Work type: Faculty
Location: Gambier, OH

Kenyon College invites applications for a Visiting Assistant Professor in Biology beginning in July 2022. We seek a broadly trained biologist to teach courses including department-coordinated introductory laboratories and lectures, and a 200-level organismal biology lecture and lab course, for instance in plant biology or entomology. We also seek to recruit a diverse and inclusive faculty. The Department of Biology and Kenyon College invest heavily in mentoring new faculty, including visitors, through professional development and modest research support. Applicants should demonstrate a commitment to excellent teaching, including the use of inclusive pedagogies, along with strong mentoring and academic support of diverse student populations. Applicants should hold a Ph.D. degree.

A complete application will be composed of 1) a cover letter; 2) a 2-page statement of the applicant's teaching philosophy that addresses experience with teaching diverse student populations, as well as how inclusivity is addressed in the classroom setting; 3) a Curriculum Vitae; and 4) two letters of recommendation from professional references. All application materials must be submitted electronically through Kenyon's employment website: Review of applications will begin on June 1, 2022 and interviews will be held in June. Please direct questions regarding the position or the application process to Siobhan Fennessy, Search Committee Chair (
