Assistant Professor of Organismal Biology

The Biology Department of Hendrix College is seeking to hire a broadly trained Organismal Biologist for a tenure track position to start in August 2014.  A successful applicant will teach the introductory level course for majors, non-majors classes, and courses in the candidate’s specialty.  The area of specialty is open.  The position is full-time teaching and the successful candidate will teach two course lectures plus laboratories, or their equivalent, each semester.  While research is not a requirement for this position, a research program involving undergraduates will be encouraged and supported.  A Ph.D. is required, but A.B.D. candidates will be considered. Applications should include a cover letter addressing the candidate’s interest in working in a demanding liberal arts environment, a teaching philosophy statement, a curriculum vitae, three letters of recommendation (including the phone numbers and email addresses of the referees), and transcripts of all graduate and undergraduate work. Applications from candidates with an interest in participating in the common freshman course and other interdisciplinary programs, and in using instructional technology where appropriate, will be particularly welcome.  

Review of applications will begin November 15, 2013.  Application materials should be sent or emailed to: Dr. Mark Sutherland, Hendrix College, 1600 Washington Avenue, Conway, AR 72032.
