The Department of Biology at the University of Richmond invites applications for a tenure track position as an Assistant Professor of Biology. The start date is August 2019.
We seek a broadly-trained biologist who will excel in inclusive, undergraduate teaching and engage undergraduate students in their productive research program. Candidates should have a doctoral degree, post-doctoral experience, and expertise in the field(s) of ecology, evolution, or organismal biology. Candidates who study aquatic systems or integrate quantitative/computational skills in their teaching and research are encouraged to apply. The successful applicant is expected to teach upper-level biology electives in their area of expertise and introductory courses in the major, including Integrated Biological Principles II, which focuses on organismal physiology and ecology within the context of evolution (https://biology.richmond.edu/courses/BIOL202.pdf). We are especially interested in recruiting individuals who have interest and experience in broadening access and inclusivity in STEM disciplines, which aligns with the recommendations of “Vision and Change in Undergraduate Education: A Call to Action” (http://www.visionandchange.org/) and the University’s strategic plan (https://strategicplan.richmond.edu/).
