The Biology Department at Manhattan College (NYC) invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Biology beginning in Fall 2017. The successful candidate should have a deep commitment to teaching at the undergraduate level, establish a strong research program and supervise student research. It is expected that the candidates will enhance research within the Department and foster collaborations with other researchers across the College and outside. Over the course of an academic year, our faculty typically teach undergraduates at three levels: (1) introductory courses and labs for majors, (2) upper-level major courses and labs, and (3) any of several one-semester non-majors courses (arts, education, or engineering students).

Applicants should submit in electronic form a cover letter and one PDF file containing their curriculum vitae, statement of teaching philosophy, description of planned research with estimated start-up costs and three professional letters of references, one of whom should be able to address teaching ability.

Review of applications will begin on March 1, 2017 and will continue until the position is filled. Please indicate whether, or not, you have authorization to work in the United States at this time or will have it when the position begins.
