The Biology Department at Penn State’s University Park campus is committed to innovative teaching and promotes active student-centered learning. We are seeking someone who can contribute to our instructional mission in our undergraduate anatomy & physiology courses. Our goal is to create an integrated undergraduate experience, including lecture, lab, peer mentoring, research, and residence life experiences. The Department invites applications for a non-tenure track lecturer starting Fall 2018. Teaching responsibilities will mainly be in our introductory undergraduate lecture and laboratory courses in anatomy and physiology. Other teaching responsibilities may include courses within the candidate’s area(s) of expertise. Biology lecturers at PSU are typically on 36-week appointments, teaching or coordinating two lecture/lab courses per semester, plus one additional course based on need. Additional responsibilities may include academic advising, working with TAs to develop effective teaching skills, creating and implementing inquiry-based class exercises, and assisting with curriculum assessment. This is a fixed term position that is initially funded for the 2017/2018 academic year. Innovative, effective contributions to the instructional mission of the department can lead to continuation in a multiyear appointment. Promotion through instructional ranks is available for this position. Qualifications: Master`s degree required, Ph.D. preferred. The ideal candidate will have a Ph.D. in Biology or equivalent, at least two years of teaching experience in relevant courses, and have experience working with laboratory animals and physiology data collection. Teaching experience at the undergraduate level is preferred, and documented excellence in teaching is important. Candidates should have comprehensive knowledge of their field. A demonstrated interest in pedagogy and the application of research-based teaching methods is highly desirable. Applications must be submitted electronically and include a cover letter, CV, concise statement of teaching philosophy and experience (including student and peer teaching reviews), and the names and contact information of three professional references. Full review of applications will begin on December 15, 2017 and continue until the position is filled.
