Lecturer in Biology (BIOL 221)
The Biology Department at Lake Forest College seeks an adjunct faculty member to teach one lab section of our core course, Molecules, Genes, and Cells (BIOL 221), during the spring semester of 2022. This teaching assignment counts as one course prep with the expectation of providing four hours per week of laboratory teaching and additional office hours. This is one lab section of five, and labs are already in place with a focus on experimental design. Although a PhD is desirable, candidates having several years of graduate study will be considered. There is flexibility concerning the days and time of day when the course will be offered, and there may be offerings in the future. The course may be taught in the evening from 6-9:50 PM on either Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday, or in an afternoon from 12-3:50 PM. Spring semester at Lake Forest College extends from January 11th – May 4th. If interested and qualified, the possibility exists to teach a lab section in our core course, Evolution & Ecology (BIOL 220), during the fall 2021 semester (see separate job ad).
