Sarah Lawrence College Department of Biology seeks guest faculty to teach semester-long courses in Developmental Biology, Marine Biology, and Animal Behavior over the 2021-2022 academic year.
Candidates interested in teaching one, two, or all three classes are encouraged to apply.

Each course is capped at 15 students and is comprised of a seminar class (typically meeting 2x/week) and biweekly meetings with individual students to work on a semester-long independent project. Therefore, we seek instructors dedicated to developing the research, writing, and analytical skills of their students in addition to imparting the material of their discipline. Students at SLC do not declare majors, and are encouraged to explore coursework in diverse disciplines in order to obtain a rich liberal arts education. Therefore, these biology courses, like many in the Sarah Lawrence curriculum, will ideally be taught at the “open” level, meaning all students, regardless of past coursework, will be eligible to enroll. As they prepare their applications, candidates are encouraged to consult the SLC course catalog to view the style and content of course descriptions, especially open courses taught in science and mathematics.

Application materials must include: (1) cover letter including which course(s) you are interested in teaching and in which semester(s); (2) CV; (3) statement of teaching philosophy including how consideration of diversity, equity, and inclusion informs your teaching; (4) descriptions of the course(s) you would like to teach including any texts you would use; and (5) names and contact information for three references.

A PhD is required and college level teaching experience is preferred.

Review of applications will begin April 15 and continue until the positions are filled.
