The Associate in Arts Program (AAP) at the University of Delaware seeks to hire a continuing track (CT) faculty member in biological sciences at the rank of Assistant Professor to begin on September 1, 2017. We seek an individual to teach a broad range of introductory courses in the biological sciences including human heredity & development, elementary human physiology, and elementary evolutionary ecology.

The AAP, with campuses in Wilmington, Dover, and Georgetown, is an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary associate degree program that includes coursework in humanities, history, social and behavioral sciences, natural sciences, and languages. AAP students constitute a racially and socioeconomically diverse body of learners, the majority of whom go on to pursue majors in all seven colleges on the University of Delaware's main campus. AAP students enjoy an uninterrupted transition from the AAP to a bachelor's degree program in the junior year. Faculty who teach in the AAP commit a majority of their time and effort to preparing students to succeed in their transition to bachelor's degree programs or to the workforce. Other responsibilities include student advising and university service. CT faculty are eligible for promotion and sabbaticals and receive the full range of benefits that the University of Delaware provides faculty as part of their compensation package.
The successful candidate for this position will primarily teach in Wilmington, with opportunities to teach in Dover, and may expect to begin with the start of the fall 2017 semester in late August.
