Assistant Professor of Biological Sciences
St. Mary’s University of San Antonio, a private, Catholic university invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in the Department of Biological Sciences beginning August 2018. We are seeking a life scientist with expertise in an area of biology that will complement the current strengths of the department. The primary responsibilities of this position will be teaching undergraduate courses in cell biology and genetic principles. Additional teaching duties may include a cell and molecular methods laboratory course. Preference will be given to individuals who also possess expertise in the field of genetics, cell biology, molecular biology, or bioinformatics. While teaching is the primary function of the position, research, especially involving undergraduates, is expected of the successful candidate. The presence of an active biomedical research community in the San Antonio area provides the opportunity to establish collaborative research projects in many fields. A Ph.D. in Biology or a related discipline is required and postdoctoral experience is preferred. Preference will be given to candidates who demonstrate an interest in affiliating with the University’s Center for Catholic Studies and working to integrate biosciences and Catholic social teaching.
