Job Description:

The Department of Biology at Saint Michael’s College invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track faculty position for an assistant professor of biology starting in the 2015-2016 academic year. The successful candidate will be expected to participate in the team teaching of introductory biology and to teach upper-level lecture and laboratory courses in the areas of human anatomy and physiology thus enhancing the department’s offerings for students interested in post-graduate opportunities in health care.  Advising students pursuing careers in the health professions will become part of this new faculty member’s role.  The successful candidate must also maintain a productive scholarship program focusing on research at the organismal level providing opportunities for student involvement. Expertise in the area of developmental neuroscience is specifically encouraged.  Please note however that the Biology Department does not have facilities to maintain live mammals or birds; the successful candidate should have a research program focused on invertebrate or fish developmental neuroscience.  Research programs strictly at the population or cell and molecular levels are not compatible with this position.

Benefits include health, dental, vision, life, disability, 401(k), employee and dependent tuition benefits, and discounted gym membership.


  • Ph.D. in biology or related organismal field
  • College-level teaching experience
  • Promising record of scholarship
  • Willingness to participate as part of a team of colleagues with the primary focus being the learning and development of our students.
  • Direct experience in the health care industry or in advising pre-health students would be valued.

An offer of employment will be contingent upon the successful completion of a background check.
