Tenure-track Assistant Professor
The Biology Department seeks to hire a tenure-track assistant professor, effective July 1, 2014. Ph.D. and teaching experience required; post-doctoral research strengthens the application. The successful applicant will teach (1) a lecture/ lab course in ecology, (2) an additional course in conservation or global change biology, (3) a part of the team-taught introductory biology program, and will supervise senior thesis research.
