Earlham College invites applications for a Visiting Assistant Professor position in Biology. This is a two-year appointment to begin in August 2014.

Primary Duties & Responsibilities
Teaching responsibilities will include contributing to introductory team-taught courses in Genetics and Cell Biology and upper-level courses in Anatomy and Physiology and the applicant’s area of expertise. Candidates who have expertise in the following areas are especially attractive: molecular genetics, developmental processes, signal transduction and/or integrative physiology. The ability to contribute to the Neuroscience curriculum is also strongly desired. There are opportunities for student-faculty collaborative research.
Experience & Qualifications
A Ph.D. or equivalent is preferred; teaching or post-doctoral experience is desirable.
Candidates should email applications as a single PDF including a curriculum vitae, a statement of teaching philosophy, and a statement of research interests. In addition, candidates should arrange for three letters of reference to be emailed.

Earlham also is eager to solicit applications from members of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers).
