Assistant Professor of Biology – Molecular Biology – Immunology

The Department of Biology at Colby College is seeking an Immunologist to fill a tenure-track position as Assistant Professor of Biology to begin September 1, 2023. Applicants should have a Ph.D. in a relevant field. Candidates who use molecular, ecological, and evolutionary approaches to immunology are all welcome to apply. Postdoctoral experience is desirable. A strong commitment to undergraduate education is expected. We are especially interested in candidates who, through their research, teaching, and service, will contribute to the diversity and excellence of the campus community.

Teaching involves the equivalent of 4.5 courses per year, with laboratories and seminars constituting a portion of that load. The teaching responsibilities will include Immunology, Molecular Biology, and an advanced course in the candidate’s field of expertise. In some years, teaching duties may include a 100-level introductory biology course and a seminar for seniors majoring in Biology.

The successful candidate is expected to establish an active research program that includes supervision and mentoring of undergraduates. Our facilities are well-suited for work with non-mammalian model organisms and cell culture. Active affiliations with the Jackson Laboratory, Mount Desert Island Biological Laboratory, and Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences provide potential for collaborative research opportunities. An attractive startup package is available. Female candidates will be considered for a Clare Boothe Luce Assistant Professorship, which includes dedicated annual research funds and salaries for undergraduate research assistants.

Please submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, contact information for three referees, statements of teaching philosophy and research interests, a statement describing the candidate’s potential contributions to Colby's institutional commitment to diversity and inclusive pedagogy, graduate transcripts, and a representative sample of recently published work on Interfolio link: http://apply.interfolio.com/112363.
