Visiting Assistant Professor or Visiting Instructor of Biology With Cellular and Molecular Focus

(posted 03/27/15)

The Biology Department at Hollins University seeks applications for a Visiting Assistant Professor or Visiting Instructor of Biology with training in cellular and molecular biology. This is a full-time, visiting faculty position beginning July 2015, with possibility of continuation based on incumbent’s satisfactory performance and institutional need.

Applicants must be able to teach a lecture/laboratory course in introductory cell and molecular biology (one of four core courses for the biology major) and an upper-level genetics course. Successful applicants will also be expected to teach a non-majors’ course in cell biology or genetics and/or a lecture/laboratory course in their field of specialization that will support the biology curriculum.

Ph.D. degree is preferred by time of appointment. Applications are sought from candidates who share Hollins’ commitment to preparing students for leadership opportunities in a broadly diverse, global society. Candidates seeking to broaden their experience with college-level teaching in a liberal arts setting are encouraged to apply. Final candidates will be subject to a criminal history background check.

Qualified candidates should submit a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, statement of teaching philosophy, three letters of recommendation, and graduate school transcripts (unofficial transcripts are acceptable) to vpaa@hollins.edu. Questions about the position and the curriculum should be directed to Dr. Morgan Wilson (mwilson@hollins.edu). Application review will begin immediately, and will continue until the position is filled. Applications received by April 10, 2015 will receive full consideration.
