Hanover College — Assistant Professor of Biology

The Biology Department at Hanover College invites applications for a full-time tenure-track Assistant Professor to start August 2023. A Ph.D. in Biology or a related field is required; A.B.D. will be considered, but degree must be earned prior to the start date. Undergraduate teaching experience is preferred. The Department is committed to the recruitment and success of students from underrepresented groups in Biology, and applicants should describe in their cover letter how they will further this goal. The successful candidate will teach introductory sequence courses for majors and non-majors, including Ecology & Evolution, Cell & Molecular Biology, and Concepts of Biology. This position seeks to expand and to diversify upper-level course offerings within the cellular and molecular biology core of the Department by offering two upper-level courses within the individual’s specialization. In the cellular and molecular biology core, the Department currently staffs courses in Genetics, Cell Biology, Developmental Biology, Microbiology, Molecular Biology, and Virology. For this position, the specialization is open, but the ability to teach Immunology, Neurobiology, or Parasitology is a plus. Specifically, preference will be for an individual using cellular/molecular approaches in their research, with the ability to actively incorporate students in their research program. Additional responsibilities include advising students, engaging in scholarship that involves undergraduates, and providing departmental and college service.

The successful candidate will join a thriving and growing academic department committed to student-centered teaching and research. The Biology Department is outfitted with necessary equipment to perform basic and advanced studies with students including cell culture (plate reader, shaking incubator, CO2 incubator), NanoDrop spectrophotometer, gel documentation apparatus, micropipettes, western blot apparatuses, and stereo, compound, fluorescent, and inverted microscopes.
