postdoctoral associate position is available through Virginia Tech to work on an intersite experiment involving 15NH4 additions to streams, pending final approval of funding from NSF. We wish to fill the position by Oct. 1, 1996, or soon thereafter. The postdoctoral associate will serve as the field experiment coordinator for the project. Responsibilities include four- to six-week visits to each of nine field sites located across the U.S. to coordinate 15N additions and the sampling of organisms and streambed materials for 15N analysis. The postdoctoral associate will also help coordinate short-term nutrient and conservative tracer additions at each site prior to the 15N addition and will help perform measures of metabolism during the 15N addition. We seek a broadly trained stream ecologist with experience in field studies of ecosystem processes (e.g., metabolism, organic matter dynamics, nutrient cycling) and population dynamics in streams. Experience in stream solute injections and ecosystem modeling is also desired. The position requires someone with strong organizational as well as interpersonal skills and enthusiasm for field studies.
