The Department of Biological Sciences at Northern Kentucky University invites applications for a tenure track assistant professor position starting Fall 2020. We welcome applications from candidates with research programs in molecular genetics relevant to human health. We are especially interested in candidates with a broad skill set in molecular techniques and cutting edge technologies that can complement our department’s existing expertise. Appointees will teach undergraduate courses, contribute to advising and mentoring, and run a successful research program involving undergraduate students.

Candidates should be strongly committed to teaching at the undergraduate level and should incorporate innovative, inquiry-based, dynamic, active-learning methods into courses. Primary teaching responsibilities will include courses in our Cellular/Molecular/Genetics track curriculum, such as Genetics and Advanced Molecular Biology, as well as Microbiology for Health Professionals. Additional teaching assignments will depend on the candidate’s expertise and departmental needs, as well as courses that the successful candidate is interested in developing. The successful candidate is expected to grow a productive research program that involves undergraduate students and to pursue external funding. Faculty members are also expected to engage in service activities at all levels of the university and provide academic and professional advising to students.

Review of applications will begin on September 22, 2019.
