Job Title:

Visiting Assistant Professor in Neuroscience



Job Description:

The Neuroscience Program at Rhodes College invites qualified applicants for a two-year visiting Assistant Professor position beginning in August 2023. The area of specialization within Neuroscience is open. Rhodes College believes that diversity and inclusion are critical to our success as an institution and we seek to recruit, develop, and retain the most talented people from a diverse candidate pool. The successful candidate must demonstrate a firm commitment to teaching at a liberal arts college and have a Ph.D. (completed by August 2023) in Neuroscience or a related field. Teaching responsibilities will comprise three involvements per semester, consisting of a combination of introductory, upper-level, senior seminar, and/or nonmajors courses within the interdisciplinary Neuroscience major (includes faculty from Biology , Psychology , Chemistry , and Philosophy Departments). The successful candidate must be able to offer an upper-level lecture plus laboratory course in their area of expertise, as well as an introductory lecture plus laboratory course for nonmajors. Laboratory sections count as full teaching involvements, and so laboratory-associated courses constitute two of three involvements for the semester.

Rhodes is a nationally ranked residential college committed to the liberal arts and sciences. Our highest priorities are intellectual engagement, service to others, commitment to diversity and inclusion, and honor among ourselves. Our students live and learn on one of the country's most beautiful campuses, located in the heart of Memphis, an economic, medical, and culturally diverse center, making Rhodes one of a handful of prominent liberal arts colleges in a major metropolitan area.

Rhodes College prides itself on being a diverse, inclusive, and welcoming environment. We are an equal opportunity employer committed to diversity and anti-discrimination .

A complete application will include 1) a cover letter that addresses the strengths the candidate will bring as a teacher and scholar to a liberal arts college environment; 2) a curriculum vitae; and 3) a separate statement that addresses how your experiences with teaching, scholarship, and/or service will contribute to a college community that includes a commitment to diversity and inclusion as one of its core values. Also, you must include the following under Additional Documents: 4) a statement of teaching philosophy, and 5) a statement of research. Letters of recommendation will only be solicited for short-listed applicants. Review of completed applications will begin March 2nd, 2021 and will continue until the position is filled. Candidates from backgrounds typically underrepresented in higher education are strongly encouraged to apply. Background checks are required before candidates can be brought to campus for interviews, and interviews may be conducted using a virtual format.
