The Biology Department at Hanover College invites applications for a full-time Visiting Assistant Professor to start August 2022. Candidates with a Ph.D. are preferred, but A.B.D. will be considered. Previous teaching experience with undergraduates is preferred. The successful candidate will teach introductory sequence courses for majors and non-majors, including Ecology & Evolution, Cell & Molecular Biology, and Concepts of Biology. This position will also expand course offerings within the cellular and molecular biology core of the Department by offering two upper-level courses not currently offered by the Department (e.g., Immunology, Neuroscience, Parasitology). In the cellular and molecular biology core, the Department currently staffs courses in Genetics, Cell Biology, Developmental Biology, Microbiology, Molecular Biology, and Virology, and is looking to diversify upper-level course offerings.   

The successful candidate will join a thriving and growing academic department on campus with student-centered teaching and research as the top priority, and a commitment to the recruitment and success of students from underrepresented groups in Biology.  The College's Natural Sciences Division is located in the award-winning Science Center and the Biology Department is outfitted with necessary equipment to perform basic and advanced studies with students including cell culture (plate reader, shaking incubator, CO2 incubator), NanoDrop spectrophotometer, gel documentation apparatus, micropipettes, western blot apparatuses, and stereo, compound, fluorescent, and inverted microscopes. 

Review of applications begins immediately and continues until the position is filled. For best consideration, applications should be received by November 12, 2021. Electronic applications should include application letter, curriculum vita, statements of teaching and research interest, a list of 3 references, and transcripts, addressed to Dr. Natalia Hubbs, Chair, Biology Search.  Women, minorities, individuals with disabilities and veterans are encouraged to apply.
