Assistant Professor - Quantitative Integrative Biology

Apply now Job no: 492596
Categories: Faculty
Department: Biology

The Davidson College Biology Department invites applications for a tenure-track position in quantitative integrative biology at the assistant professor level.  The position will begin July 01, 2018.  We seek a biologist who addresses research questions at the organismal level using contemporary statistical, molecular, cellular, genetic, and/or computational tools with demonstrated potential for excellence in undergraduate education.  The new faculty member will teach in rotation: a cutting edge organismal-level course (with lab) that conceptually and methodologically goes both above and below the organismal level, biostatistics (BIO240), the organismal-ecosystem half of introductory biology (BIO112/114), and an additional course in the candidate's areas of expertise.  

A PhD in biology or a related field is required, with postdoctoral research and teaching experience strongly preferred.  The successful candidate will be expected to develop an active research program capable of attracting external funding and producing peer-reviewed publications with undergraduate co-authors.  Start-up funds and dedicated research lab space in a new interdisciplinary science building designed to promote innovative teaching and collaboration among STEM fields will be provided.  For further information regarding the position, see www.davidson.edu/academics/biology/2017tenure-track-position

Apply online only at http://employment.davidson.edu  by September 25, 2017. Along with your application please attach a cover letter, CV, and three statements (each a maximum of two pages), one describing a teaching philosophy, one describing a research program, and one describing how teaching, research, and/or service might contribute to Davidson's commitment to diversity and inclusion.  The application requests the names and contact information for at least three references who will be contacted directly.     

Davidson College, located 20 miles from Charlotte, NC, is strongly committed to achieving excellence and inclusivity.  We welcome applications from women, members of underrepresented minority groups, and others who bring additional dimensions to the college's mission.
