ACADEMICS

Biology Faculty (rank open)

Qualifications:

Belmont Abbey College invites applications for an Assistant or Associate Professor of Biology, to begin August 1, 2016. This tenure-track position requires an earned doctorate in invertebrate or vertebrate Biology or related discipline, a strong desire to teach and mentor undergraduate students, the ability to communicate material in the discipline effectively to students, colleagues, and the public at large, and a collegial attitude.

The primary responsibility of this position is to teach undergraduate courses in both the traditional day college and, potentially, in the Adult Degree Program (ADP) at night.  The position requires the individual to teach General Biology as well as courses that are in or are related to their specific discipline.   It may also require the person to teach a course in the Freshman Symposium program.  The individual filling this position will teach a minimum of twelve (12) credit hours per semester and will also teach laboratories in General Biology and in the specific courses in the discipline.   A secondary responsibility of this position is to involve students in research projects as resources allow.   Beyond those responsibilities there are the general requirements of all faculty.   The individual will serve as an academic advisor to students.  This may include students who are undecided as to their intended major and those who have declared biology as their major.  The individual will be required to serve on committees of the College and of the faculty as appropriate.

While the primary expectation for the person filling this position is teaching and service, the individual is also expected to maintain currency in their discipline through participation in professional organizations and, as resources permit, research and publication.

In addition to having a solid foundation in the liberal arts, the successful candidate will be able to articulate scientific insights in the context of the liberal arts educational tradition and the Catholic understanding of the human person. The successful candidate will also demonstrate commitment to an intellectual life consistent with the College’s identity as a Catholic, Benedictine school that aims to provide an excellent undergraduate education “in the liberal arts and sciences so that in all things God may be glorified.”  Preference will be given to those candidates who can demonstrate a philosophy of teaching and research that fits well with the institution’s emphasis on the education of the whole person, and with the approach to education expressed in St. John Paul II’s Ex Corde Ecclesiae.

Academic rank and salary will be commensurate with the candidate’s credentials and experience.

To apply:

A review of applications will begin immediately.  Please email application materials to Dr. Mike McLeod (mikemcleod@bac.edu),  including letter of application, vita, the names and contact information of at least three references, and a written response in which you explain how you would incorporate the College’s mission into your teaching, service, and scholarship as a faculty member of the Department of Biology and contribute positively to the fulfillment of the mission.
