DESCRIPTION: Humboldt State University invites applications for an academic year tenure-track faculty position in Genetics/Developmental Biology.

RANK, SALARY AND BENEFITS: We seek to fill this position at the Assistant Professor rank; however, rank and salary are dependent on the appointee's qualifications and experience. The current California State University Salary Schedule is available at: http://www.humboldt.edu/aps/docs/salary/Salary-Schedule.pdf.

Humboldt State University provides an excellent benefits package for faculty. Information about benefits plans can be found at: http://www.humboldt.edu/forms/node/934.

PROFESSIONAL QUALIFICATIONS: An earned Ph.D. or equivalent in Biology or related field from an accredited college or university is required at the time of appointment.
The successful candidate must demonstrate the following:

  • Expertise in genetics and developmental biology;
  • Record of effective teaching at the undergraduate and/or graduate level;
  • Commitment to teaching excellence that incorporates a variety of methodologies at undergraduate and Master's level;
  • Commitment to and/or experience promoting and fostering a learning environment that is supportive of individuals from diverse backgrounds;
  • Ability to involve undergraduate and graduate students in research and scholarly activity;
  • Interest and ability to teach a broad range of courses (major, general education, etc.); and
  • Interest in participating in the CNRS Place-based Learning Communities for first-year students

    Preferred qualifications for this position include:
  • A record of teaching effectiveness in undergraduate genetics or developmental biology courses;
  • Established, extramurally funded research program in developmental biology; and
  • A record of commitment to cultivating a diverse, inclusive, and supportive environment through work with groups that are underrepresented in STEM fields.

At the time of appointment, the successful candidate, if not a U.S. citizen, must have authorization from the Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services to work in the United States. For information on the University policy on support for non-immigrant probationary faculty visa acquisition, please visit the Faculty Immigration Resources page: https://extended.humboldt.edu/international-programs/immigration/faculty.

Evidence of degree(s) is required at time of hire.

Professional Duties: Candidates should be committed to teaching excellence and to building a strong research record. Instructional assignments may include: upper division courses in Genetics, Animal Development and one or more upper-division or graduate level courses in a specialty area such as Bioinformatics or Evo-Devo, and a seminar for first-year students. Instructional assignments will be consistent with the programmatic needs of the department and students.

The primary professional responsibilities of instructional faculty members are: teaching; research, scholarship and creative activity; and service to the University, profession and to the community. These responsibilities include: advising students, participation in campus and system-wide committees, maintaining office hours, working collaboratively and productively with colleagues, and participation in traditional academic functions. Probationary faculty are typically provided ongoing mentorship to be a successful member of the faculty. During the first two years of the probationary period, teaching responsibilities will be reduced by approximately one course each semester. The reduced teaching load supports the establishment of research, scholarship and/or creative activities required for retention, tenure and promotion.
