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.
