We are particularly interested in candidates who could teach advanced courses that offer insight into the biomedical sciences, including but not limited to immunology, virology, or cancer biology.
Qualifications include a Ph.D. in Cell and Molecular Biology (or related disciplines), and a record of strong teaching at the undergraduate level. The successful candidate will have a demonstrated record of strong teaching at the undergraduate level and experience mentoring students who are broadly diverse with regard to race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, gender, nationality, sexual orientation, and religion.
