Hood College’s Department of Biology has an exciting opportunity for a broadly-trained molecular biologist to join our campus community.

Under the general direction of the Biology Department Chair, this full-time tenure-track position at the Assistant/Associate Professor level begins August 1, 2022, just as the College launches a bold new strategic plan that builds on the department’s historical strength in biomedical research and training.   This is the perfect opportunity, at the perfect time, for candidates who are mission-driven, entrepreneurial, visionary leaders.

In addition to the responsibilities outlined below, the successful candidate will serve as the program director of our well-established Master of Science program in Biomedical Studies.

Based on their expertise and interests, the successful candidate is expected to teach, as well as actively mentor and conduct research with students (both undergraduate and graduate).

Teaching responsibilities will include master’s-level courses in molecular biology and a sophomore-level course in cell biology and genetics. Other teaching responsibilities will include elective course(s) in their area of expertise.

We seek a candidate with a strong commitment in a liberal arts setting, who is passionate about high-impact learning experiences, and who values diversity, equity and inclusion in all that they do.  Candidates must have strong organizational skills and proven ability to work collaboratively across academic disciplines.
