Lewis & Clark College is currently running a search for a new tenure-track faculty position in molecular biology.
The ideal candidate for this position will establish a research program that uses experimental approaches to investigate the molecular
mechanisms that underlie the regulation of gene expression (for example, chromatin modifications, epigenetics, noncoding RNAs) and/or
genome integrity and stability. Candidates should be committed to excellent teaching and to developing a productive, externally funded
research program involving undergraduates. We seek a colleague who shares our enthusiasm for providing students from diverse
backgrounds with outstanding teaching, research, and mentoring in science. The successful candidate will have a joint appointment
in the Biology Department and the Biochemistry/Molecular Biology Program.
Lewis & Clark College is a private liberal arts college of approximately 1,900 undergraduates. The faculty in Biology share a common
vision and commitment to innovative science teaching and undergraduate research. We represent the full spectrum of biological
investigation in both teaching and research, and we all maintain active, externally funded research programs (one of which employs C. elegans).
We attract bright, curious and engaged students who are a delight to teach and mentor in research.
Portland is a beautiful, friendly city with a vibrant arts culture and an active downtown. Nestled between the Cascade mountain range
and the Pacific coast, the city is well known for its fantastic food, coffee, microbreweries, its commitment to environmental issues and
access to the outdoors. For example, Portland has been named both the most sustainable as well as the top bike-friendly city in the country.
The deadline for application is October 1.
We would be delighted to answer any questions about our department, the College, or Portland in general.
