      McMurry University has recently been awarded a Title V grant to allow our physics department to expand and introduce an Engineering Physics major. We will accompany the launch of the new major with a substantial student support component to improve outcomes for our students, particularly those who could benefit from a summer bridge program preparing them for college-level calculus and the first calculus-based physics coursework.

      We are searching for an individual to join our team as an engineering physics faculty member.
      McMurry University (McM) is a private, liberal arts university affiliated with the United Methodist Church. It serves a population of over 1000 undergraduate students. It is historically known for the strength of its science programs. During the last decade, the McMurry Physics Program has experienced substantial growth in several areas, including the number of students, the number of physics graduates, as well as the diversity of the student population. The majority of the recent graduates are pursuing careers in engineering or closely related fields.

      If you have a colleague or know of an individual who would be interested in joining our team, would you please consider making this opportunity known to them?

      We are seeking people who are passionate about the goals and work of Title V, encouraging the success of traditionally underrepresented students in this field, and who have a desire to collaborate with a like-minded team to build something that serves students and through them communities they touch.
      Details for the position are below
