Biology Department, Wesleyan University

The Biology Department at Wesleyan University seeks a new tenure-track assistant professor in cell and developmental biology, beginning July 1, 2021. The candidate will develop an active research program to address fundamental problems in biology. We seek a colleague who will complement and contribute to our current research and teaching strengths in cell and developmental biology, genomics, neuroscience, and evolution/ecology, and is committed to liberal arts education in a culturally diverse community. Applicants are required to have a Ph.D. and postdoctoral experience, expected to demonstrate excellence in research and teaching, and be prepared to launch an independent, externally funded, laboratory-based research program that will provide training opportunities for graduate and undergraduate students.

Wesleyan University is a selective liberal-arts university located in Middletown, CT that offers Ph.D and BA/MA graduate programs in Natural Sciences and Mathematics. The Biology Department's multidisciplinary programs provide a stimulating research environment supported by core facilities that include confocal, scanning and transmission electron microscopes as well as access to Wesleyan's super computer facilities and Quantitative Analysis Center. The successful applicant will teach one formal course each semester (rotating among introductory, intermediate, and advanced topics in cell or developmental biology) and participate in the co-teaching of a journal club and graduate seminars. Additional duties include advising and mentoring undergraduate and graduate students and participating in faculty governance at the departmental and university level.
