Visiting Assistant Professor of Biology — Integrative
November 07, 2013
Earlham College invites applications for a Visiting Assistant Professor of Biology position with teaching and research interests that explicitly bridge ecological/evolutionary/organismal and cell/molecular fields. This is a one-year, renewable up to three year, full-time appointment in the Biology Department. The position begins in August 2014.
The Biology Department seeks an individual who is first and foremost excited about teaching — in lecture, laboratory and research venues — to bright and motivated undergraduates in a nationally ranked department at a small liberal arts college.
Primary Duties & Responsibilities
Teaching responsibilities will include contributing to introductory team-taught courses in both ecological/evolutionary/organismal and cell/molecular biology, and upper-level courses in the applicant’s area of expertise. Applicants who have an expertise in one or more of the following areas are especially attractive: molecular evolution, disease ecology/epidemiology, microbial ecology, applied environmental science, and/or fields that address questions or use methods/tools in both “macro” and “micro” biology. There are also opportunities for student-faculty collaborative research.
Experience & Qualifications
A Ph.D. or equivalent is required; teaching or post-doctoral experience is desirable.
Candidates should email applications as a single PDF including cover letter, curriculum vitae, statements of teaching philosophy and research interests. (Combined statements should not exceed four pages.)
In addition, candidates should arrange for three letters of reference to be emailed.
Send emails to Erica Butler, Biology Department administrative assistant, at: email@example.com.
Review of applications will begin on December 15, 2013, and continue until the position is filled.

Earlham also is eager to solicit applications from members of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers).
