The Department of Biology at Radford University invites applications for a tenure-track teaching and research faculty position at the Assistant Professor rank in the fields of behavioral ecology, animal behavior, comparative behavior, or similar, beginning Fall 2018.
Candidates are expected to establish and maintain an active research program involving undergraduate students and contribute to university service. Preference will be given to candidates with interest in ecological aspects of behavior. Previous teaching experience preferred.
Area of specialty is open but should complement current research interests in the department. Teaching responsibilities equate to a 4:4 teaching load and may include ecology, conservation biology, comparative behavior, introductory biology, and elective courses in the candidate’s area of expertise.
The Department of Biology is focused on excellence in undergraduate teaching and has committed to the ideals of Vision & Change, and will work over the coming years to better align our curriculum and instruction with those ideals. We have recently been awarded a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Inclusive Excellence grant to use the maker movement to improve student retention and inclusion, and we have been chosen to participate in the Council on Undergraduate Research Transformations project to revise our curriculum to enhance in-class research opportunities for all students. Our faculty are also promoting quantitative literacy through the Quantitative Undergraduate Biology Education and Synthesis (QUBES) program and have participated in the SouthEast Regional PULSE Institute.
