The Department of Biological Sciences at the University of the Virgin Islands (UVI) seeks to hire a full-time, non-tenure track professor at the Assistant level for Fall 2024. We seek faculty who will inspire and mentor students at all levels while ensuring high academic standards in a nurturing and learner-centered environment in keeping with our HBCU status. The successful applicant will teach, mentor in research, and advise undergraduates, as well as graduate students in the Master of Marine and Environmental Science Program (MMES). They will teach lectures and labs in multiple areas of biology, including research and problem-based learning, carry out an independent research program, advise and mentor students, and participate in University service and community outreach activities. The successful applicant will work productively with students and colleagues of diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds.

The College provides degrees in Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Marine Biology, Mathematics, Physics, and Process Technology. It includes three research centers that bridge the STEM fields: the Center for Marine and Environmental Sciences, the Caribbean Green Technology Center, the Virgin Islands Center for STEM Education Research and Practice, and the Etelman Observatory. Opportunities leading to degrees in engineering and medicine at affiliated universities augment our degree offerings. The College also has student training programs supported by NSF, NIH, and DOE.

It is the lead institution for NSF EPSCoR funding for our territorial program Ridge to Reef Processes and Interdependent Drivers of Small Island Resilience (https://viepscor.org/). UVI’s mission is to educate and empower the U.S. Virgin Islands, the Caribbean and the world through an environment that promotes creativity, innovation and excellence in teaching, student learning, research, and community engagement. As a uniquely American, English-speaking institution within the Caribbean and circum-Caribbean, UVI’s role as a producer/venue of thought leaders is critically important to the US Virgin Islands, the wider Caribbean, and the World. UVI is a community that intentionally engages individuals with diverse backgrounds, talents, skills, ideas, and perspectives to weave a vibrant learning and working environment.
