Two tenure-track faculty positions
Department of Biology, Harvey Mudd College

The Department of Biology at Harvey Mudd College seeks two tenure-track 
Assistant Professors with teaching and research expertise in (1) 
molecular biology and (2) computational biochemistry.     
(1) Molecular Biologist.  Teaching will include introductory lecture and 
laboratory courses, molecular biology with lab, and advanced seminar 
courses in cell and developmental biology and genetics.  The successful 
candidate will develop a vigorous independent research program that will 
involve undergraduate students during the academic year and summer.  
Research interests could include developmental genetics, signal 
transduction, or regulation of the cell cycle. 
(2)  Computational Biochemist.  We expect that the successful 
candidate's education and training will be in biology, biophysics, 
biochemistry, or related disciplines.  Teaching will include 
introductory lecture and laboratory courses, and advanced seminar, 
lecture, and/or laboratory courses in areas appropriate to the person's 
expertise.  The successful candidate will develop a vigorous independent 
research program that will involve undergraduate students during the 
academic year and summer.  Research interests could include molecular 
dynamics, protein modeling and protein folding, or molecular imaging of 
biological molecules.  We anticipate that the successful candidate's 
research will be mainly computational with the opportunity to establish 
collaborations with experimental scientists at Harvey Mudd College and 
the other Claremont Colleges. 

Harvey Mudd College, a member of the Claremont Colleges, is a small and 
highly selective private undergraduate college of science, mathematics, 
and engineering.  Claremont is approximately 35 miles east of downtown 
Los Angeles.  A Ph.D. in an appropriate discipline is required, and 
postdoctoral research experience is highly desirable.  Applicants should 
submit a CV, a statement of teaching experience and interests, a 
statement of research plans, and the names and contact information of at 
least three professional references.  Send all materials to: Dr. David 
Asai, Department Chair, Department of Biology, Harvey Mudd College, 301 
Platt Blvd., Claremont, CA 91711 (david_asai at hmc.edu).  Review of 
applications will begin November 1, 2005, and continue until the 
position is filled.  Harvey Mudd College is an equal opportunity 
employer and is committed to the recruitment of candidates historically 
underrepresented on college faculties.
