The Biology Department seeks faculty committed to undergraduate teaching excellence at a comprehensive liberal arts institution that supports both liberal arts and professional programs. The successful candidate should have expertise in developmental biology, neuroscience, genetics, and/or bioinformatics. They should have the ability to teach an upper-level course in their area of expertise as well as courses such as Genetics with lab, General Biology lectures and/or labs, and a senior-level Biology Capping course. The candidate may also teach courses that support the College Core (general education) Curriculum. Teaching responsibilities include 9 and 12 contact hours per week in alternating semesters. Prior teaching experience is desirable; however, candidates with promise and enthusiasm for becoming a skilled teacher are strongly encouraged to apply. Candidates must develop and maintain a robust research program involving undergraduates. Strong preference will be given to candidates who are able to obtain external research funding. Postdoctoral experience is preferred. Service to the College and beyond is also required. Minimum qualifications include a Ph.D. in Biology or closely related field and a strong interest in evidence-based undergraduate science education.
