School of Math and Science Faculty Positions

Biology

Description: The School of Mathematics and Sciences of Marian University invites applications for a tenure track position in biology. The candidate should have a strong interest in undergraduate teaching and promoting and supervising research done by undergraduate students. The teaching duties will consist of microbiology for majors and allied health and other courses in the candidate’s areas of specialization both at the baccalaureate and at the masters degree level. The candidate will be expected to involve undergraduate students in research. The candidate will have scholarship expertise in microbiological genetics and classical microbiology. The ideal candidate will have additional scholarship expertise in as many as possible of the following areas: (1) mycology, (2) classical genetics, (3) immunology, (4) biochemistry; and (5) cell biology. The successful candidate will be expected to help establish a vigorous and innovative undergraduate research program in microbiological genetics that successfully overlaps with our current areas of expertise in green organic chemistry, animal and neuroscience, ecology, and environmental science. The successful candidate must be capable of and committed to teaching, community service, outreach, and scholarship. Additional responsibilities include student advising and active membership on departmental, college-wide, and university committees.

Credentials, Skills, and Experience: Candidates should possess a Ph.D. in microbiological genetics or a closely related area. Candidates must have outstanding teaching and lecturing skills and provide evidence of excellence in teaching undergraduates. Preference will be for candidates who are experienced in the use of student-centered, hands-on, and inquiry-based teaching methodologies. Candidates must also have a strong record of research accomplishments, ideally at or that transfer well to, an undergraduate research setting.

Biology or Chemistry

Description: The School of Mathematics and Sciences of Marian University invites applications for a tenure track position with a primary appointment in either biology or chemistry. The candidate should have a strong interest in undergraduate teaching and supervising research done by undergraduate students. The teaching duties will consist of core and advanced level courses in cell biology as well as well as the two-semester sequence in biochemistry. The candidate will also be expected to be able to teach a course or two in the candidate’s areas of specialization both at the baccalaureate and at the masters degree level. The candidate will be expected to involve undergraduate students in research. The candidate will have scholarship expertise in cell biology and biochemistry. The ideal candidate will have additional scholarship expertise in one or more of the following areas: (1) biophysical chemistry, (2) immunology, (3) botany, and (4) developmental biology. The successful candidate will be expected to help establish a vigorous and innovative undergraduate research program in that successfully overlaps with our current areas of expertise in green organic chemistry, animal and neuroscience, ecology, and environmental science.
