Tenure track position in Neurobiology-Lewis & Clark College

The Biology Department at Lewis & Clark College invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professorship in neurobiology to begin September 2011. Candidates should be committed to excellent teaching and to developing a productive, externally-funded research program involving undergraduates. We seek a broadly trained individual to teach one or more courses in neurobiology, and to participate in an HHMI-funded program in neuroscience. Candidates must work on non-mammalian systems because the College currently lacks PHS certification for the care and use of mammals in research. The successful candidate will also rotate in teaching introductory biology and contribute to the College’s general education program. Ph.D. required, postdoctoral experience preferred.

Submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, a description of research plans and of teaching interests and philosophy and representative reprints to: Chair of the Search Committee, Department of Biology, Lewis & Clark College, Portland, OR 97219, or by email to biology@lclark.edu. Letter of application should describe how the candidate’s interests and abilities would strengthen the Biology department’s program. Applicants are also invited to address how their teaching and research would contribute to the College’s commitment to cultivate diversity in the learning community. Please arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent under separate cover. Review of applications will begin on October 25th, 2010, and will continue until position is filled.
