Earlham College: Visiting Assistant Professor of Integrative Biology
Earlham College invites applications for a biologist 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 visiting professor position in the Biology
Department. The position begins in August 2014.
The 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.
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.
A Ph.D. or equivalent is required; teaching or post-doctoral experience is desirable.
