Faculty Positions in Biology and Environmental Science

Bard College at Simon's Rock invites applications for two full-time faculty positions: one in Biology and one in Environmental Science, beginning fall 2014. Simon’s Rock offers faculty the opportunity to teach talented and motivated undergraduate students in small class settings.

In Biology, the College seeks candidates who can teach animal physiology (200 level) and participate in teaching introductory biology. In addition, applicants will be expected to develop advanced courses in two or more of the following areas: neuroscience, animal behavior, ecophysiology, plant-animal interactions, developmental biology, and/or evolution.

In Environmental Science, the College seeks candidates with interests in climate change and its impacts on ecological systems. The successful candidate will be able to teach introductory classes in environmental studies and ecology and advanced classes in his/her areas of expertise. Such areas may include, but are not limited to: GIS, sustainability, agriculture, and field methodology.

In at least one of these appointments the College looks to maintain its tradition of offering students field-research experiences. For both positions, a PhD (or ABD status), prior college teaching, and an active research program that can engage undergraduate students are required. Candidates must be able to teach undergraduate courses at all levels. Other position responsibilities include scholarly activity, supporting undergraduate research, academic advising, and participating in campus life and governance. Review of applications will begin November 15, 2013, and will continue until the position is filled. In all hires, Simon’s Rock seeks to increase the diverse perspectives of its faculty and encourages applications from members of underrepresented groups.
