Assistant Professor of Biology

 

Xavier University invites applications for a tenure track faculty position in the Department of Biology to begin in Fall, 2020. The individual must hold a Ph.D. degree in an area of the biological sciences with expertise in biomolecular sciences (developmental biology, genomics or immunology preferred). Responsibilities include teaching introductory-level biology as well as upper division courses related to the candidate’s area of expertise, active engagement in scholarly activities, development of a research program involving undergraduates, and advising of students. The successful candidate must have demonstrated excellence in teaching undergraduates.  Experience in mentoring undergraduates in research is a plus, as is the interest in collaboration across disciplines, particularly computational biology.

 

Xavier is committed to a diverse and inclusive environment. We welcome a broad spectrum of candidates, and particularly invite applications from women, ethnic and racial minorities, and other individuals who are under-represented in the profession.

 

The successful candidate will join Xavier faculty in the 500-year-old Jesuit Catholic tradition of academic excellence in the liberal arts serving a diverse population of students. Xavier’s location in Cincinnati allows faculty to work with community partners to develop engaged learning and internship opportunities. Xavier is a member of the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities as well as the Big East. U.S. News and World Report has ranked the University 20 years in a row among the top 10 Midwest colleges and universities.

 

Applicants should submit the following to Xavier University’s website, https://www.xavier.edu/working-at-xavier/: an application letter, curriculum vitae, statement of teaching philosophy, and a statement of research interests that includes ideas for research with undergraduates. Additionally, three letters of reference should be sent to Biosearch@xavier.edu. Review of applications will begin October 30, 2019. Questions may be sent to the Chair of the Biology Department, Dr. Jennifer Robbins at robbins@xavier.edu.
