Lecture Track Position in Emory Biology Department

The Department of Biology at Emory University, Atlanta, GA, invites applications for a lecture track faculty position (open rank).

We seek candidates with a Ph.D. in the biological sciences and a strong commitment to pedagogy and a specific interest in teaching and advising undergraduates. Applicants having prior experience with evidence-based teaching practices are encouraged to apply; postdoctoral experience is preferred.

Faculty appointments will be made at the lecture track rank commensurate with current academic standing and achievement as Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, or Professor of Pedagogy (see description of ranks and terms at http://college.emory.edu/faculty/faculty/Policy-for-Appointment-and-Review-of-LTF_Sept-20-2018.pdf).

Demonstrated ability to teach introductory biology is most important, but we also seek teaching and scientific expertise in upper level lecture and laboratory courses, especially in cellular, molecular, and/or organismal biology.  In addition to teaching, commonly four courses per year, successful applicants will be expected to contribute to the academic life and governance of the Department, College of Arts and Sciences, and the University.

The appointee will join a cohesive group of tenure track (24) and lecture track (10) faculty (http://www.biology.emory.edu/), working collaboratively in the teaching and service missions of Emory University, a top 20 research university. Emory is located on a beautiful campus in Atlanta (http://www.atlanta.net/), one of the United States’ most exciting, diverse, and affordable metropolitan areas with sports, natural, and cultural attractions.

Applicants should submit the following: 1) a cover letter; 2) a CV; 3) a reflective statement of your teaching philosophy, experience, and interests (1-3 pages); 4) a statement of your experience and vision for fostering an inclusive learning environment for students of diverse backgrounds (1 page); and 5) if available, sample course materials (e.g. syllabi, assessments, summary of course evaluations; up to 5 documents combined into a single pdf). Applicants should arrange to have three confidential letters of recommendation submitted on their behalf. All files or inquiries should be submitted electronically to: apply.interfolio.com/68250 .

Review of applications will start November 1, 2019; to ensure full consideration, all materials should be received by December 1.  Preliminary interviews will begin in December.
