About Vassar College
Vassar is a highly selective, coeducational liberal arts college of about 2400 undergraduates (no graduate students) located in the beautiful and historic Hudson Valley seventy-five miles north of New York City. The city of Poughkeepsie benefits from rich cultural diversity and from convenient commuter rail access to New York City. Vassar faculty are committed teachers/scholars who bring research and creative discovery to life for students in classrooms, labs, and studios and in individually mentored projects. They teach broadly in the curricula of their departments, advise students, and serve on college-wide and departmental committees. The College maintains a generous leave policy, provides strong support for research, and encourages multidisciplinary approaches to teaching.

Biology 108 ‘Information Flow in Biological Systems' has both a lecture and lab component, and the instructor would be responsible for 3 weeks of lectures and teaching one 4 hr laboratory section. The course has a laboratory manual and the instructors of the course meet weekly to discuss the laboratory. Experience teaching at the college level is preferred and a Master's or PhD in a biological science required.
