Full-time, 12 month ongoing academic staff position
This position coordinates classroom and/or laboratory instruction associated with two, high-enrollment, introductory biology courses intended for biology majors. The successful applicant will assist with the development of pedagogy/andragogy and assessment tools and will provide resources to support quality student learning.

The mission of Introductory Biology courses (Zoology/Biology/Botany 151/152 and Zoology 153) is to provide students with not only biological knowledge, but the skills to utilize and integrate that knowledge responsibly in new and complex ways in order to meet the challenges of the twenty-first century.
