The Department of Biological Sciences at Mount Holyoke College invites applications for a full-time Visiting Lecturer during the 2018-19 academic year. This is a one-year, non-renewable teaching position, with competitive salary and benefits. The successful candidate will teach a small, topical introductory biology course with lab both fall and spring semesters, and an upper level course in their field of specialty. The introductory course (Bio 145) is not a comprehensive survey. Instead, instructors are asked to teach within their area of specialty in a way that illustrates central themes in biology such as interactions across multiple levels.
Qualifications include a Ph.D. in the biological sciences, and a record of strong teaching at the undergraduate level. The successful candidate will have experience mentoring students who are broadly diverse with regard to race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, gender, nationality, sexual orientation, and religion.
Applications must be made online at https://jobs.mtholyoke.edu/. Candidates will submit a cover letter, CV, and statements concerning (1) teaching philosophy, including descriptions of possible themes for both introductory and advanced courses to be taught, and (2) a statement about mentoring a diverse student body. Applicants should also arrange to have three letters of reference submitted on their behalf. Electronic prompts to referees will be generated automatically (and letters of reference accepted) only after the completed application has been submitted. Completed applications will be reviewed as received. Please contact Rachel Fink, Chair of Biological Sciences, at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
