Please pass this on to all who might be interested.  Thanks,

A three-year renewable teaching position in biology is available at
Centre College starting fall 2001.  Over the three years,
responsibilities include teaching a one-term introductory biology
course, sophomore-level evolutionary genetics, senior seminar, and an
upper level course in specialty.  Participation in the non
science-majors natural sciences course sequence also is required.  A
strong commitment to teaching undergraduates is essential.
Collaborative research with undergraduates is expected.   Successful
candidates should have completed the requirements for a doctoral degree
in a biological discipline with a particular focus on some aspect of
organismic evolutionary or ecological studies.  Preference will be given
to candidates with previous teaching experience, including supervision
of student research projects.  Funds are available for collaborative
research with undergraduates.

Centre College is a nationally recognized liberal arts college with a
strong commitment to quality undergraduate education. There are 8
faculty teaching in the biology program; three of these individuals hold
joint appointments in the Biochemistry and Molecular biology program.
Among the biology faculty, our teaching and research interests encompass
the study of animals, plants and fungi from the molecular to the
community level.  In addition the Psychobiology program includes a
primatologist and the Anthropology program an ecological
anthropologist.   Teaching load is generally 18 hr/yr (5-6 courses, with
labs), split among 2 long terms and one middle shorter term.  All
classrooms and labs are networked; all faculty have college-supplied
computers with Internet connections.  Both SAS and SPSS are available on
the campus network.  The science programs are housed in two buildings,
Young Hall (life sciences) and Olin Hall (physical sciences).   Science
facilities include animal care rooms; an attached greenhouse; standard
molecular genetics, biochemistry  and cell biology equipment (e.g.
thermocyclers, electrophoresis set ups, HPLC, diode array
spectrophotometer, liquid scintillation counter, cryostat, fluorescence
microscopy system).  A 500 acre wildlife refuge exists within a 30
minute drive of campus.

Please send letter of application, statement of teaching philosophy,
current vitae, transcripts, and three letters of reference to Dr. John
Ward, Dean, Centre College, 600 West Walnut Street, Danville, Kentucky
40422.  Review of applicants begins March 1, 2001.  Centre College is an
Equal Opportunity Employer.
