The University of Minnesota, Morris is hiring! We need someone to teach an undergraduate course in classical transmission genetics for the spring semester — I know, it’s short notice, and this is only a temporary position, but it would be ideal for someone who wants to pick up some teaching experience at a highly regarded liberal arts university while applying for permanent positions.
This is the course I teach in alternate years (2008 is not my year!), and I will be available to help whoever takes the job — at least, I’ll share my syllabi and exams and lab notes. It’s also an opportunity to work with a group of smart and motivated students; one of those intangible benefits here is the quality of the students who will be taking the course.
The University of Minnesota, Morris seeks to fill a part-time, one-semester position in genetics beginning January 22, 2008. Duties include: teaching undergraduate genetics course with labs. Minimum qualifications: Master’s degree in genetics or a related field and one year of teaching experience (graduate TA experience acceptable) required. Send letter of application, resume, transcripts, teaching statement, and names of three references to: Genetics Search Committee Chair, Division of Science and Math, University of Minnesota, Morris, MN 56267-2128. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled. Screening begins August 1, 2007. The University of Minnesota is an equal opportunity educator and employer.
A more thorough description of the position is below the fold.
