Job Description:

Animal Physiologist: The Biology Department of Wittenberg University seeks to hire a tenure-track faculty member who can support Biology majors by teaching courses and providing undergraduate research opportunities in animal physiology beginning August 2019. Teaching responsibilities include courses in vertebrate zoology and animal physiology, and a non-majors course in human anatomy and physiology.
