We are particularly interested in candidates with research focusing on functional morphology, biomechanics, or animal physiology. Postdoctoral or other relevant research experience is expected.  Successful candidates are expected to develop an independent, sustainable, externally funded research program. Successful candidates must also demonstrate the ability to contribute to teaching in the introductory core curriculum (a four course sequence in evolution, genetics, cell biology, and ecology) in addition to offering upper-level courses in their area of expertise.

The College is committed to providing students with outstanding degree programs in basic and applied sciences as well as mathematics, and to increasing the number of students choosing STEM fields of study. Our programs prepare students to function in a multi-cultural and economically interdependent world and to succeed in any career they choose.  The Biological Sciences department adheres to the mission of the College, and offers high quality programs including a BS in Biological Sciences, a BA in Biological Sciences, and several accelerated BS/MS programs offered in collaboration with the Graduate School of Biological Sciences at the Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine.

The application must be submitted through our online application system as a single “.pdf” file containing a cover letter, curriculum vitae (CV), a statement of teaching experience and philosophy, and a statement of current and future research interests. The contact information for three professional references should be included in the CV. Review of applications will begin immediately.
