Adelphi University invites applications for two tenure-track positions in
biology to begin fall 2015. The first position is for a molecular biologist,
broadly defined, who must be able to teach biochemistry, molecular biology,
and the first semester of introductory biology (covering basic cell biology,
biochemistry, and genetics). Additional teaching responsibilities will be
determined, but could include service courses and/or specialty courses for
upper-level undergraduates and master’s students in the area of expertise.
The second position is for an organismal biologist with expertise in anatomy
and physiology. Teaching responsibilities will include human anatomy &
physiology and could include courses such as histology, animal behavior,
pathophysiology for nursing students, introductory biology, and/or
additional specialty courses for upper-level undergraduates and master’s
students in the area of expertise. For both positions, a Ph.D is required
and postdoctoral experience strongly preferred. The successful applicants
will have a commitment to teaching and excellent potential as teachers, plus
a record of significant and current research accomplishment, and the
potential to either continue or develop a fundable independent research
program involving undergraduate and master’s students. Some research release
time is available. The successful applicant will join an active, engaged,
and collegial department spanning all areas of biology. Opportunities for
collaboration exist within the university as well as in the NY metropolitan
area.  For more information about the department, visit
http://biology.adelphi.edu/. We encourage applications from members of
underrepresented groups. Adelphi is a private university with the spirit of
a liberal arts college, committed to combining teaching and scholarship, and
located in suburban Long Island within easy reach of New York City. Deadline
for applications: November 1, 2014.
