Assistant Teaching Professor

Location: Notre Dame, IN
Open Date: Oct 25, 2021
Deadline: Nov 29, 2021 at 11:59 PM Eastern Time

Description: The Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Notre Dame seeks a broadly trained and innovative biology educator at the Assistant Teaching Professor level to contribute to our Introductory Biology sequence, and to teach specialized, upper-level courses in any area of biology, including ecology, evolution, physiology, and cellular or molecular biology. This renewable, non-tenure track position is available starting fall semester 2022, and is expected to be a long-term, continuing position with opportunities for promotion.

Our novel Introductory Biology sequence was designed using principles outlined in AAAS Vision and Change, integrates across levels of biology, and uses student-centered and inclusive pedagogical approaches. Within our Introductory Biology sequence, successful candidates would deliver a semester-long undergraduate research experiences course and/or join a team of instructors in an integrative lecture course. Successful candidates will also be asked to develop and teach upper-division courses based on the needs of the department and the applicant's area of expertise. While the position would be primarily teaching intensive, the ideal candidate would also undertake scholarship in pedagogical research or provide research experiences for undergraduates outside their teaching commitment.

The candidate must possess a graduate degree in an area of life sciences and have experience teaching at the collegiate level using student-centered, active learning strategies. The candidate should be broadly trained in biology, with expertise in at least one of the following areas: ecology, evolution, physiology, or cellular/molecular biology. Finally, the candidate should have significant research experience to provide mentorship in either course-based or individualized research opportunities for undergraduates.

Preferred Qualifications:

The preferred candidate will have a Ph.D., and have skills and experience in educational assessment and/or research-based laboratory courses.
