The mechanics of hiring sound similar to those at a research institution: there an ad, people send in resumes, statements of research and teaching philosophy, is an ad, people send in resumes, statements of research and teaching philosophy, and arrange three letters of recommendation. A search committee screens the applications. However, since most physics departments at teaching institutions are small, search committees will usually involve physicists in areas quite different from the one of the applicant. It might even include scientists from areas other than physics. The application materials should be tailored appropriately: you will not be talking
