Sarah Lawrence College invites applications for a tenure track position in Biology beginning Fall 2018. The successful candidate will be broadly trained in neurobiology; sub-fields can include a wide range of disciplines, including behavior, development, evolutionary neuroscience, neurogenetics, neuroimmunology, or other fields. The successful candidate must be a dedicated teacher who will be responsible for developing a wide curriculum in neurobiology-related courses, and will be expected to work closely with students to develop writing and critical thinking skills in both the class and lab setting. Preference will be given to those candidates who are also able to teach courses outside neurobiology. A Ph.D. in Biology and prior college level teaching experience are required. Sarah Lawrence is a small liberal arts college with a unique pedagogy based on small classes and individual tutorials; interdisciplinary work is a central component of the curriculum. 

Application materials must include:  cover letter, CV, copy of graduate transcript, statements of teaching philosophy and research interests, two course descriptions, and three letters of recommendation.  Deadline for applications is November 17, 2017.  To apply for the position please go to: http://slc.peopleadmin.com/postings/936
