Lecturer (Physiology)
School of Life Sciences
Arizona State University

The School of Life Sciences (SOLS) at Arizona State University (ASU) invites applications for a full-time, benefits-eligible, non-tenure-eligible Lecturer position with an anticipated start date August 2022. The position is 80% teaching, 20% service . Subsequent academic year renewals (Aug. 16 to May 15) are contingent on satisfactory performance, availability of resources, and the needs of the unit. Supplementary summer teaching may be available.

We seek an individual who is dedicated to excellence in teaching; is invested in developing inclusive curricula and teaching approaches to support the success of our diverse students, many of whom are underrepresented in STEM disciplines; and is excited to collaborate with faculty members who are engaged in research and education in physiology.

The successful candidate will be responsible for teaching and revising undergraduate courses in anatomy and physiology (e.g., BIO 201 & BIO 202 (Human Anatomy and Physiology), BIO 360 (Animal Physiology), BIO 361 (Animal Physiology lab) and related courses. These courses are expected to be taught in both in-person and fully online formats. In addition to teaching, responsibilities will include supervising teaching assistants, developing course materials, and collaborating with other faculty and staff involved in the SOLS educational missions. This person may also be asked to serve the school, college, and university in other service capacities appropriate for the position.

The School of Life Sciences is a broadly interdisciplinary community of undergraduates, M.S. and Ph.D. students, staff, and faculty members who are committed to transforming science education and research by making learning more accessible, inclusive, and impactful through innovations in teaching and connections to nationally recognized research and education programs such as the Research in Inclusive STEM Education (RISE) Center. The School of Life Sciences is embedded within the larger community at ASU, a dynamic, progressive university dedicated to interdisciplinary collaborations, rethinking university education, and integrating excellence in research and teaching. The university has been ranked #1 for innovation by the US News & World Report for the past six years.
