  • Visiting Professor of Biology

    Guest Dale Kennedy
    • Employer: Albion College
      Location: Albion MI
      Country: United States
      Last Date to Apply: No value
      Open Until Filled: Yes

    The Biology Department at Albion College invites applications for two visiting full-time, one-year teaching positions beginning August, 2023.  Albion College is dedicated to the highest quality in undergraduate education and committed to diversity as a core institutional value.  The successful candidates will teach courses with a field component in the area of their organismal specialty (plant, invertebrate, or vertebrate), and will contribute to our introductory course, Ecology, Evolution, and Biodiversity.  Additional teaching responsibilities may include a course in the candidate’s area of expertise. Opportunities to teach in our Honors program are also available.  Preference will be given to candidates who have completed their Ph.D.  We are especially interested in candidates who will contribute to a campus climate that supports equity, diversity, and belonging. Albion College aspires to be an anti-racist institution. This position will actively promote diversity, belonging and equity through critical and compassionate communication and strategic outreach efforts to various students, faculty and staff (e.g., historically under-represented, first-generation, undocumented and DACA students, LGBTQ students).   

    The Biology Department resides in a well-equipped, interdisciplinary science complex (see https://www.albion.edu/departments/biology/).  This position provides an excellent opportunity for candidates interested in gaining experience in the pursuit of a teaching career.  Class sizes are small, allowing for close student/faculty interaction and providing opportunities for innovative, active approaches to teaching and learning.  

    Application Instructions

    Candidates should submit an online application including a letter of application, current curriculum vitae, official academic transcripts, a statement of undergraduate teaching experience and philosophy, a research statement, a diversity statement, and a list of three references through Interfolio at http://apply.interfolio.com/123578. Reference letters will be requested at a later date. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.  Please contact Dr. Sheila Lyons-Sobaski (Biology Chair) with any questions at slyons@albion.edu.
