Instructor of Biology

The Department of Biology at Lander University, a public comprehensive university in the Upstate region of South Carolina, comprises a cohesive and forward-thinking faculty who deliver an outcomes-based curriculum that has been carefully aligned with the goals of the AAAS Vision and Change initiative.  This modern approach involves not only our major programs but our courses for non-majors as well.

Our department is poised to hire a two year visiting position to teach introductory biology to non-majors. This is a full-time, non-tenure-track position with responsibilities in both the classroom and laboratory.  Continued enrollment growth is anticipated at Lander, and this position may be needed beyond the initial two-year time frame. The ideal candidate will share our passion for student-centered learning and innovative teaching practices that are outcomes based. Our laboratories are inquiry driven, and experience with this approach is preferred. Skills that support this mission include the ability to instruct students in design, implementation, and analysis of results of biological experiments appropriate for undergraduate biology courses.

Minimum qualifications: Applicants must have at least a Master’s degree in the biological sciences and demonstrable aptitude for teaching biology at the college level. Excellent oral and written communication skills are necessary.

Application letters should explicitly address the qualifications and desired aptitudes outlined above. 

Send application letter; curriculum vitae; statement of teaching philosophy; copies of undergraduate and graduate transcripts; and the names, addresses, e-mail addresses, and phone numbers of three references to:
