Please share with individuals who may be interested:

The Biology Department at Bucknell University invites applications for a
one-year Visiting Assistant Professor position to begin August 2022. We
seek a broadly trained biologist with specialization in neurobiology,
including but not limited to neurophysiology. The successful candidate must
have a strong commitment to undergraduate teaching and an equally strong
commitment to diversity, inclusion, and student-centered pedagogical
approaches. Documentation of the candidate’s commitment to equity in
education must be included in the application materials.

The position carries a three-course load each semester as follows, in the
fall semester: an upper-level seminar course on topics in neuropathology,
such as neuropathology or neurodevelopment, and an upper-level
neurophysiology course with an accompanying lab; in the spring semester
(tentatively): two sections of a course-based undergraduate research
experience lab for first-year students and a lab section in our biology
core course sequence. The candidate may also have the possibility of
support for involving undergraduates in their own research. Applicants must
have earned a Ph.D. or be ABD at the time of appointment and have relevant
teaching experience or a demonstrated commitment to effective teaching.

Applications should include 1) a cover letter that includes a brief
description of research expertise, 2) curriculum vitae, 3) a teaching
statement that includes a brief description of proposed courses (either new
or existing), 4) a statement on diversity and equity that addresses the
applicant’s experience with and commitment to fostering an inclusive
learning environment, and 5) the names and contact information for three
people who can, upon our request, send us confidential letters of
recommendation. Applications will only be accepted through Bucknell's
online career center (careers.bucknell.edu). Review of applications will
begin mid-June 2022, and the search will remain open until the position is
filled. Questions about the position should be directed to Le Paliulis (
le.paliulis at bucknell.edu), Professor of Biology.
