Visiting Assistant Professor of Biology
The Biology Department at Kenyon College invites applications for a Visiting Assistant Professor beginning in August 2018. We seek a broadly trained Microbiologist with expertise that complements current faculty strengths in behavior, ecology, evolution, genetics, immunology, molecular biology, neuroscience, and physiology.
The successful candidate will teach upper level lecture and lab courses in microbiology, and will participate in the introductory biology laboratory sequence. The candidate may also have the opportunity to develop a course for non-majors and to engage in research with undergraduate students. Applicants should demonstrate the potential for teaching excellence and a commitment to undergraduate education. A completed PhD is preferred, but excellent ABD applicants will be considered.
Review of applications will begin 3/12/18 and will continue until the position is filled. To apply, candidates should visit the online application site found at http://careers.kenyon.edu. A complete application will be composed of 1) a cover letter discussing the applicant's research and scholarship undertaken, its relevance to the field or discipline, and prior teaching experience; 2) a statement of the applicant's teaching philosophy; 3) a Curriculum Vitae; and 4) three letters of recommendation. The application should address, in the cover letter and in other documents, why teaching at Kenyon is a good fit for the candidate, and how they will promote a culturally and intellectually diverse and inclusive educational environment. A competitive application will cite specific examples of past accomplishments and prospective ideas. All application materials must be submitted electronically through Kenyon's employment website.
