Faculty Position in Biology at Michigan State University

The Lyman Briggs College (LBC) at Michigan State University (MSU) invites applications for a biology faculty position in the Academic Specialist Appointment System. This is an academic year faculty position that starts August 16, 2017. Candidates must have disciplinary or pedagogical research interests in Biology or Biology Education; be broadly trained in biology; and be enthusiastic about joining the community of teaching-focused faculty within LBC. This position requires a strong commitment to teaching a diverse undergraduate student body using student-centered pedagogical techniques. Experience with instructional strategies that engage students in active learning and an interest in collecting data on student learning (i.e., DBER) are especially desirable. The successful applicant will focus on teaching undergraduate biology lectures and laboratories in LBC. The position offers exciting opportunities for candidates interested in teaching in a small, liberal-arts college environment with all of the resources provided by a large “Big 10” research university. Applications received before January 20, 2017 will receive priority consideration. For full details, including application instructions, visit: http://lymanbriggs.msu.edu/faculty/openPositions.cfm.
