St. Norbert College, a private undergraduate liberal arts college, invites applications for a tenure track position at the rank of Assistant Professor of Biology beginning in August 2017. We seek a broadly trained microbiologist with experience in cellular or molecular techniques. Our ideal candidate will have a passion for teaching undergraduates and will expand and strengthen the current research scope of the Biology faculty. Teaching responsibilities may include cell-level introductory biology courses, microbiology, virology, or immunology. Candidates will also have the opportunity to develop new courses at the advanced level (http://www.snc.edu/biology/majorrequirements.html) and in the College's core curriculum program. Productive research that provides meaningful experiences for St. Norbert College undergraduates is expected, as is advising students and being an active member of the College community. A demonstration of teaching effectiveness will be part of the interview process. The candidate will join the biology department in a newly expanded and renovated science building that also houses the Green Bay campus of The Medical College of Wisconsin. A doctoral degree in biology or a related field is required at the time of appointment; postdoctoral experience is preferred.
