Assistant Professor - Biological Sciences with a focus in Cell and Molecular Biology

The Biological Sciences Division of the School of Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM) at the University of Washington Bothell (UWB)

Bothell, WA

Posted 11/22/2023

The division of Biological Sciences is a vibrant and growing community comprised of twelve full-time faculty. Our biology graduates approximately 200 undergraduate students each year. All of our undergraduates participate in research, either within a faculty members research program, through an internship, or in a research course. The Biological Sciences faculty have recently moved into a brand-new building, Innovation Hall, including state of the art labs, and facilities for plants and cell culture. We do not have vertebrate animal facilities on campus, but welcome research programs working with invertebrate, or cell systems. The campus also has a greenhouse, a 52-acre restored wetland, and a new environmental education center. We believe students learn biology best by engaging in the scientific process, and we are committed to teaching practices that foster learning in students from a variety of backgrounds, including students from backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in science.
We welcome applications in Cell and Molecular biology areas, including but not limited to research and teaching interests in: cellular biology, developmental biology, genetics, or biology at a cellular or molecular level.

The successful candidate will be expected to engage in excellent teaching and mentoring at the undergraduate level, and to support and enhance learning for diverse populations. The successful candidate will have a strong commitment to inclusive teaching and mentoring practices to support our diverse student population and will be expected to propose and develop an active research program involving undergraduates in Cell and Molecular Biology or work at a cellular level. The successful candidate will be expected to apply for extramural funding to support this research program. Candidates must have a doctorate (or foreign equivalent) in Cell and Molecular Biology or related field. 1 year (12 months) Postdoctoral research experience or foreign equivalent is required by the date of hire.

Priority deadline Dec 22, 2023
