Candidates should submit (1) a detailed cover letter, (2) a statement of teaching philosophy and experience, and (3) a statement of research interests, experience, and future plans (including ability to conduct quality research on a limited budget).  Include a Curriculum Vitae, graduate transcripts, evidence of teaching effectiveness including quantitative and discursive students’ evaluations, and three current reference letters (at least one addressing teaching ability and experience).
