Assistant Professor of Biology (Microbiology)
Whitman College

Located in the historic community of Walla Walla, Whitman's beautiful tree-lined campus is home to an intellectually diverse, dynamic, and supportive community of some 500 staff and faculty serving roughly 1,500 students from the local region and across the globe. With exceptional students, accomplished faculty and staff, along with a fiercely loyal and growing number of engaged alumni, Whitman College continues to build on its national reputation for academic excellence as one of the top liberal arts colleges in the country.

The Department of Biology seeks applicants for a Tenure-track position beginning August 2022, with expertise in Microbiology, at the rank of assistant professor, pending final budgetary approval. Applicants must have a Ph.D. by the time of appointment. Post-doctoral experience is preferred.

The successful candidate will teach an upper level microbiology course with lab and other courses that contribute to the biology curriculum for majors and non-majors and that complement rather than duplicate existing areas of expertise. Applicants are encouraged to describe in their cover letter how their microbiology expertise might interface with an interdisciplinary field, such as public health or computational biology. The annual teaching load at Whitman is five course equivalents, which includes thesis mentoring. The College provides a generous pre-tenure sabbatical leave program and professional development support for both research and teaching.

Whitman College is committed to cultivating an inclusive learning community. Applicants should be able to demonstrate their commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion and articulate how their classroom and scholarly practices work to advance antiracism in the learning environment. This statement can be included in the cover letter or the teaching statement. In their cover letter, candidates should address their interest in working at a liberal arts college with undergraduates, majors as well as non-majors, at all levels of instruction.

To apply, go to https://whitman.bamboohr.com/jobs/view.php?id=113. BambooHR will prompt you to submit all of the required materials: a letter of application; separate statements addressing the candidate's teaching interests and scholarly/performance agenda; curriculum vitae; contact information for three references; graduate transcripts; and evidence of demonstrated or potential excellence in undergraduate instruction.

Review of applications will begin October 21st, 2021.

Whitman College is cultivating a community built on inclusion and belonging. We recognize the value of those who can offer historically underrepresented perspectives and encourage applications from those whose background, knowledge, and insights from lived experience can add to the college's working and learning environment. Whitman College is an EEO employer.

No applicant shall be discriminated against on the basis of race, color, sex, gender, religion, age, marital status, national origin, disability, veteran's status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or any other basis prohibited by applicable federal, state, or local law.
