The successful candidate must demonstrate a high aptitude for and interest in undergraduate teaching, a commitment to the liberal arts, a promise of scholarly excellence, and a desire to involve undergraduates in scholarship both inside and outside the classroom.

Kalamazoo College is a highly selective nationally known liberal arts college, offering an integrated undergraduate experience that weaves a traditional liberal arts curriculum into educational experiences in both domestic and international settings. The campus is located midway between Chicago and Detroit/Ann Arbor in Kalamazoo, Michigan, a metropolitan community of 335,000, which supports several college and university campuses along with numerous civic arts and cultural associations. Thirty-five miles from Lake Michigan, the area offers many opportunities for outdoor activities.

Completed applications received by November 15, 2018, will receive full consideration, with later applications reviewed as needed until the position is filled.
