Augustana University, a selective, private, liberal arts institution in Sioux Falls, SD, invites applications for a full-time, continuing-track Assistant Professor position in the Biology Department beginning Fall 2022. This primarily teaching position will encompass a variety of classes in our current departmental offerings. Candidates are required have a Ph.D. in a biologically-related field by the start of the position. 

Teaching Expectations: Courses will be assigned based on departmental needs from semester to semester, but will generally include lectures and labs for human anatomy and physiology as a primary responsibility, along with introductory biology courses for majors and non-majors as needed. The position will also require preparatory and organizational leadership for the anatomy and physiology labs.  While experience in any and all of these areas is a plus, a demonstrated dedication to undergraduate education and a willingness to be flexible is the primary expectation for this position.  The typical load entails 2 lectures and 4 labs each semester and 1 lecture over the January term.  Summer teaching opportunities outside of the base teaching load are also available.  Student academic advising is also an expectation of the position.  Research is not an expectation for this position.

Salary: Salary is competitive and dependent upon qualifications; excellent fringe benefits are included.

Closing Date: The closing date for this position is December 30th, 2021. Review of applications will begin at that time and will continue until the position has been filled.  

Interacting with students, faculty and leadership with different backgrounds and points of view as well as a deep appreciation of and respect for academic values and culture must be a top value of the candidate.

Application Procedure: Please send a letter of application; a statement of teaching philosophy, scientific expertise and experience, and statement of diversity (how you have worked to promote diversity, equity and inclusion in your previous position and how you plan to continue to do so at Augustana); copies of undergrad and graduate transcripts; a curriculum vita; a completed Augustana University employment application; and three letters of reference electronically to Official web site:

Augustana University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action/Title IX Employer that seeks to recruit, develop and retain a talented and diverse workforce. Augustana University is committed to excellence through diversity and strongly encourages applications from the entire spectrum of a diverse community. Submission of official transcripts may be required upon employment. Finalist candidates must satisfactorily complete a pre-employment background check.
