Dordt College is seeking a post-doctoral level faculty member for a one to two-year appointment beginning August 2017 (preferred) or January 2018.  The position will include: teaching assignments in botany, environmental studies, introductory chemistry for life sciences, and other related areas; time to develop a research program including shared mentoring of undergraduate research; and receiving mentoring and training in teaching, undergraduate research, and Christian perspective.

The Biology and Chemistry departments at Dordt College have a strong history of preparing students for graduate and professional schools, industry and K-12 education.

In this training position, candidates will be mentored by expert teachers and researchers in Biology and Chemistry in preparation for full-time, tenure track teaching/research positions. As a Reformed Christian institution, an integral part of this post-doctoral training program will be development of the candidate’s Christian worldview and how it impacts both teaching and research endeavors.

Qualified persons committed to a Christian worldview and ready to explore and experience how their Christianity will impact their life in the academy are encouraged to apply by following the application process below for Adjunct faculty.
