The Department of Biology at Gannon University seeks applications to fill a full-time, 9-month, tenure track Assistant Professor position beginning August 2023. We are seeking a broadly trained biologist to join our existing 17 faculty members in providing high-quality instructional and research experiences to undergraduate students. Preference will be given to candidates holding a Ph.D., those with previous teaching experience, and individuals with perspectives that integrate multiple aspects of the biological sciences. Candidates that are ABD and will receive their degree before July 2024 will be considered.
Biology faculty teach 24 credit hours in the academic year (lectures = 3 credits, labs = 2 credits). The successful candidate will be expected to teach a combination of:
  • introductory Biology courses (Molecular & Cell Biology, Animal Form & Function);
  • upper-level Biology electives (Endocrinology, Developmental Biology, Embryology, Virology);
  • Human Anatomy and Physiology courses for health science majors; and
  • other courses in the Biology curriculum as needed.

All faculty are expected to participate in academic advising, pursue professional development, and provide service to the University, community, and the profession. Undertaking scholarship with undergraduate students as defined by the Boyer model is also expected of tenured and tenure-track faculty.

Interested candidates should apply online at https://gannon.peopleadmin.com/postings/8643 for full consideration by October 28, 2022. Applications should include (1) a cover letter, (2) curriculum vitae, (3) unofficial undergraduate and graduate transcripts (official required for hire), (4) a statement of teaching interest and philosophy, (5) a brief statement of research plans that include undergraduates, and (6) contact information for three references from which recommendations can be requested.
The Department of Biology supports the university's commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion, and actively encourages women, BIPOC, and all under-represented minorities to apply.
