Part Time Visiting Faculty Position in Environmental Biology

Haverford College invites applications for a part-time visiting faculty position in Environmental Biology

Haverford College’s Biology Department seeks applications for a part-time faculty position in environmental biology, broadly defined.  Interest in, or experience with, team-teaching across disciplinary boundaries will be highly valued.  Women and members of underrepresented minority groups are strongly encouraged to apply and applicants should demonstrate readiness to engage a diverse student body.

Information about the department is available at Successful candidates will team-teach in a seven-week intensive junior molecular biology laboratory course, and team-teach an interdisciplinary, introductory, semester-long course in the new Tri-College Environmental Studies Program. Because these are part-time positions, post-doctoral fellows are expected to maintain an affiliation with their research group at a local university or research institute.

Candidates should submit a C.V., a brief summary of recent research activities, and a statement of teaching interests and professional goals. Two letters of recommendation should be sent separately; one must be from a current research mentor.

Complete applications will be reviewed as soon as they are received. Questions, applications, and recommendations should be sent to:
