Job posting from the University of Puget Sound, looking for someone with an interest in both teaching and bioinformatics. Summary text below:
The Department of Biology at the University of Puget Sound, a predominantly undergraduate liberal arts college in Tacoma, Washington, seeks to recruit a tenure-line Assistant Professor. Excellence in teaching is highly valued at Puget Sound and we expect the incumbent to show promise and enthusiasm to become a skilled teacher. We anticipate for the individual in this position to participate in teaching our introductory biology series, undergraduate courses in the area of genetics, as well as an upper level class in the incumbent’s area of proficiency. We are particularly interested in individuals with expertise in applied bioinformatics or genomics who are interested in working with other faculty to incorporate computational biology into new and existing courses within the biology curriculum. We hope that the individual in this position will join the department in actively working on inclusion issues in science education. A typical teaching load consists of one class with its three accompanying laboratory sections, or the equivalent, each semester. We expect the incumbent to develop an active research program that incorporates undergraduate research opportunities, and that complements existing research efforts in the Department of Biology. We are interested in a wide variety of model and non-model systems.
