The Haverford College Biology Department seeks applications for two full-time visiting faculty positions and one part-time visiting faculty position for the 2022-2023 academic year. The successful candidates will contribute to our curriculum at a variety of levels, working with undergraduate students from diverse racial, gender, socio-economic, geographic, academic, and social backgrounds and identities.
Teaching responsibilities for these positions span our curriculum and include participation in team-taught courses and laboratories, as well as receiving teaching credit for supervision of student research.
