Please pass the following job announcement to potantial applicants you
might know.  For the Intro Biology position we are seeking an outstanding
science educator.  Although the ad lists three preference areas, those are
preferences only, and would contribute only small weight to the overall
evaluation of applicants.  In other words, wonderful teachers who happen to
be plant biologists should definitely apply.  Although the main teaching
responsibility would be for our intro courses, other teaching opportunities
(botany, zoology, cell/molecular biology, elementary/secondary science
education, etc.) should also be available.  We are in the midst of a major
curriculum revision (undergrad and grad), so many interesting curricular
changes are occurring.
